Todd Reirden spoke to the media on Monday. The Capitals head coach talked about the precautions his family has taken due to his son’s immune system disorder as well as what he’s doing to relate with his players during the coronavirus pandemic.
Reirden also shared is thoughts behind how he’d like the 2019-20 season resume if it is at all possible. Alex Ovechkin recently shared that he’d like the playoffs to start immediately even if it’d deny him the opportunity to reach 50 goals again.

It’s been several weeks since we were all forced to stay at home due to the coronavirus outbreak. Since then, I’ve learned that I need new challenges to stay both happy and sane. For instance, there is just so much CNN, Netflix, Disney Plus, and hockey blogging my brain can absorb before my eyes get weary and I start getting this rotting feeling in my skull.
Desperately in need of a new activity, I have turned to stadium models. I’m not sure if this will entertain or infuriate me, but I’m all in.
When you take a look at the details of these things, you’re probably going to want one too.
Washington Capitals head coach Todd Reirden held a conference call with reporters Monday morning. It marked the first time he’s spoken to the media since the coronavirus outbreak suspended the NHL’s 2019-20 season.
Reirden said during the call that he’s sheltering in place with his wife Shelby and his 17-year-old son Travis, who has an immune system disorder. “We’ve had to be careful about what we bring into the house” to keep him safe, Reirden said.
But all that extra time at home has meant more TV time and the Reirdens have watched some eclectic programming.

With the NHL suspended due to the coronavirus, former Capitals defenseman Mike Green has been more active on social media lately.
Last week, Green shared what his favorite tattoos are.
Green first entered the league in 2005 as a chubby-cheeked, slick-skating rearguard that had no noticeable tattoos. Now, Greener has a full sleeve on his left arm and several tattoos on his right.
