The Bruins finally get another shot at the Washington Capitals. The last time the two teams played Tim Thomas was in net and Joel Ward got a game winning goal in OT. Almost like a bad dream from long ago. So far this season the Capitals are 8-11-1 and are having a dissapointing season after upsetting the Bruins in the playoffs. Part of the Capitals dissapoitninis the continue of mediocre play from Alexander Ovechkin. Ovechkin has 8 goals and 8 asssists. 8 goals isnt exactly mediocre but Brad Marchand has more goals. 1) Revenge. Just one key to the game tonight. Revenge.

The Capitals put their grinders out more than the starts and just put the big guys in front of the net. Now that the Capitals have a new coach they have the old approach. Allowing the Bruins to out play the Capitals. The Bruins can impose their physicality on the Capita...

Mike Milbury Ripping Alex Ovechkin (Video)

Courtesy of Massholesports, I actually remember watching this live last weekend laughing that Mike Milbury was actually ripping Ovechkin. Funny thing is Ovechkin will continue doing it, he's a spoiled brat who is extremely gifted, but still acts like a little kid.  I hope the Bruins stick it to the Caps tonight.

Alzner: I Knew That We Had the Personnel

What are Caps fans supposed to think at this point?

Capitals 4, Bruins 3, OT

Eric Fehr scored 37 seconds into overtime Tuesday night, and the Washington Capitals rallied from a three-goal, first-period deficit to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 in a thriller reminiscent of the teams' seven-game playoff series a year ago. Pinched by two defenders, Fehr was falling forward as he got off the shot that hit the upper right post and went in, giving the Capitals...

Bruins-Capitals Live: B’s Go to Washington for Playoff Rematch With Caps

Those high hopes were shot down early in last season’s playoffs, however, thanks to the Washington Captials.

Bruins Let Three-Goal Lead Slip Away in ‘D.C. Disaster’ Against Capitals (Video)

There are moral victories, there are actual victories and then there’s what happened on Tuesday night, which was neither. The Bruins let a three-goal lead slip away against the Capitals, losing 4-3 in overtime at the Verizon Center. On the heels of a tough loss to the Canadiens, this was a decidedly bad loss — and the spectacular nature of the winning goal doesn’t do much to...
