Caps Night at the Nats
Last night, five Caps attended the Nats-Mets game at RFK for the another edition of "Capitals Night at the Nationals". They signed some autographs for fans and took some hacks during batting practice.
I was suprised to learn that Brian Sutherby (of Edmonton) and Tom Poti (of Worcester, Mass.) actually had "warning track power," according to one of my sources. Not so much for Matt Pettinger, Chris Clark and Steve Eminger, I'm told.
"At least nobody embarrassed themselves," my source told me.
After batting practice, Nats pitcher Jason Bergmann, a hockey fan who attends games at Verizon Center, took the Caps on a tour of the locker room and "facilities" at RFK. Poti gave Nats Manager Manny Acta a signed stick.
I would ask the Caps about all of this, but they are team meetings at the moment and won't be available until after today's scrimmage.
Speaking of today's scrimmage, it ought to be pretty good since most of the non-NHL guys have been weeded out in recent days.
Update:A new batch of sticks just showed up for Olie Kolzig--and not a minute too soon. The temperamental goalie has already smashed three sticks this camp, by my count anyway. He just cracked one in half after Brian Pothier hit him with a high and tight slapper.
