  • Carey Price’s Bad Day At The Office

    Carey Price’s Bad Day At The Office

    After back-to-back disappointing performances from starting goalie Jaroslav Halak, the Montreal Canadiens turned to back-up Carey Price in an attempt to salvage their hopes of an upset over the top-seeded Washington Capitals.  After a strong start to his NHL career, Price has fallen on hard times and has been targeted by the Montreal media for […]

    Alex Ovechkin Sprays A Kid With Snow (Video)

    If Alex Ovechkin was not already public enemy number one in Montreal, he most likely is now.  His two goals and one assist during last night’s 6-3 victory over the Habs may have a little something to do with that, but it was his actions prior to the game that will likely cause an even […]

  • Capitals Alexander Semin Shootout Fail (Video)

    Capitals Alexander Semin Shootout Fail (Video)

    You have your highlight reel shootout goals and your lowlight reel shootout attempts.  A penalty shot (or shootout attempt) is not quite the equivalent to a wide open layup/dunk attempt in basketball, because you have to actually get it past someone, but failing to execute your move and blundering could result in the same type […]

    Alex Ovechkin’s Skate Blades Are On Fire

    There should be no questioning Alex Ovechkin’s pride for his home country, Russia.  After all, the Washington Capitals’ sniper has made it clear to the world that he intends to leave the NHL, if need be, in order to play at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. When Ovi took to the ice with […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/11/10 – Alexander Semin

    The Washington Capitals may finally be falling back to Earth after losing two consecutive games, but they certainly have not forgot how to put the puck in the net. Their current average of 3.93 goals per game is tops in the league, 0.7 more than the next best team.  After going through their first 58 […]

    What Was This Fan Trying To tell Jordan Staal?

    There may be a glass separating spectators from players, but that has not stopped hockey fans from engaging in a war of words with players from the visiting team.  However, the need for hand signals and sign language at times can cause some confusion as to what these fans are actually trying to say. The […]

    Ovechkin Hit Sends Hal Gill And The Puck Into The Net

    We’ve seen Alex Ovechkin score goals the pretty way, but it is no secret that the Caps sniper is capable of doing things the hard way as well.  Last night, with his team down by two goals late in the second period, Ovi’s grittier side would once again shine bright at the Bell Center in […]

    Isles Jack Hillen Takes An Ovechkin Shot To The Face (Video)

    It looks like no one is safe at a Washington Capitals game these days.  Not the fans, and definitely not the players on the ice. As for the latest victim, that would be New York Islanders defenseman Jack Hillen, who took a puck square in the mouth from none other than Alex Ovechkin.  Talk about […]

    Attending a baseball game or a hockey game can be pretty dangerous sometimes.  At baseball games there’s always the risk of baseballs hit into the crowd at triple digit speed, catching a fan off guard.  Similarly, in hockey there’s always the chance of a puck making its way over the boards and into the crowd. […]

    Daniel Carcillo One-Punch KO’s Matt Bradley (Video)

    It can be intimidating facing the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wachovia Center.  They have seemingly reincarnated the “Broad Street Bullies” mentality with the likes of Ian Laperriere, Riley Cote, and Dan Carcillo patrolling things on the ice for them.  On Saturday night, it was the latter of the three who was looking to send a […]
