As if the NHL season was not screwy enough with the lock-out, the Washington Capitals have been in an uphill battle all season. Key forward Brooks Laich has missed all season with a groin injury suffered during the lock-out. According to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post, tonight will skate with his teammates for the first time all season. The timing for this couldn’t be any...

Two concussions suffered in Hershey kept him out of the lineup for 3 months and...

Caps fall to the Penguins, 2-1, in the first game back for Brooks Laich and Dmitri Orlov.

It wasn’t long after an onslaught of criticism for Alex Ovechkin by Mike Milbury, Jeremy Roenick, Pierre McGuire and P.J. Stock that Sirius-XM NHL Network analyst Jim “Boomer” Gordon made an astute comparison. When Puck the Media’s Steve Lepore asked if there was any athlete in another sport who gets as abused as Ovechkin,...
