Welcome to our production meeting post. This is your behind-the-curtain look at our TV broadcasts here on Caps Talk before Caps games. This information comes to you directly from our game producers, who often spend several days creating the material necessary for a single game telecast. Here are a few things for you to look for tonight (starting at 6:30) on our coverage of Caps-Stars on Comcast SportsNet-HD:
What's the deal with Alex Semin's slow start? He has just two goals through 12 games. Craig Laughlin explores the reasons.
On the other hand, Nicklas Backstrom is off to a smokin' hot start. So it's only fitting he'll be interviewed ice-side by Smokin' Al Koken.
The Caps are about to enter a grueling stretch of nine games -- five on the road -- in 15 days starting Friday. We break down the schedule.
