Late-Game Wilting: Surmising Its Causes and Cures

Bears Best Mini-Mullets in Blanking Fashion

It was a 5-0 Hershey whitewash over Wilkes-Barre Scranton at Giant Center early Sunday evening. Incredibly, Michal Neuvirth has stopped 123 of the 124 petite Pens’ shots he’s faced in his last four games at Giant Center.

I don’t know how much discomfort Lainger was in, but he managed to smile pretty much throughout the exchange. […]

Alzner Back in DC

The Washington Capitals have recalled Karl Alzner from the Hershey Bears today. With Tom Poti, Shaone Morrisonn, and Milan Jurcian all still day-to-day, Alzner may make his 09-10 season debut on the blueline tonight when the Caps host the Buffalo Sabres.
