TONIGHT is the night for the CAPS! Pittsburgh Penguins vs  Washington Capitals: Penguins and Capitals take it the distance. The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins will meet in a Game 7 for the fourth time and second time in the Sidney Crosby/Alex Ovechkin era. FLASHBACK: The first time Crosby and Ovechkin met in a Game 7 was May 13, 2009, a 6-2 Penguins victory at Washington’s Verizon Center. Crosby scored twice and had an assist, while Ovechkin scored as well. Each superstar had three shots in the game.  Oh, how the lineups have changed since then. Among the long departed who played that night: Bill Guerin, Mirolsav Satan and Hal Gill for the Penguins; Tom Poti, Viktor Kozlov and Sergei Fedorov for the Capitals. Only five Penguins players from that game remain with the team; Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Chris Kunitz and the injured Kris Letang. The Capitals have three remaining; Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Jay Beagle. Washington defenseman Brooks Orpik played for the Penguins that night.

Warrant issued for former Redskin Clinton Portis for failure to appear in court in Md. MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) — A warrant has been issued for former Redskins star Clinton Portis after he failed to show up in Montgomery County court on traffic charges Tuesday. Online Maryland state court records indicate Portis came in contact with a Montgomery County police officer around 9:12 p.m. on January 3. At the time, Portis was in downtown Bethesda at the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Woodmont Avenue. Court records say Portis was driving a Florida vehicle without a valid license or registration. The records indicate his Florida license was suspended after he failed to appear in court – the same thing he’s accused of doing in Montgomery County.
