Caps Quick Hits
The WaPo tries to get to the bottom of why "Automatic Alex" ain't so automatic these days and the WTimes takes yet another well-deserved day off (two articles a week can really tucker a paper out).
Elsewhere 'Round the Rinks (and Beyond):
- I'd like to thank everyone who went over and checked out Southeast Shootout yesterday. We had a much bigger-than-expected opening day and have set the bar pretty high. Keep checking it out pre-game, post-game and during the game every time the Caps are taking on one of their Southeast Division foes.
