Capitals Insider: April 8, 2007 - April 14, 2007

Hershey's Calder Cup defense ...

begins Wednesday against Albany at Giant Center in Hershey, Pa. Game 2 of the East Division semifinal series is Thursday. If you've never seen a game up there, you are missing out. Great arena, great crowds and some pretty good hockey, too. Not to mention the Bears' lineup, of course,...
