The Washington Capitals are now on the verge of being eliminated after taking 2-0 and 3-2 series leads. While this may sound like a familiar refrain to tortured fans of this team for the last 20 years, these aren't your daddy's Capitals, and they didn't play as poorly as the score indicated in Games 4 and 6 of this series. The Caps were whistled for 5 penalties in their Game 6 loss, while the officia...

With his team down 3-0 going into the third period, you have to assume Adam Oates had his troops fired with an inspirational pep talk during the second intermission.
However, with the Capitals likely spitting nails and farting lightning bolts to begin the period, it was Ryan Callahan just 13 seconds into the final frame, who made sure there would be no Maple Leaf like collapse...

The family of the Derek Boogaard filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the National Hockey League.
It contends that the N.H.L. is responsible for the physical trauma and brain damage that Boogaard sustained during six seasons as one of the league’s top enforcers, and for the addiction to prescription painkillers that marked his...

Cue Gun’s & Roses “They’re Out To Get Me”; at least that’s what Washington Capitals star winger Alex Ovechkin thinks after the team blew a 2-0 series lead only to lose in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. According to ESPN...
On the two-year anniversay of his passing, the family of the late Derek Boogaard have filed a wrongful-death suit against the NHL. In the complaint, the family argues the NHL is responsible for the physical trauma and brain damage Boogaard suffered during his six NHL seasons and his addiction to pain killers.
Williams Gibbs, attorney for the Boogaard family, has this to say when...

New York contained Alex Ovechkin again and completed its comeback after trailing in the series 2-0 and 3-2 - the latest in Washington's long history...
After a rough start to this lockout shortened season, there were plenty of calls from Rangers fans for John Tortorella's head.
He's lost the room, the players have given up on him and he's too stubborn were reasons given.
Apparently, Rangers fans forgot that he had guided the Blueshirts to their first Eastern Conference Final since 1997 just seven months prior...
The family of the NHL enforcer Derek Boogaard, who died of an overdose of painkillers in 2011, has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the National Hockey League. “To distill this to one sentence,” said William Gibbs, a lawyer for the Boogaards, “you take a young man, you subject him to trauma, you give him pills for that trauma, he becomes addicted to those pills, you promise...
Skating on ice is tough enough, but doing it when you are missing a blade on one foot during an NHL playoff game — as we found out yesterday — is next to impossible.
That's what happened to Washington Capitals rookie Tom Wilson when he was crashed into the boards and "lost his steel" during Game 6 against the New York Rangers Sunday.
The 19-year-old rookie...
One of the more surprising moves at the trade deadline this year was the Washington Capitals trading 2012 first round pick Filip Forsberg to the Nashville Predators for Martin Erat and minor leaguer Michael Latta. I picked this as a good longterm move for Nashville and a bad longterm move for Washington. There are few players with Forsberg`s potential and you don`t give them...
Nearly everything about the New York Rangers' Game 7 victory over the Washington Capitals was improbable, and yet the 5-0 drubbing they authored wasn't even the most surprising result of the night.
No, that belonged to the Boston Bruins - the Rangers' next opponent in the NHL's Eastern Conference playoffs.
On the karma scale, this matchup of Original Six teams is...
Final score was 5-0 and it wasn't even that close.
Rangers will face the Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.
One goal by the New York Rangers was enough to send this series against the Capitals back to Washington for a decisive Game 7.
One goal will likely be the margin of difference as these teams fight to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday night.
The Rangers held serve on home ice Sunday, winning 1-0 as Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves for his seventh career playoff...
