Pat Quinn would like to coach again in the NHL, but what are the chances that a team would give him another chance?
Oct 1, 2010, 11:50 PM EDT
Last season: (54-15-13, 121 points, 1st in Southeast Division, 1st in Eastern Conference) Capitals fans will cringe at this statement, but if one more season goes like the 2009-10 campaign did, those ‘San Jose Sharks East’ jokes will have a lot more validity. The team put together an astounding regular season, finishing nine points higher…

Are you ready for some uncensored, behind the scenes NHL action? You’d better be because cable network HBO is going to be jumping head-long into the league to produce a documentary series based around the Penguins and Capitals playing in the Winter Classic this winter. Seth Rorabaugh of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette breaks the news on…

A couple weeks ago, a report from the Ottawa Sun’s Don Brennan said that Anton Volchenkov will get the most interest this off-season from the Washington Capitals. A funny thing happened along the way and thanks to the Washington Post’s Tarik El-Bashir, we get the temperature taken on the Washington Capitals possible interest on the…

As much heat as Alex Ovechkin and Bruce Boudreau received (and will continue to catch) for the Washington Capitals’ stunning first round loss to the Montreal Canadiens, it’s quite possible that no one was under the French fry lamp quite like Mike Green. Much of that negative attention comes with a second consecutive Norris Trophy…

This is one of those games (and series) where you look for someone to blame. Was it as simple as “The Capitals couldn’t solve Jaroslav Halak?” Maybe you point to their “lack of experience” or question their intestinal fortitude? To be honest, I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that the world-beating Washington Capitals…

Another playoff night, another costly “Too Many Men on the Ice” penalty. There have been 18 so far this playoffs, according to TSN. Montreal Canadiens 2, Washington Capitals 1 Capitals lead series 3-2 This time, the Washington Capitals were confused while trying to pull Semyon Varlamov for an extra man and ended up taking the…

Jose Theodore lasted just 7:58 in the first period tonight against the Canadiens, after allowing two goals on the first two shots he faced. Bruce Boudreau, seeing his team outplaying the Habs but facing an early 2-0 deficit, turned to backup Semyon Varlamov to stop the bleeding. This was reminiscent of last season’s first round…

The Washington Capitals are fascinating. This is a team that dominated the NHL all season long, has the most exciting and perhaps the most talented player in hockey, and yet has maintained a sense all season long that they are being disrespected at every turn. Their “us against the world” mentality starts at the very…

Since the Pittsburgh Penguins clinched a playoff berth quite some time ago, it’s clear that tonight’s game won’t be the last meaningful hockey game ever played in crusty old Mellon Arena. Still, it’s obvious that the Igloo’s days are numbered. Tonight’s game against the New York Islanders marks the final regular season the Penguins will…

Whenever the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals play against each other, it feels like a mini-event. Tonight’s game might not have the same pizazz, spunk or crunchiness for the simple reason that it makes no difference to the Capitals … at least from a standings standpoint. Something tells me that the team can always clear out…
