POSTGAME NOTEBOOK - Caps 3, Blues 2

Caps win with late bounces, and kids, goalies and newcomers shine along the way

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Something Wild - In a regular season or playoff game, losing the way the St. Louis Blues lost on Wednesday night in Washington would be difficult to shake off. But the Blues' 3-2 loss to the Caps came in a meaningless preseason affair, and with their names freshly engraved on the Stanley Cup, with Cup rings coming their way in a matter of days and a Cup banner raising two weeks off on the horizon, the setback is less jarring than a sneeze.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Caps 4, Hawks 3 (OT)

Kids show well and Wilson shows leadership as Caps win preseason opener over Hawks

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

All The Young Dudes - Although it was seven-year NHL veteran Tom Wilson who supplied the overtime game-winner with a dazzling, highlight reel goal that spanned virtually the entire length of the rink, an impressive group of kids also had a lot to do with the Caps' 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night in Washington's preseason opener.

Protas, McMichael and other youngsters shine, Wilson scores game-winner as Caps down Hawks

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com
