Washington Capitals rookie defenseman Steven Oleksy has been a pleasant surprise for the Caps so far during their terrible season. In eight games, Oleksy has added 1 goal and 3 assists while posting a +1 rating.

Before Sunday's game, Capitals coach Adam Oates had a feeling Jason Chimera was getting close to breaking out of his scoreless slump.
He was right.
Chimera scored his first regular-season goal in nearly a year and the Capitals held on for a 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night, raising expectations that Chimera and Washington's offense might be finding their...

Really strange thing. Schultz is a minus 7 this season so whatever.

Right now, it doesn't feel as big as it once did when the Capitals visit Pittsburgh. But, believe us, if the Caps beat the Penguins tonight and break the Pens' winning streak, they'll be hanging a banner up...
The Caps are a hot ******* mess. And Adam Oates apparently doesn't think this schedule is pretty much the same as it was, say, in an Olympic year or whatever the ****.
Cry more idk.
Letang is hurt. Gene might be back Friday. ugh.
The Caps take a dumb penalty against the Crosby line within 2 minutes of puck drop. We learn that Brooks Laich is back in...
