Who needs NFL playoffs? Here's some late-morning reading material:
*Caps win sixth in seven games by beating the Flyers, 5-3. (Tarik)
*Laich breaks out of his offensive slump with a three-point night. (Geno)
*Tom Heath reports that Ted Leonsis faces a Wednesday deadline (that basically isn't much of a deadline, so don't hold your breath) to buy the Wizards and Verizon Center from the Pollin family.
*From Saturday, here's Ted and the Capstronaut. (Steinz)
*This game had "the feel of a playoff contest." ( Washingtoncaps.com )
*A good "character win" for the Caps. ( Examiner )
*Jose Theodore shines again in net. ( CSNWashington.com )
*Ovie's dad talks Ovie. ( Alex Ovetjkin )
More to come from Tarik/Geno at practice in a bit.
