Found October 23, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
The Washington Capitals are now the last remaining undefeated team thanks to a 7-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  For the second consecutive game the Capitals have gone up against a playoff-favorite and responded by putting up a combined 12 goals and only conceding 3.  While it has to be said that Detroit did have to play the night prior and then travel to Washington, it should not take anything away from this victory.

Pistons Jonas Jerebko takes the ice at the Red WIngs practice

Growing up in Sweden, if Jonas Jerebko was going to play any sport professionally, it was more than likely going to be hockey. But when you grow up to be 6'10" 235 pounds and you're not named Zdeno Chara, your career path won't lead you to the ice rink. Jerebko had the opportunity to show off his skating ability when he recently practiced with the Red Wings ...

Two Perfect Teams Meet Tonight- Detroit Visits Washington

from Kevin Allen of USA Today, What the game means: Because it’s October, there’s probably not much big picture impact. But the game is meaningful to the Capitals from the standpoint of measuring themselves against a traditional powerhouse. They have made enough changes in the offseason and probably can’t be sure who they are quite yet. A 7-0 start, including a victory against...

Wings Perfect Through First Five

The Detroit Red Wings are on a mission.  After being eliminated by the San Jose Sharks last year in the playoffs, the Wings have an apparent chip on their shoulder coming into this season as they are off to a 5-0 start.  They were in no mood to show any mercy Friday night as they handily beat the Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-2. The Wings were definitely rested coming into this game...

No Matter How You Look At It, An Impressive Win By The Caps

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider, While nothing changes the fact that the Red Wings are indeed a talented, well-coached team, don’t believe the talk from the Capitals that they got lucky to hand Detroit a 7-1 thrashing Saturday night — at least, not completely. Washington benefited from the schedule-makers, of course, considering that the Red Wings were playing in the...

Game 7: STL @ PHI

The last time the Flyers took the ice for a game, the Washington Capitals brought them back down to earth. Still sitting rather pretty with a 4-1-1 record, it’s time for this bunch to sing the sweet song of redemption at the expense of a rather gullible opponent. Continue reading "Game 7: STL @ PHI"

Will Seven-Year Itch Doom Babcock, Red Wings?

It’s hockey season in Detroit again. Time to put up with another 82-game grind. In our self-ascribed “Hockeytown,” it’s considered par, not impolite, to look past the months of October through March so that we can worry about playoff match-ups.The 82-game regular season is something we tolerate. It’s a longer opening act than a bad comedian.We actually had to pay attention...

Filpp a Coin

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) AP Valterri Filppula was arguably the Detroit Red Wings best player last night in their 5-2 victory over the winless Columbus Blue Jackets at Joe Louis Arena. The 27-year-old contributed a goal, although one of the empty net variety, and three assists in 14:02 minutes of ice time. Filppula has long been the next up-and-coming top-six forward for Detroit...
