By mdome at Classic Rock

Thrashed In Atlanta
Washington Capitals Vs Atlanta Thrashers Road Game Review
By Joe Beninati (Capitals Play-by-Play) at CSN - Washington, DC

Kent met the Stones, Mottram first encountered Priest on a 1974 day in Harlow, Essex. In this clip you will hear Tony talk us through his professional history...

Loose Change
Buffalo Sabres Vs Washington Capitals Home Game Review
By Joe Beninati (Capitals Play-by-Play) at CSN - Washington, DC

...Whenever the Caps play the Sabres, it's a case study for which team can remain the most patient. Buffalo plays a deliberate style, which can frustrate a free-flowing team like Washington. The first period was full of whistles. The Caps did a nice job of avoiding trying to create something that wasn't there. They didn't overextend themselves...

By Brian Lumley at Rumblings from the Man Cave I’m flipping through Cleveland radio and I hit Mixmas, the Carpenters’ version of “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” started pouring out of my factory speakers.

Instinctively, I started to flip the channel to something a little less annoying, like Rush Limbaugh or an unused frequency where loud, grating white noise would fill the inside of my car...

John Erskine: Mr. Movember
By Becca H at Japers' Rink

When John Erskine fired the eventual game-winner past Ondrej Pavelec last night, he not only capped off an incredibly impressive night for himself but also continued what has been a solid stretch of games overall for the big defenseman.
