Before we get to the Caps’ 5-4 shootout win, here’s the Michael Nylander “update” …
RDS is reporting that Nylander to Minsk of the KHL is a done deal. I saw George McPhee after the game and here’s the exchange:
Me: “RDS says Nylander to Russia is a done deal. Is that true?” [NOTE: Bad job by me … Minsk is in Bealrus, but you get the point]
GMGM: “I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t know. When I know, I will let you know.”
A team official said about an hour later that there is still nothing to report on Nylander.
