Despite the best wishes of his team’s athletic training staff, Hall couldn’t stay in the locker room after he was hurt Sunday.

Such responsibilities may be a bit overwhelming for Burakovsky, but on Sunday, in the Capitals’ preseason opener, he seemed more than adept at handling them. He scored the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over Buffalo at Verizon Center, burying a wrister off a one-timer from Jason Chimera from the right faceoff circle 13:14 into the first period.

- The Washington Times

Sunday’s 37-34 Eagles win over the Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field was everything you would want in an NFC East rivalry game. Frustration, exhilaration, desperation, retribution, confrontations, altercations, ejections — all of it adding up to one of the more hard-fought games between these two division rivals in recent years.
