- The Washington Times - Saturday, October 27, 2001

POINT THE WAY HOME This was the Caps' ninth road game of the season and ninth in their last 10 games. Washington is the only team in the league to have played less than three home games (two), but their next two are at MCI Center. The plus side? The team does not have a road trip longer than two games until March 15, when it begins an eight-game excursion.


FIVE AND COUNTING Calle Johansson missed his fifth game of the season last night and fourth in a row with an injury that has yet to be officially identified by the team under its new policy. Johansson is not even listed as being among the ailing on the league's official weekly roster report despite the fact that he hasn't played since Oct. 19.

The defenseman did take part in the morning skate and the excruciating "body bag" skate for those not playing that follows the normal drills. That might be an indication he is getting closer to recovery from whatever sidelined him in the first place.


THAT FUNNY? The view from one Atlanta columnist taking a look at the weekend's NFL games: "The question is not whether the Baltimore Ravens will repeat as Super Bowl champions. The question is whether they can possibly be as funny as they were in losing to Cleveland last week."
