Capitals Notes: (From the Capitals Insider)

  • Tom Poti and John Erskine were, to put it delicately, not so good in Philly. And Coach Bruce Boudreau says only one of the pair (or never-again pair, as the case may be) is willing to admit as much.(Washington Times)
  • Caps' top line is pretty good. (Express, - PDF, p. 16)
  • 8-19-28 the best Caps line EVER?!?! Who knows, but it's probably not the worst. (On Frozen Blog)
