It’s becoming almost ritual to write this sort of column, but are the Caps problems ones they should be concerned about for the long run?

The Caps closed out their western Canada swing losing their last two games. Now they’re back home looking to get it all figured out against a less-than happy Ducks team.

Caps goalie suffers injury setback at practice, Tomas Vokoun likely to start tomorrow.
Oct 15, 2011, 10:07 AM EST
The Capitals decision to call up Dany Sabourin probably means that Michal Neuvirth isn’t ready to backup Tomas Vokoun.
Oct 13, 2011, 12:18 PM EST
With Michal Neuvirth injured, the Capitals re-called Braden Holtby. One would assume that Holtby will back up Tomas Vokoun, but you never know with Bruce Boudreau …
Oct 13, 2011, 10:30 AM EST
Bruce Boudreau has been making some surprising decisions and comments lately, but it seems like he’s been at least partially right with all of them. Where do you stand on the Capitals coach, though? Is he heading in the right direction or hurtling toward unemployment?
Oct 10, 2011, 11:52 PM EST
Tomas Vokoun didn’t sugarcoat his lousy debut with the Capitals, saying that his teammates “literally won tonight without goaltending.”
Oct 10, 2011, 8:30 AM EST
Bruce Boudreau is trying to win a Stanley Cup in Washington without much drama. His choice to start Michal Neuvirth over Tomas Vokoun opening night threw a wrench in that plan.
Oct 9, 2011, 1:52 PM EST
Tomas Vokoun will make his Capitals regular season debut on Monday. Can people calm down about a goalie controversy yet?
Oct 8, 2011, 12:00 PM EST
Bruce Boudreau’s decision to start Michal Neuvirth in the team’s season opener over Tomas Vokoun isn’t giving Vokoun happy thoughts.
Oct 7, 2011, 12:14 PM EST
In a surprising move that will cause many to overreact, the Capitals will start Michal Neuvirth in their first game of the season instead of Tomas Vokoun.
Oct 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EST
Can the Capitals finally get over the hump in a pivotal 2011-12 season? It’s hard to say no after they added a legitimate top goalie in Tomas Vokoun.
Sep 7, 2011, 8:00 AM EST
Some might view Tomas Vokoun’s comments as bulletin board material for the Red Wings, but the biggest factors point to the fact that Washington just made more sense for the underrated goalie.
Aug 25, 2011, 2:36 PM EST
Michal Neuvirth says he wants to challenge new guy and childhood hero Tomas Vokoun for the #1 job in goal. That’s cute.
Aug 4, 2011, 7:42 PM EST
So why did former NHL goalie Arturs Irbe leave his position as goalie coach of the Capitals? It’s a reason a lot of regular folks can identify with.
Aug 2, 2011, 7:45 PM EST
Despite watching Caps GM George McPhee sign an outsider to take the #1 goaltending spot, Michal Neuvirth is saying all the right things as he prepares for next season.
Jul 12, 2011, 12:15 PM EST
As it turns out, the Capitals weren’t the only team in the running for Tomas Vokoun. A translated report indicates that the Red Wings had some interest, too. This post explains why Washington won the Vokoun derby.
Jul 11, 2011, 4:25 PM EST
If you thought the Capitals signed Tomas Vokoun to look pretty on the bench while Michal Neuvirth started games, you might be disappointed to know that Bruce Boudreau believes Vokoun is their #1 guy.
Jul 2, 2011, 8:01 PM EST
We can say the Capitals are officially strong contenders for the Stanley Cup now that they’ve locked up Tomas Vokoun to be their goalie next season at a discount price.
Jun 29, 2011, 5:23 PM EST
Restricted free agent to-be Semyon Varlamov won’t be waiting around for the Capitals to make him an offer as he’s headed to the KHL to free up the Caps three-way goalie jumble.
Jun 26, 2011, 4:27 PM EST
Things could change, but rumors indicate that pending restricted free agent Semyon Varlamov is unlikely to re-sign with the Washington Capitals.
Jun 21, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
Semyon Varlamov has told the Capitals that he’d like to stay in the NHL and sign an extension. The problem is that he’s not willing to take a huge pay cut from the KHL; and SKA St. Petersburg would reportedly offer approximately $4 million.
Jun 16, 2011, 11:31 AM EST
The Washington Capitals announced that former goalie great Olie Kolzig will mentor new goalies as the team’s associate goalie coach.
