  1. Jaroslav Halak, Montreal shocks Washington in Game 7

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EST

    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…

    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…

  4. Capitals coach fires back at the media

    Apr 15, 2010, 2:49 PM EST

    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…

  5. Penguins to play last regular season game at Igloo

    Apr 8, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    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…

    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…

  8. Capitals fans need a reality check

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    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…

    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…
