    Not gonna lie, thought Connor McMichael would get the call up for the last game.

      Agreed. And I am very curious if the Caps plan is to add them (like legit shot to make) the team next season or if they plan to start Connor, Alexi and the the 2 defensemen…I guess we’ll really know based off of offseason moves. I love what Zdeno has added this year and hate to not bring him back, but if Caps do, what LD will they unload…????

    Hope the Caps send either Copley of Fucale back to Hershey for the weekend. The Bears literally have one goalie right now. I know there aren’t any Calder Cup Playoffs, but Hershey is trying to win a division. It isn’t a Calder Cup, but it still is something

      I’m fairly certain they will. He mentioned in post-practice presser that they need to consider Hershey’s final games when making call ups/roster moves this week.
