Ouch! Not a good hit, actually, this is a very dangerous hit by Washington Capitals forward Jason Chimera on former Wisconsin Badger and Edmonton Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz. I would call this a push check. Chimera only received a two-minutes penalty for his efforts. Schultz appeared to be okay.
Members of the Washington Capitals wore funky sunglasses, grabbed a puppy, and posed for a charity calendar to raise money for Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.
Epic fail. It’s a term still kicking around the internet, used to describe when someone screws up so badly, it isn’t just some garden-variety foul-up. It’s a failure of epic proportions that should not go ignored. And this video featuring Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green qualifies as one of those fails of epic magnitude.

Q: If the Oilers were to go after a new No. 1 goaltender, who would be better, Ryan Miller or Jonas Hiller?
A: Miller. Both guys are UFA in July. The Oilers aren’t giving up on Devan Dubnyk, certainly not after four starts. He’s a good goalie going through a rotten patch, looking like the Penguins’ Marc...
No penalty on the play and Stepan did leave the game but did return.
Stay the course. Pay no attention to the results on the scoreboard. That was Coach Adam Oates’s message through five games as the Washington Capitals struggled to create offense and clean up their play.

WASHINGTON — Adam Oates’ coaching has fianlly paid off. He preached to his team to calm down and be patient, as they have struggled to score goals early this season. Monday night he was rewarded as his team netted four goals in a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers. Oates kept his same three lines hoping they […]
It would have been easy for the hapless Edmonton Oilers to just let their three-game losing streak stretch into four.
Not only had they just come off a 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals one night earlier they were in the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins who outshot the Oilers 15-3 in the first 20 minutes.
But the Oilers battled back and really deserved a better fate than a 3-2...

Last Game for the Pens: Saturday, a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Sidney Crosby scored his first hat trick since 2010, which says all you need to know about how his last couple of seasons has been derailed by injuries. He added an assist on Matt Niskanen’s game-winning goal.
