Miss out on MCM registration? You can still sign up...

Want to run the 37th Marine Corps Marathon but unable to secure your bib in the ridiculously fast 2 hour and 41 minute sellout that occurred on registration day? Well you're in luck...

You still have two options to run in this year's race: sign up for the MCM Transfer Program or register as a MCM Charity Partner.

On Wednesday, June 20 unregistered runners will be able to sign up for the MCM Transfer Program, which will allow registered runners to transfer their 2012 MCM bibs to those on the list.

Registered participants will be able to transfer their entries to unregistered runners anytime between June 20 and August 31. After completing a transfer form, the registered participant will receive a unique code, link and password via email to send to the runner of their choice. Runners then registered through the MCM Transfer Program must pay a 30 transfer fee before September 7.

Want to connect with someone looking to transfer? Visit the MCM Facebook page or MCM Message Board.

Registered runners for the 2012 MCM will also be able to transfer from the full marathon to the MCM10K at no cost. Interested runners can do so now but must complete the process by September 7.

Want to run for a cause? Check out the MCM's Charity Partners and their MCM programs at www.marinemarathon.com. Many of them have entries available for those who want to help support their very worthy causes.

3 bold predictions: Can the Senators slow down the Caps' offense?

3 bold predictions: Can the Senators slow down the Caps' offense?

The Caps will look to extend their point streak on Tuesday as they take on the Ottawa Senators (7:30 p.m., CSN+). Here are three bold predictions for the game.

1. Both teams will combine for five goals or fewer

Translated for all you betting fans out there, take the under. Washington could easily score five by themselves these days, but Ottawa plays them tight. In their first two games, the Caps and Senators combined for only four goals. That’s not in October before Washington got hot, both of those games were played in January.

2. T.J. Oshie will score

Oshie has scored in each of the last four games and in five of his last six. He also scored the lone goal in Washington’s 1-0 win in Ottawa on Jan. 7. He will extend that streak to five straight games on Tuesday.

3. Washington will give up a power play goal

With Jay Beagle a late scratch due to illness, the Caps’ penalty kill may suffer as a result. They certainly won’t generate the offense we usually see and they lose the team’s best faceoff man.

2017 Results: With the back to back games, here’s a very abbreviated prediction recap from yesterday:

1. The Caps will give up at least four power plays - Correct
2. Carolina will score first - Correct
3. Marcus Johansson will score - Wrong

Correct: 11.5
Wrong: 23.5
Push: 0

Caps center Jay Beagle sidelined Tuesday, Chandler Stephenson to play

Caps center Jay Beagle sidelined Tuesday, Chandler Stephenson to play

Capitals center Jay Beagle has been scratched for Tuesday night's game against the Senators due to the flu, according to Coach Barry Trotz.

Beagle, who played in Monday’s 6-1 romp over the Hurricanes, will be replaced on the fourth line by prospect Chandler Stephenson as the Caps look to extend their 14-game point streak (12-0-2).

Trotz told reporters that Beagle got sick on the flight to Canada’s capital.

“The flu bug,” Trotz said. “It’s been going through every team. You just don’t know when it’s going to hit, and it hit last night on the flight here.”

Stephenson was recalled from minor league Hershey earlier in the day and joined the Caps in Ottawa. Washington had been carrying only 12 forwards, the minimum needed to ice four full lines.

It’ll mark the first game this season that Beagle has missed. The 31-year-old is in the midst of a career-year with 10 goals and 10 assists in 47 contests. He’s also the team’s top penalty killing forward as well as a faceoff specialist who is occasionally utilized in overtime.

Stephenson, meanwhile, will be making his season debut for Washington. The 22-year-old, who was selected in the third round of the 2012 draft, did not record a point in nine games with the Caps last season.

In addition to centering Daniel Winnik and Tom Wilson, Stephenson will also see some time on the NHL’s third-ranked penalty kill, Trotz said.

“It’ll be pretty seamless,” Trotz said. “Both Hershey and us pretty well play the same system, so I don’t think there will be much [new] for him.”

Stephenson has six goals and 18 assists in 39 games for the Bears this season. He was recalled by the Caps last week for the trip to Pittsburgh but did not suit up.
