The Caps head to South Beach to take on the Kitties tonight. I'll have my pre-game thoughts over at SeSo later in the day, and as it's an intra-division game, make sure to check in over there in the open thread and leave your thoughts as well pre-, mid- or post-game.
This morning's WTimes discusses some similarities between the Caps and the Panthers (hint: penalties bad) and briefly touches on Boyd Gordon's roll on the team (hint: it's not to score goals).
Also be sure to check out the number-crunching KB has done on the Caps' season so far (via OWO). Good to see someone else in love with Google spreadsheets (though sadly the link in Eric's post isn't good - hook me up, KB!).
