Via Larry Brown Sports:

Those of us who have dogs can totally understand what Karl Alzner was feeling on Wednesday night when he returned home to find that his dogs had gone on a destructive rampage. Do we know what it feels like to lose a triple-overtime game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs? No, but we certainly can relate to coming home after a terrible day at work to find that our dog(s) must have been sniffing glue or something and decided to go hog wild on our living room.

On the bright side, at least someone was having fun while the Capitals were in the process of falling into a 2-1 series hole against the Rangers. From the look of it, the dogs managed to get their paws on some magazine pages, a slipper, some newspapers, and they even got some chewing action in on that red bag sitting on the chair. Karl may have had a night to forget, but his dogs will remember this one forever.

Karl Alzner Returns Home From Triple-OT Loss To Rangers And Finds This…

Poor guy. After Karl Alzner of the New York Rangers had just played in a marathon game against the Washington Capitals and lost in the 3rd overtime, all he wanted to do was go home and fall asleep. To his surprise though, he returned home to find his dogs had terrorized his house. Kind of cute, kind of sad, and kind of funny.   H/T Hot Clicks Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Ovechkin needs to lead from the front

Lost in all the talk about Capitals star winger Alexander Ovechkin's diminished ice time is the fact that the 3rd and 4th lines are shutting down the opponent's top lines while scoring critical goals themselves.

Ovechkin on lack of ice time: ‘Sometimes you just have to put eye in your butt…’

A lot of time has been spent in D.C. (and the NHL world at-large) debating and speculating — all the while engaged in perhaps some hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing (who knows?) regarding the precipitous drop in ice time of the Washington Capitals’ shrinking violet of a Russian superstar, Alexander Ovechkin. Down a game to the New [...]

Rangers-Capitals Preview

Hard to blame Capitals forward Brooks Laich - or anyone who played in Washington's three-overtime loss to the New York Rangers - for wanting to catch up on sleep. While dozing, Laich wound up having quite a nightmare. ''I woke up, and for some reason, I thought the season was over.
