Season Preview: Chris Clark
Captian Chris Clark will be back for his third season with the club, second as captain. Clark has spent most of the last two years on a scoring line with Alexander Ovechkin and Dainus Zubrus. With Zubrus gone and the Caps in posession of some new high-priced toys, Clark's role has changed to being on the third line, while Thomas Fleischmann gets a look on the top line with Ovechkin and Kozlov. Clark joins Matt Pettinger and Boyd Gordon on the third line, whose main goal will be shutting down opponents. For the last two years Clark has put up career numbers in goals. This year we will learn if it was because of Clark's natural skill, or because he had that numbe 8 guy playing across from him.
