If you haven’t heard, the Caps have gotten a new goaltending coach because Dave Prior stepped down for family reasons. They’ve hired Arturs Irbe. Oh, and speaking of goaltending, ex-Cap Brent Johnson was practicing at Kettler today. He was wearing his Pens practice jersey, but actually turned it inside out as to not show the logo. Johnny might have gone to the dark side, but he’s still a class act.
