The Caps must work on their special teams, especially if they are planning on taking a few penalties (I guess the infractions are rubbing off on other Washington area Sports teams that start with the letter “R” and end with “edskins”). It’s not only their penalty kill that needs help, their power play needs to start scoring some points after the Devils killed all 8 of their penalties in the previous preseason game.
Richard Zednik looks to get some more ice time. Let’s hope that more ice time can turn in to offensive production, even though Zednik often looks out of position. Wash Post goes into details about the forwards return to D.C.
Around the NHL
- Detroit Red Wings couldn’t let Steve Yzerman just leave. Even in retirement, he is too valuable. The Wings made him Vice President.
- Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin won’t have surgery, but will be sitting out 4 to 6 weeks with a dislocated shoulder. Malkin will miss the season opener.
- Brett Hull’s 16 will be raised to the rafters in St. Louis. Hull basically holds every offensive franchise record with the club, so it only makes sense for this to happen in Blues country.
Enjoy the game.
