What You Need to Know

The Skins could set a record for fewest turnovers in a 16-game season, Gibbs repeatedly says he expects Big Al and Double G to be back and promises "nonstop" work in the offseason, Jason Campbell faces many ticket requests, Betts's decision to stay put was about security for both sides and here's a vote for some late-season experimentation.

The Caps "choked, hard-core" gakking up their biggest lead in at least 15 seasons in front of "great gaping rows of empty purple Verizon Center seats," and losing after the increasingly confident Pens turn their helmets into rally caps during another unsuccessful

Caps shootout. Mike Wise think last night rekindled the teams' rivalry, Kris Beech is playing "as well as he's ever played," Evgeni Malkin stole the show from Crosby and Ovie, Mike Vogel offers an in-depth look at Caps prospects, and the Caps might provide laptops for fans to cast all-star ballots.

The unranked Hoyas are still talking national championships, VMI gets 99 points in a win, Boom Osby tries to explain why fans love him, Crystal Langhorne's brother skips a Maryland game in favor of the Eagles, and the lawyer who sued Jimmy Williams drops the suit.

Kevin Payne says Freddy--who has "both benefited and been victimized" by his hype--is pleased to be off to Utah, and a smiling Freddy strongly agrees. It's hard not to think his old coach played a part in the deal; his new coach calls Freddy "pretty lethal," RSL fans ask if he's the next Urban Meyer, and a columnist calls it the biggest trade ever by a Utah pro team.

Etan and Brendan are banged up, leaving Cal Booth and James Lang in the middle, and Gil is named the Eastern Conference POW. Also, J.P. of "the Junkies" ends his boxing career.
