Holtby stepping up for Capitals

Goaltender Braden Holtby -- the Capitals' third option between the pipes -- has stepped up in a big way for the Washington Capitals thus far this postseason.When Florida Panthers forward Marco Sturm fell on Washington Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth as Neuvirth was in the butterfly position Apr. 5, every Capitals fan in the world held their collective breath. Neuvirth appeared...

Nicklas Backstrom Suspended for Cross Check, Will Miss Game 4 (Video)

Down 2-1 in the best-of-seven series, the Washington Capitals are in desperate need of a victory in Game 4 on Thursday. Well, it appears that Dale Hunter's team will have to take on that challenge without one their best scorers. Nicklas Backstrom has been suspended for Game 4 by the NHL for his cross check to the head of Bruins' forward Rich Peverley at the end of Monday...

Karl Alzner calls Milan Lucic a crybaby, could be in for a beating (Video)

Karl Alzner may earn respect from his teammates for standing up to Milan Lucic on Monday night, but he may have also signed himself up for a beating. During a chippy 4-3 Boston win that went back and forth all night, a scuffle broke out late in the third period. Per usual, Lucic was at the center of it. When Alzner came up behind him and put him in a headlock during the dust-up...

Backstrom suspended by the NHL.

This was the fourth suspension of the day. As expected, Nicklas Backstrom has been suspended by the NHL for his crosscheck on Richard Peverley which resulted in Backstom receiving a match penalty. The NHL wouldn't rescind the match penalty. Of course one of the dirtiest players to ever play in the NHL defended his player. I wouldn't expect anything less. ...

Jason Chimera spears Brad Marchand in the groin (Video)

Washington Capitals forward Jason Chimera speared Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand in the groin during Monday night's NHL playoff game in Washington. It happened in the third period as the video clearly shows Chimera using the blade of his stick to spear Marchand right in front of the referee. Chimera only got 2 minutes for slashing. However, the Bruins got the...

GARTH: Why Wake A Sleeping Bear?

What the Hell was Caps D, Karl Alzner thinking? Why would he be so dumb as to wake up the sleeping Bear Lucic, and thus provoke a previously docile, drowzy pack of bears?? Alzner is smarter than that, right? The story of this series has been the the obvious power outage that has befallen the Boston scoring stars. Chara's GWG with a buck fifty three remaining in regulation...

Capitals Lose In Overtime

The Washington Capitals lost game three of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Monday night, falling to the Boston Bruins 4-3 inside Verizon Center in the series’ first game that did not head to overtime.  The Capitals led the game twice by one goal on markers from Alexander Semin and Alex Ovechkin, respectively, before allowing the Bruins to tie it and then take the lead...

Should Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg Split Up to Better Contain Alex Ovechkin?

When the Bruins and Capitals drop the puck on Monday night in Washington, the Capitals will have a subtle advantage thanks to playing at home. Coach Dale Hunter will have second change, which should allow him to gain favorable matchups, particularly when it comes to getting Alex Ovechkin on the ice when Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg aren't out there In Boston, Chara and Seidenberg...

Rapid Rewind: Bad Bounce

Capitals Unwise to Poke The Bear, Can't Win Series Trying to Beat Bruins at Their Own Game

If you're a hockey fan from outside from New England, you may not be familiar with the term "don't poke The Bear." But realistically, it's not difficult to figure out exactly what it means when speaking about the Bruins. For some reason, the Washington Capitals are having a hard time grasping the term. Allow me to help: The Bruins are bears. They are "The...

Bruins-Capitals Preview

Braden Holtby isn't the only eyebrow-raiser for the Washington Capitals so far in the playoffs. Get a load of this statement made by Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien: ''They play a patient game.'' Patient? The Capitals? When's the last time anyone said that? Yes, there is a high-scoring team getting frustrated by tight checking in the Bruins-Capitals first...

Hunter: Bruins targeting Backstrom's head

One of the dirtiest hockey players to ever play in the NHL is accusing the Boston Bruins of going after Nicklas Backstrom. I guess the former goon Hunter would be able to spot this type of behavior on the sight? In case you’ve forgotten, this is the same Dale Hunter that delivered one of the direst cheap shots I have ever witnessed to former Islander former Pierre Turgeon in Game...

I dont think he ever cried. I don't think he cried as a baby.

The title is a direct quote from Chris Kelly. I wonder if the Capitals are happy they poked the bear. Lucic probably didn't cry as a baby, but Matt Hendricks looks like he **** his pants. I'm sure they're glad they poked the bear.
