There haven't been any recent updates but he was thought to be alright after the game.

Weiss might not play for the Cats.

per vogel "Notes: The Capitals posted a 3-10-2 record in the month of November despite outshooting their opponents in 12 of the 15 games"
Big Ouch

Caps out shoot the cats 35-23 and win the game 5-2. It time some pucks start going in the net for us!

Hopefully, starting Johnson shakes up the team, Caps 4-3. Caps top line gets 6 points.

With him this season, you need to me more specific about what you mean by "good".

The Caps stink against the Panthers. They don't win when they play well. So, the combination doesn't excite me. Johnson playing doesn't excite me either. Maybe he can come up with a big game.

Back to backs, lost 3 in a row. Don't play well against this team anyway. 3-1 Panthers is what I think is most likely.

I sort of feel like as long as the goals against remain improved and they stay in games that this lack of scoring and losing will stop at somepoint and it will go the other way. When that happens? I would expect it to be against a team they terrorize as a rule. Not the Panthers.

Our top line had two nice plays that led to goals at even strength last game - I don't remember the last time that I saw our top line do that. If we can get a top line finally established, it will provide the foundation for the rest of the offense. Our top line has been a joke for about 4 years now but think this may be the one.

Anybody able to watch the game? I have DirecTV, and the CSN+ channel (669) is blank.

Lovely.

Fleischmann could have walked to the crease there and looked to pass the whole way and forced it.

I was going to say the same thing. The defenseman moved out of this way even.

I think his nice low accurate shot is one of the more consistent parts of his game. That was a soft goal.

I know you saw that Pothier pinched in there and should not have. Laich had to hustle back to avoid the 2 on 1.

i don't remember who addressed this in last nights thread (might have been Devil Dancer, might have been TVF i'm not sure) but Kolbe just said that during the long layoff this week Boudreau is going to start "implimenting his system and talking to players 1 on 1 to get everyone on the same page."
