After getting shredded by Mike Milbury on NBC Sports Network between periods of the Washington Capitals-Philadelphia Flyers game, Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin responded to the criticism Milbury handed out.
Quite honestly, this is the best response Ovechkin could have had. Milbury had a short career as a head coach at Boston College, lasting only three months. But in his one-year stint as head coach for the Boston Bruins in the 1989-1990 season, he led them to the Stanley Cup finals.
Milbury’s real problems though came when he was General Manager of the New York Islanders. Most notably he traded Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen for Oleg Kvasha and Mark Parrish, drafted Rick DiPietro 1st overall in 2000 over Marian Gaborik and Dany Heatley, and then in 2001, he traded Zdeno Chara and the 2nd overall pick (Jason Spezza) for Alexei Yashin. Needless to say, there’s a reason he is on TV and not working in an NHL Front Office somewhere.

HE SHOOTS HE SCORES
Alex Ovechkin has been the subject of criticism for his sub-par season, and he finally responded to NBC analyst Mike Milbury.

I actually remember watching this live last weekend laughing that Mike Milbury was actually ripping Ovechkin. Funny thing is Ovechkin will continue doing it, he's a spoiled brat who is extremely gifted, but still acts like a little kid. I hope the Bruins stick it to the Caps tonight.
What are Caps fans supposed to think at this point?
Fresh off the team’s 4-3 comeback victory against Boston Tuesday, Karl Alzner stood in the locker room, patiently trying to help me make sense of the Gordian knot that is Washington’s season.
During a recent radio interview Alzner gave to LaVar and Dukes at 106.7 the Fan, I remembered hearing the Capitals’ defenseman say...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- What a way to start: four goals in eight shots.
John Erskine, Wojtek Wolski, John Carlson and Mike Ribeiro all scored before the game was 8 minutes old, and the Washington Capitals climbed out of a tie for last in the Eastern Conference by beating the Florida Panthers 7-1 Thursday night.
Florida's Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on two shots and was pulled...
So where was this Capitals team for the first month of the season? Two goals in the first 3:10, which chased Panthers’ starting netminder Jacob Markstrom. Then two more on Scott Clemmenson to make it four goals on their first eight shots. Three points each for Alex Ovechkin, Mike Ribiero, and Wojtek Wolski; two points for Steve Oleksy in just his second game; plus ratings handed...
Alexander Ovechkin has been quiet from a goal-scoring standpoint this season, but he hasn’t stopped there. No, the Capitals forward has also extended that radio silence of sorts to the Internet, where his Twitter account has laid dormant for quite some time.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette picked through Ovi’s online leftovers and found what looks like it should be a lot of fun...
Roman Hamrlik didn't have a very memorable stint with the Washington Capitals. Except this.
It took some time, but the Washington Capitals appear to have finally hit their stride.
Coming off their highest-scoring game of the year, the visiting Capitals look for a season-high fourth straight victory Saturday against a New York Islanders team hoping to bounce back from a heartbreaking defeat to its archrival.
Washington (10-11-1) scored four goals on its first eight shots...
Score is best!!)))aha. (My San Antonio)
The Washington Capitals utterly humiliated the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, dominating them by a 7-1 to win their third consecutive game. Getting goals from seven different players: John Erskine, Wojtek Wolski, Alex Ovechkin, Eric Fehr, Mathieu Perreault, John Carlson, and Mike Ribeiro, as well as 29 saves from Braden...
Losing sucks but everyone likes a good scrap.
After taking a couple good shots early in the fight Thornton was able to shed the elbow pad and deliver a devastating right that put John Erskine on his ass.
NYR claim Roman Hamrlik from WSH and NJD claim Tom Kotsopoulos from PIT.
