Capitals Insider: December 17, 2006 - December 23, 2006

Nycholat Recalled

I'm told defenseman Lawrence Nycholat has been recalled from the Hershey Bears on a emergency basis for tonight's game in Toronto. He'll replace Shaone Morrisonn, who missed Friday's 4-1 loss to the Devils with the flu. Morrisonn did not make the trip to T.O. The Caps had only five defensemen...

A Brutal Stretch

While much of the world takes some time off for the holidays, the Caps (and the sports writers who follow them) are bracing themselves for a downright brutal stretch. Has anyone out there looked at the next week? I have. And I'm not afraid to say that come April, the...

Opportunity Knocks

Coaches and (smart) players rarely use this expression, but since I'm neither, here it is: Tonight's game against the Lightning is a 'must win' for Ovie and Co. There, I said it. If the Caps (7-1-1 in their last nine and coming off back-to-back solid, 60 minute efforts) are going...

Has Ovechkin Found Another Gear?

Before I get to No. 8, here's a quick injury report from today's practice: Defenseman John Erskine, who took a shot off the foot Saturday night, did not skate. Usually that means the player won't be in the lineup the following night. But Coach Glen Hanlon cautioned that Erskine should...
