Morning Reading List

After what can only be described as an ugly 5-0 loss to Buffalo Saturday, the Caps lost their scheduled day off yesterday, and Tarik wrote about the most grueling practice of Coach Bruce Boudreau's tenure for today's hard-copy edition.

*Alex Ovechkin has returned from Russia, but as many of you know while he was there he attended a Dynamo Moscow game where a smoke bomb went off inside the arena. Puck Daddy has the best video I've seen of the incident.

*Senators' netminder Alex Auld should make his sixth straight start when the Capitals visit Ottawa Tuesday. Auld is 3-2 with a .931 save percentage and 2.15 GAA so far this season.

*Not too long ago, the Senators were trying to stop visiting a 'country club' of their own.

In the system:
*Hershey squeaks out a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Phantoms, thanks to rookies Oskar Osala, Mathieu Perreault and Francois Bouchard, who each scored a goal in the final 10 minutes of the game.

*Earlier this weekend the Phantoms dolled out a 5-2 loss to the Bears.

*Prospect Joe Finley missed North Dakota's season opener (a 3-2 loss to Wisconsin) with a concussion. Fighting Sioux Coach Dave Hakstol has said Finley is day-to-day.

For your amusement:
*Tired of being bombarded with political ads and messages in preparation for tomorrow's election? TSN's James Duthie decided to put quotes from candidates on both sides of the U.S. Presidential election in an NHL context.

*I know we've passed Halloween, but seriously who doesn't like looking at goalie masks? The Hockey News gives you their top-10 scariest masks.

Losing a home and home set to Philly? Inexcusable. Let's bring Huet and Kolzig back to stop the bleeding.

The Hershey Bear I am most excited about for the future is Perreault. He is fast & not afraid to go into the corners. I am sure he will step right into Feds or Nylander spot in the near future.

I loved Osala's quote about playing on a line with Perreault and Bouchard:

"It's [those] two Frenchies," joked Osala, a Finn. "They're so skilled and so quick. I just try to skate and make room for them and keep my stick on the ice to be ready for a shot."
