Mike Milbury trashes Alex Ovechkin's play against Flyers (Video)

NBC Sports Network NHL analyst Mike Milbury completely trashed Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin for his lack of effort during Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. During the second intermission, Milbury said that Oveckin "should be ashamed of himself" for his "awful display of hockey" during the first two periods. Among the lowlights...

Capitals Stagnant, but Braden Holtby is Showing Promise

A couple weeks ago the Washington Capitals sat in last place in an underperforming Southeast Division, sitting six points behind the division leader.  Not much has changed since.  The only difference: they have gained minimal ground on the division leader, sitting just four points back.  The Southeast Division continues to underperform.  The Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning...

Mike Milbury slams Ovechkin, tells him to "act like a man"

Mike Milbury ripping on Alex Ovechkin isn't exactly a new thing. The NBC commentator seems to love calling out Ovechkin whenever he's given the opportunity. The second intermission between Washington and Philadelphia was no exception, as Milbury went on quite the rant about the struggling star. Maybe aside from the unnecessary "act like a man" comment,...

Ovechkin Is A Big Stupid Baby

It’s no secret that Alex Ovechkin’s effort and output this season have been hit-or-miss. But to say he’s a “disgusting” “baby” with “no fight” who should be “embarrassed” might be going a bit far. That didn’t stop NBC’s Mike Milbury during intermission in last night’s loss:

Mike Milbury Rips Alex Ovechkin: “He Should Be Ashamed Of Himself”

As any hockey fan should know, Mike Milbury is certainly not one to keep his opinions to himself. He’s made Tommy Salo cry, beaten up a fan with a shoe, allegedly assaulted a 12-year old, and once even referred the entire country of Russia as “Eurotrash.” His latest target was Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, who according to Milbury “should be ashamed of himself...

Harry Zolnierczyk knee on Mathieu Perreault

From the replay, it does look like the Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk catches Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault with a "dirty" knee check, just like Taylor Hall hit Cal Clutterbuck. It's a bit of a different angle so it's not as cut an dry in my opinion. If I was a betting man, and I am, I think a suspension is coming for Zolnierczyk I would imagine that ...

Mike Milbury calls out Ovie

Alex Ovechkin makes $9,538,462 a year to play hockey for the Washington Capitals and I think Mike Milbury is right to call him out on National television, he played like a bag of ass tonight. If I was the owner of the Washington Capitals I would be upset. If I was a team mate of Ovechkin I would be upset.

Cam Ward reaches for save on Joel Ward

On Tuesday night the Carolina Hurricanes came to town to take on the Washington Capitals.  With the Capitals up 2-0 and a threat of the game getting out of hand, Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward came up with a huge stop that deserves to be considered a candidate for save of the year.  Joel Ward had 3/4 of the net empty after Cam kicked out this rebound, and Cam magically got a piece...

Cam Ward Robs Joel Ward In Potential Save Of The Year

The Washington Capitals are currently sitting near the very bottom of the Eastern Conference, one spot behind the last place Buffalo Sabres. In Tuesday night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Caps came out looking better than they have all season and threw 31 shots at Cam Ward through two periods.  Somehow, only two of those shots managed to get by Ward who stood on...

General Martin E. Dempsey Attends Caps Game

It appears that Matt Hendricks is being repaid with support for his work with the USO during the lockout. General Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, attended the game to watch Hendricks and the Caps win, 3-0.

Carolina Hurricanes at Washington Capitals 7 p.m, Verizon Center TV: FS-Carolinas, CSN-Washington The big storyline going into tonight will be that it is Alexander Semin's first game at Washington since signing with the Carolina Hurricanes.
