Morning Reading List
As the Capitals prepare to head west for their six-day road trip to Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose and Minnesota here are some stories to get you caught up after the weekend.
*The folks over at NHL.com were impressed by the Capitals dominating win over Carolina last week and in their weekly division notes said the win solidified Washington's identity as the team to beat in the Southeast.
*For the second time in his career, Alex Ovechkin dented the Devils' Scott Clemmensen's mask.
*It's no secret that the Capitals' entire organization has reaped the benefits of losing seasons and high draft picks, and here's Hockey's Future 2008 audit of the Caps' system to attest that all those selections are coming to fruition. And this just a good a segue as any....
In the system:
*Hershey entered this past weekend as losers of four of their past five, but the Bears got things straightened out with a pair of wins over Philadelphia and a rout of Binghamton for a full six-point weekend.
*On Friday, Francois Bouchard, Graham Mink and Chris Bourque scored goals to help the Bears claim a 3-2 victory over the Phantoms and netminder Scott Munroe, who had 36 saves.
*The win was the first time Hershey hit the nine-goal mark at Giant Center, with their last nine-goal game in regular season coming on Oct. 23, 1993 over Rochester at Hersheypark Arena. The loss was the most lopsided ever for the Senators who heard fans at the Giant Center began chanting "We want 10. We want 10." -- in the middle of the second period.
