Sammi’s Daily: Capitals Headlines, All-Star Rosters, Jersey News

The Capitals did everything right in a picture-perfect win on Thursday, the All-Star rosters are set, jersey news continues to brew and more in the daily.



The Washington Capitals kicked off their three-game road swing with a picture-perfect 4-0 win in the Desert, as they finally clicked on multiple levels and pulled out an impressive, critical victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

While that was happening, the NHL revealed the rest of the NHL All-Stars who will be headed to South Florida and also announced some ASG jersey news. There's also been more talk brewing regarding the Stadium Series sweaters.

Here are all the latest news and notes from D.C. and across the league:

Washington Capitals

– All the takeaways from the Capitals' nearly-flawless 4-0 win over the Coyotes. (WHN)

– Also, our new postcame column "Vibe Check," where we… well, check the vibes and also go over key stats and numbers to know from the "W," plus more on Tom Wilson and friends. (WHN)

– Anthony Mantha was a healthy scratch for the fourth time in six games as head coach Peter Laviolette ran the same lines as Tuesday — and here's why. (WHN)


– NHL commissioner Gary Bettman commented on Ivan Provorov's Pride Night boycott and does not want his decision to overshadow the league's initiatives. (WHN)

– No other Capitals will be at the 2023 NHL All-Star Game, as New York Islanders netminder Ilya Sorokin was one of three other Metro Division players voted in. (NYIHN)

– Here's everything to know about the 2023 NHL All-Star Weekend, including the new jerseys that released, local festivities and Fall-Out Boy. (FHN)

Top Shelf Takes

– We had the leak on the jerseys last week. Here's what the sweaters look like as they pay homage to the mid-90s and go "Reverse Retro." Seeing Alex Ovechkin in a throwback Eastern Conference with "Miami Vice" accents should be cool.

– Speaking of jerseys, the Stadium Series is now just over four weeks out. Clock is ticking on the jersey release, though there are potential Carolian Hurriacnes jersey leaks making their rounds on the Internet. From the looks of it, they're black jerseys with a red Hurricane logo on the chest. Icethetics confirmed the possible leak and did an in-depth video detailing the sweater.

– Darcy Kuemper's league-leading five shutouts are also the most ever among a Capitals goalie through their first 30 games in a season. His .920 save percentage ranks fifth in the league among goalies with at least 29 games played, and he continues to impress and come up big with his consistency. He and Charlie Lindgren were both two of the best signings this offseason, and Washington continues to reap the benefits from changing things up between the pipes.

– The "BMW" line has been outstanding and among the most dangerous units for the Capitals — we'll have a feature on them later today.
