The Washington Capitals are disappointing again, and fans are none too pleased. Coming off a 2011 season which saw the Capitals finish with the most points in the Eastern Conference, last season’s 7th place finish and second round exit represented multiple steps in the wrong direction.

Written by Clifford Santa Monica, Alex Ovechkin’s most favorable pairing, in my opinion, is with Niklas Backstrom–the center he did so well with during the lockout when the two of them played for the same team (on the same line) in the Swedish Elite league. The two of them make each other better. But Adam Oates, for reasons that mystify me, would rather have the two of them...

In Braden Holtby’s world, perfect scores do not always equal perfect goaltending.
By the time Holtby spoke to the media moments after his team’s 5-0 win over the Florida Panthers Saturday, the goaltender had already analyzed what he needed to work on. He felt it was his worst game all season playing the puck—even though he had a highlight-reel up-ice pass that earned him an...
In the first fight of the season that didn't involve middleweight Matt Hendricks, heavyweight John Erskine squared up with ultra-heavyweight George Parros in the Caps' 5-0 win against the Panthers.The post Battle of the Heavies: Erskine vs. Parros appeared first on Capitals Outsider.
