Capitals G Vokoun not happy with role of backup

Washington Capitals goaltender Tomas Vokoun isn't thrilled with being reduced to a backup. After starting the season strong, Vokoun has been on the bench since Dec. 13 and seen Michal Neuvirth play the last five contests. "I can't really tell you. I don't know what I did wrong to be in this spot," Vokoun told the Washington Times. "I'm a professional...

World Juniors Special for Carlson, Alzner

For most of their professional careers, Capitals defensemen John Carlson and Karl Alzner have been attached at the hip.  Carlson, 21, and Alzner, 23, who were drafted two years apart, began their professional journeys with the Caps' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, developing alongside current Caps like Michal Neuvirth, Mathieu Perreault, and Jay Beagle...

What’s Wrong With The Capitals

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers some email rants… Please tell me what is wrong with the Washington Capitals, I just do not understand. They have such talented individuals in Ovechkin, Semin, Backstrom, and Green (when healthy), to name a few home-grown stars. While the usual production of these players is below par, save Backstrom, that cannot solely explain why the team is doing...

When Will Mike Green Play?

from the Washington Post, It’s unclear when (Mike) Green, who was not made available to comment for this story, will return from his latest setback, a strained right groin muscle that he suffered in mid-November. When Green’s recovery plateaued two weeks ago, the Capitals decided to take an experimental route with his rehabilitation, according to several people familiar with...

Capitals-Sabres Preview

Both the Washington Capitals and the Buffalo Sabres spent Christmas feeling dissatisfied about their seasons so far. Each team will have plenty to say about whether the other can begin to turn things around before the end of 2011. The frustrated clubs square off Monday night at Buffalo in the first of two meetings in a five-day span. The Sabres (16-15-3) haven't exactly played...

30 Thoughts Before The End Of The Year

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, • Is George McPhee ready to shake up his roster? Couple other teams say the Capitals are a club to watch. • Big win Monday night for Bruce Boudreau. Wonder though, if, with 20-20 hindsight, Boudreau would re-think his decision to return so quickly. Anaheim’s a much bigger rebuild job than any of us realized. You can see the frustration on the...

Capitals' road woes pinned on sluggish starts

NEWARK, N.J. — Outside the friendly confines of Verizon Center, the Washington Capitals know they need to be careful. In hockey, the home team gets the final line change and can set the matchups it wants and can often use that to great advantage. The Caps learned again on Friday ...

Good And Bad News On Mike Green

from Chuck Gormley of CSNWashington, The good news for disgruntled Caps fans is that Mike Green could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday night against the Buffalo Sabres. “I just need a few skates to get my lungs and my legs back and I’ll be back in no time,” Green said. The bad news is that the significant groin injury he suffered on Nov. 11 against the Devils could...

Caps pull a no-show in 4-2 loss to Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. — It started poorly: a penalty on Roman Hamrlik just nine seconds in. It got worse: a goal by Jason Pominville on the ensuing power play 42 seconds later. What happened after that almost defies words, as the Washington Capitals put on a listless, lethargic and lackluster performance ...

Rapid Rewind: Speared

The Washington Capitals were embarrassed, again, by the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night, falling 4-2 inside First Niagara Center.  Michal Neuvirth was pulled after half a period after allowing three goals, and Tomas Vokoun was solid in relief but by then the damage was already done.  Matt Hendricks and Alex Ovechkin made it look more respectable with goals well after the result...
