Capitals Insider: October 28, 2007 - November 3, 2007

Quote Of The Day

With another road trip looming, the Caps, who woke up this morning in 14th place in the Eastern Conference, are off today. So I'm not expecting much in the way of news. I was replaying some of the post-game interviews in my head last night on the drive home, searching...

Online Chat at 2

Good afternoon. Sorry for the late entry, but I spent much of this morning traveling back from New York, which included an unexpected layover in Philly because of a problem with the train. Anyway, there's no update regarding the Caps' injured players. It still sounds like Clark, Semin and Poti...

Friday's Washington Capitals game against the Philadelphia Flyers and the Nov. 8 game against the Ottawa Senators will be...

Thursday Morning Update

It's not looking good for the injured Caps. Clark (lacerated left ear) didn't skate this morning and said he's still suffering from a bit of dizziness. He said he doesn't have a concussion, but he's not going to play tonight or tomorrow. And his ear, to my surprise, doesn't look...

Clark in NYC; Injury Update

I'm told that team captain Chris Clark has arrived in NYC. He's going to practice today and make sure everything feels okay. If it does, the rugged right wing should be ready to go tomorrow night against the Rangers. I'm planning to talk to him later today by phone and...

Semin and Poti Skate; Clark En Route To NYC

I'm here in Washington, but I'm told that winger Alexander Semin (sprained right ankle) and defenseman Tom Poti (strained groin muscle) practiced this afternoon in NYC. I'm also told that Chris Clark (lacerated left ear) is expected to join the team perhaps as soon as tonight. I'm still not sure...

Ovechkin Talkin' the Talk

The other day in St. Louis, goaltender Brent Johnson said the Caps needed to get their "swagger" back. He obviously wasn't referring to teammate Alex Ovechkin, who never seems to be lacking in the self-confidence department. From last night's 7-1 blowout in Toronto: "Nobody can stop me ... just me,"...

Ovechkin Talks Contract (Briefly) and Bondra Retires

Alex Ovechkin hasn't said much regarding his talks with the Caps about a contract extension. But the all-star left wing, whose entry level deal expires after the season, was in a chatty mood this morning in Toronto, and chose to shed a little light on the subject. "I want to...

Not Looking Good For Injured Caps

The Caps just hit the ice at ACC for the morning skate. Alexander Semin is not out there, and Chris Clark did not travel to Toronto. Both of them, I'm assuming are out, though I plan to confirm this with GM George McPhee in a bit. Defenseman Tom Poti is...

Injury Update

Sorry for the late entry, but I had laptop/connectivity issues after last night's game. Semin is officially listed as day-to-day after leaving the Caps' 4-3 loss to St. Louis in the first period with an ankle injury. Yes, it's the same ankle that caused him to miss six of the...
