Caps-Flyers Preseason Scouting Notes
Michael Raffl - 6-1, 192 - LW - When this shifty player gets the puck he tries to create. Caps tried to tie him up along the wall but that worked only a few times. He’s always around the net looking to make a play, shoot or deflect a puck. He’s a solid passer and can make good passes with players leaning on him. His smooth skating helps him gain the offensive zone quickly.

It has been a long time coming, residents of Stirling-Rawdon were able to pick up tickets for their hotly-anticipated reward of an NHL exhibition game after the community won the Kraft Hockeyville contest in 2012. No word if it's a sellout just yet.

The Detroit Red Wings won their Game 7 matchup? Why? Well my answer on WLIE yesterday was Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen for starters. They’ve been there. Even Justin Abdelkader who scored the game winner was a “black ace” when the Wings last won their Cup in ‘08-09. He got that experience watching from the sidelines, practicing and traveling with the team, talking to the players and coaches, at least that’s what he told me while his teammates were hoisting the Cup.

Philadelphia -- The Washington Capitals came into town off a pretty impressive victory over the Carolina Hurricanes last night. On this night they played on fumes. They looked disjointed and they were never really in the game. They were dominated. But sometimes in a horrific effort this is a bright spot and they did have one. Goaltender Philipp Grubauer made his NHL debut.

At 6-4 this big winger suits up for the Plymouth Whalers and has a physical side to his game that might set him apart from many of the other prospects in the 2012 NHL Draft. It might even make him a first-round pick.
In his second year he had moderate offensive numbers but when the playoffs hit he turned it on averaging a point-per-game with almost as many goals (7) as he had in the regular season (9).
