  • With Carlson’s return, the Caps had a rare healthy lineup in tact, the first time the team’s six core veterans from the 2018 run have played together this season. [NBCSW]
  • Carlson (and Darcy Kuemper) making their way back into the lineup meant we bid farewell to Gabriel Carlsson and Zach Fucale, who were headed back to Hershey. [Caps]
  • Do the Caps struggle against the league’s whippersnapper young’un teams? [NoVa Caps]
  • Happy 68th birthday to Doug Jarvis!
  • Finally, a cool moment on Women in Hockey night as Jenner Jensen, Nick Jensen’s better half, took her turn at the Top Shot Challenge - and killed it...
