The Washington Capitals have made several moves in preparation for tonight's game against the Boston Bruins, and some changes to the lineup might be in order tonight.
-The Washington Capitals have signed D Steve Oleksy (not Olesky) of the AHL Hershey Bears to a 3-year deal worth $1.6 million and recalled him to Washington. According to Adam Oates, the right-handed defenseman, who leads the Bears in fights and penalty minutes, is definitely not going to fight tonight in his NHL debut against the Big Bad Bruins Oates says "he helps us with the balance" on defense. He will skate on the third pairing with Tom Poti, meaning left-handed Jeff Schultz, he of just one NHL fight, will be sitting out.
-Goalie Braden Holtby refuses to name the dirty players on the Bruins, instead calls the entire team dirty. He will be in net tonight behind defenseman Steve Oleksy, who he says will keep those cheap-shotting Bruins honest.
-In other news, the Bruins insist they are ...
BEST OF MAXIM
We've featured Washington Capitals play by play man John Walton a couple times before for his excitable calls from the booth. Last night was no different as Walton exploded for Eric Fehr's game winer against the Bruins for a 4-3 victory in overtime, completing a comeback from 3-0 down after the first period.
If you hear an awesome local radio or TV call you think...
Claude Julien said Sunday night that he had no problem with Zdeno Chara‘s fight, even if it may have cost the team a win. He stood by those sentiments on Monday as well.
The Bruins coach addressed the media following practice in Wilmington, and he continued to support Chara, who took 17 penalty minutes after fighting Alexei Emelin in the second period of Boston’s 4-3 loss to...
You might recall that Mike Milbury recently unleashed a verbal assault on Alex Ovechkin, telling him to act like a man and start trying harder out on the ice. Milbury's assault might have had a few elements of truth, but overall it was yet another unnecessary attack on Ovechkin by the NBC analyst.
It took some time, but Ovechkin finally responded to the criticisms. His response...
The Bruins’ offensive attack went cold in the final two periods of Tuesday night’s overtime loss to the Capitals, but the B’s lit the lamp on three occasions in the first.
A pair of those goals came off the sticks of the Boston blueliners, with rookie Dougie Hamilton scoring on a rocket from the top of the zone and Zdeno Chara exploiting a seam in the Washington defense to...
Watch this hit by Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin hit on Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly. The Bruins score on the ensuing power play with a goal by Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton. Even as a Bruins fan, I have to admit that was a bad call against Ovechkin.
Updates. The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury.
New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, one day after Staal was struck in the eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over Philadelphia.
The Bruins finally get another shot at the Washington Capitals. The last time the two teams played Tim Thomas was in net and Joel Ward got a game winning goal in OT.
Almost like a bad dream from long ago.
So far this season the Capitals are 8-11-1 and are having a dissapointing season after upsetting the Bruins in the playoffs. Part of the Capitals dissapoitninis the continue...
A 2-9 start is not what is expected from an Alexander Ovechkin-led squad, but that’s how the Capitals began the 2013 season. The Caps have turned it on of late, though, picking up their fourth win in five games with a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in overtime Tuesday night. The B’s took an early 3-0 lead at the Verizon Center but could not hold on, dropping their second a row...
With growing confidence, the Washington Capitals are playing some of their best hockey of the season.
Their current surge began against the Florida Panthers, and the Capitals can continue it by beating them yet again Thursday night and recording a seventh straight home victory in the series.
Though Washington (9-11-1) and Florida (7-11-5) are tied for last in the Eastern Conference...
12 p.m. ET: The Bruins had high hopes for the 2011-12 season after winning the Stanley Cup a season prior. Those high hopes were shot down early in last season’s playoffs, however, thanks to the Washington Captials.
The B’s get their first chance to exact a little bit of revenge on Tuesday night when they had to the nation’s capital to take on the Caps.
It’s the first meeting...
Montreal celebrates a goal during their victory last night
The Boston Bruins lost 4-3 to Montreal
last night at the Garden and only have themselves to blame.
After the game Coach called out the Canadiens for diving and
embellishing penalties and basically blamed the loss on that. He went on the
