Tonight, J.P. and the Caps travel to Raleigh to face the Champs (well, only the Caps will face the Champs). For my preliminary thoughts on the game, check out J.P.'s Keys over at SeSo. Sorry I don't have more, but it's a travel day.
Dainius Zubrus fans, be sure to check out today's WaPo article on the Lithuanian pivot, and Chris Clark fans should check out today's WTimes article on the Caps Connecticut-born Cap'n. What - no love for the third member of that line?
