  1. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Washington Capitals

    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.

    Comments Off on Sources say Capitals have no interest in Volchenkov

    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…

  4. Mike Green speaks about Capitals' Round 1 loss

    Comments Off on Mike Green speaks about Capitals' Round 1 loss

    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…

  5. Jaroslav Halak, Montreal shocks Washington in Game 7

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    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…

    Comments Off on Game 2: Theodore pulled, Habs lead 2-1

    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…

  8. Capitals coach fires back at the media

    Apr 15, 2010, 2:49 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Penguins to play last regular season game at Igloo

    Apr 8, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

  10. Penguins, Capitals still have plenty to play for

    Comments Off on Penguins, Capitals still have plenty to play for

    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…

    Comments Off on Armstrong suspension proves NHL system is flawed

    It’s becoming such the norm around the hockey universe that it’s become exceedingly tiresome to get involved in. Endless debates about whether a hit or play merits further discipline by the NHL has become the story of the 2009-10 NHL season, and the fact that these debates continuously rage proves that the current system is…

  12. Capitals fans need a reality check

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    It’s amazing what is happening in Washington. The Capitals and Alex Ovechkin have been able to turn the D.C. area into a thriving, intense and absolutely crazy hockey town. In fact, it’s generally considered that the Verizon Center is the most exciting place to watch a hockey game. The fans are loud and boisterous, and…

    Comments Off on Backstrom fuels Caps' stunning 4-3 comeback

    With his team down 3-0 and NHL scoring leader Alex Ovechkin gone after a controversial first period hit, Nicklas Backstrom picked a great time to take hold of the spotlight. The Swedish center was the catalyst of Chicago’s second consecutive third period collapse with two goals and one assist, including the overtime game winner. This…

  15. Should Capitals be worried after loss to Stars?

    Mar 8, 2010, 9:52 PM EDT

    The mighty aren’t invincible at home after all. Marty Turco’s career-high 49 saves propelled the Dallas Stars to an improbable 4-3 overtime victory against the Washington Capitals, at the place everyone believed they were unstoppable. And yet it happened, against a team that had their backs against the wall and were reeling after three straight…
