Hershey vs WBS have a rivalry that predates Hershey becoming affiliated with the Capitals. It's pretty intense.

Like I needed more encouragement, but you've sold me on it now.

I was hoping I could watch Holtby play, I'm not sure if he'll get the start tomorrow against WBS, but I hope so.
Have fun!

Sounds like it's still possible it could be any of the 3: Holtby, Grubauer or Sabourin. Bears play 3 in 3; French has said if Grubauer is up all weekend, he'll get a start, but plenty of question marks about timing of Sabourin's return, etc. Assume Sabourin stays in Washington to back-up tomorrow and it will be one of Holtby or Grubauer partly dependent on how Holtby plays tonight. If you see Grubauer, you get to see his first pro start for a regular season game.

Hershey lost to WBS; Holtby played in the back to backs so possible Grubauer starts tonight against Syracuse .

Ryan Potulny injury update from Leone is that Potulny had surgery for double sports hernia.

check out the orlov BOMBS at 0:04 and 1:42, the first blowing by the goalie and particularly the 2nd which hits the goalie but has so much juice on it that it pops right off him and leads to an easy rebound goal

Hershey at Springfield 4-3 OTL Friday night and lost tonight 2-1 in Glens Falls to Adirondack.

Holtby lost his cool (twice) yesterday including a penalty for punching Atkinson and the Falcons scored the tying goal on that PP in the third period. The first time it was with MacLeod (attended Caps development camp summer of 2010) and they both got penalties. Bourque continued his point streak Friday night, but it ended tonight with the loss to the Phantoms. First game this season in which Bourque didn't have a point.

Sabourin was in goal tonight and played well from all reports. Orlov with the late goal with the pulled goalie to end the shutout bid, but Hershey lost 2-1.

ECHL

Grubauer started tonight for the Stingrays playing in Elmira, Machesney Friday night. Stingrays won both games; 5-2 and 5-3, respectively. Friday night's game was a penalty/misconduct fest for Elmira; didn't listen tonight, but a quieter game looking at the boxscore.

Grubauer now has 3 starts and 3 wins for the Stingrays, all on the road. Grubauer's stats

Bears beat Bingo 3-2 Sunday night. Two most interesting facts of the night: 1.) Josh Godfrey seems to be sticking with an AHL team (Bingo) finally. 2.) My fiancé's face can turn redder then her and Eakin's hair combined when she won his Breast Cancer Awareness jersey.

Orlov's epic! open ice hip check. Bears were on the PP and Orlov's stick snapped on a slapshot form the high slot leading to a Bingo SH try and Orlov being the only Bear able to get back. Starts at :26.

I think he still needs at least a 1/2 year in the AHL, but the video doesn't show the whole context of the situation which just makes it that more amazing.

Holtby is having a sub-par start. Sabo is showing him up big time so far. McNeill is being McNeill. Nothing really new, but still nice and steady. Sjogren has been fun to watch. Very smart player that uses his size well. He seems to have a slight mean streak to him I wasn't expecting. Orlov is walking that fine line of doing to much every game. Little bit more hard nose and better timing on putting on a one man show and he should be good to go.

If Sjogren's mean streak is slight, it's below the expectations fostered by at least the media before the season.

JoeyZStingrays: Grubauer stops all 26 @ToledoWalleye shots to pick up his first pro shutout. @SCStingrays win 1-0

Nice timing considering that Kolzig was in the house.

As you might know, Sjogren may or may not return to Sweden already this year. I doubt the news releases, but i want to ask you wether Sjogren has any chance of being called up to Capitals if injuries occur on that team?

I think of a fourth line or perhaps absolute maximum a third line. Which player in Hershey would be the first one being called up if let's say, the Capitals fourth line center becomes injured?

Has Sjogren any chance at all in the near term to be called up to the Capitals do you think? Thanks

There was a recent report somewhere that suggested he was told he was next in line, more or less (that info came from his agent IINM), and that that has prompted him to choose to stay.

Don't know how solid that info is though.
