Way back in 1995 when I started fervently supporting the Washington Capitals, I got my news on the team from two sources: The Washington Post and The Washington Times. While the Post cycled through beat writers such as Rachel Alexander (who can now be seen on ESPN), Jason La Canfora, and Tarik El Bashir, you always knew what the byline would read on any Caps stories printed by the Times.

Despite Washington, D.C. setting a record high temperature of 102 degrees Saturday, it was a perfect day for hockey as over 40 players and over a hundred visitors gathered at Kettler Capitals Iceplex for the 4th Annual Dave Fay Memorial Game benefitting Hockey Fights Cancer. Former Caps Yvon Labre, Gord Lane, Paul Mulvey, Gary Rissling, and Alan Hangsleben joined players from across Maryland and Virginia to honor the long-time Washington Times hockey writer who passed away in 2007 after 12-year battle with cancer.
