This morning Tarik has word on Hanlon mixing up the lines to try to spark the Cap's offense. Clark is back to the first line with Ovie and Kozlov, and Dave Steckel takes his spot on the third line. So who steps into Steckel's spot? Career AHL'er Joe Motzko, who probably had one of the best nights of his NHL career on Saturday, playing on Ovie's line. Here is the always humble Clark on his promotion:
"I can't play any different because that will just get me in trouble," Clark said. "If I change anything, be more fancy, it's not going to work. Ovechkin and Kozlov have more than enough skill to bring me along."And, looks like Semin might be back...
"If we were winning, and things were going perfectly, we wouldn't rush him back if he was a little out of shape," Hanlon said of Semin. "With saying that, if he gets clearance from our trainers, he'll be in our lineup, even if it's just to play the power play for a couple of shifts"The Washington Times has a piece on the Caps blogosphere, and talks to the writers at some of my favorites, including a View from the Cheap Seats and On Frozen Blog.
