Welcome Caps fans!
Naturally we'll discuss not-so-Caps news for the first half. But these are important to hockey. Plus how could I pass up a chance to make fun of the Commissioner? Also, a triumph for women's hockey in the USA. And the misadventures of a hated rival.
In Caps news, we go over the current road trip and what to look for in tonight's game. Plus kudos to an unsung Swede who's earned a moment in the NHL spotlight for a week...no, not the one you're thinking of. Plus could it be goodbye for our beloved backup?
