    With the Los Angeles Kings leading the Washington Capitals by a score of 4-1 midway through the third period, frustration was beginning to mount for several of the Caps players.  Among those growing increasingly frustrated was Jason Chimera, who eventually reached his boiling point and decided to drop his gloves with Kings’ defenceman Willie Mitchell […]

    Hits to the head seem to be getting all of the attention in the NHL these days, as it almost feels like chief disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan has had a different case to review each day. Shanny may have another “head-shot” to review following last night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and the Washington Capitals.  However, […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Erskine — 12/1/11

    Over one month ago, Pittsburgh Penguins enforcer Arron Asham knocked out Jay Bealge of the Washington Capitals and proceeded to taunt him seconds after.  Asham apologized for his actions immediately after the game, but the Caps still had a score to settle with the hard-throwing middleweight. John Erskine decided to settle that score following a […]

    Trailing 4-3 with 1:27 remaining in last night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks, the Washington Capitals were in need of a game-tying goal.  In situations like this, Caps head coach Bruce Boudreau usually calls on Alex Ovechkin to work some of his magic, but to the surprise of anyone watching the game and Ovechkin himself, […]

    With all of the attention surrounding the issues of fighting, headshots and concussions in hockey these days, the last thing the NHL needed was what transpired in Pittsburgh last night during a game between the Penguins and the Washington Capitals.

    9 Best 3rd Jerseys In The NHL

    For NHL teams, third jerseys are huge cash cows. That’s because gullible hockey fans (like myself) will go out and buy the third jersey replicas the day they are released, even though they already own their teams’ “regular” jerseys. On top of that, historic franchises (like the Rangers or Maple Leafs) can change up these […]

    Entering their second round series against the Washington Capitals, the Tampa Bay Lightning would have been pleased to come away with a split in the first two games at the Verizon Center.  However, after winning Game 1 by a score of 4-2, the Lightning’s plans for the first two games quickly changed from split to […]

    Following a Game 3 loss to the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals’ head coach Bruce Boudreau said that the fans at Madison Square Garden weren’t very loud, claiming that the fans at the Verizon Center were much louder.

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/20/11 — Marcus Johansson

    For a moment it seemed like Déjà Vu all over again.  The Washington Capitals qualified for the playoffs as the top team in the Eastern Conference, but after taking a 2-0 series lead, they were only 20 minutes away from allowing the New York Rangers to get right back in the series with a Game […]

    John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks, Part ??? (Video)

    Most hockey fans will tell you that some of the greatest rivalries in the game include the Boston Bruins vs. the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings vs. the Chicago Blackhawks.  I would argue that we should add John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks to that list.

    Wake Up Kid!  Your Caps Won! Perhaps the only thing better than getting to attend to a playoff hockey game as a child and staying out way past your bedtime, is falling asleep at the game and being woken up immediately following a game-winning overtime goal by your team.

    Picture Of The Day: Washington Post WTF?

    Those who watched last night’s opening game of the first round series between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals know that the Caps won in overtime following a rocket of a one-timer off the stick of Caps forward Alexander Semin, in what was an otherwise fairly PG-rated game. As for those who got […]

    It appears as though the First Lady of the United States ditched her husband to hit up a bar for some drinks one night.  And while doing so, Michelle Obama just so happened to run into the second most popular man in Washington, D.C., Alex Ovechkin. I am not quite sure who approached who in […]
