A little more than a week ago, an article entitled “The Washington Capitals — Hanging By A Thread” chronicled half a dozen reasons why the Capitals playoff chances were fading quickly. Since that date, there’s been little, if any reason, to change that opinion. There are certainly those who will argue that over the period since the 9th of March, the Capitals have a 3...

That. Is. Awesome. Something tells me that Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin either: a) doesn’t quite understand how to correctly fill out an NCAA Tournament Brackets; b) is profoundly lazy; c) enjoys drawing circles and squiggly lines irrespective of whether or not the situation warrants it; d) looked a little something like this when he [...]

The chants become louder as the vid goes on The announcers also acknowledge it. Really bizarre stuff.
This might be the first documented case of a crowd outside of Pittsburgh chanting a pro Crosby thing.
This is absolutely amazing. The Capitals played the Jets last night in Winnipeg and lost 3-2. With a few minutes left in the game the fans started a pretty solid ‘Crosby’s better’ chant, no doubt aimed for Alex Ovechkin. Pretty funny and amazing for another team’s fans to chant something like this. Check is out below.
The Washington Capitals were utterly outclassed by a superior hockey team on Sunday night, beaten down by a 5-2 score inside the Madhouse on Madison. The Caps trailed 2-0 after only seven minutes and never recovered. They got goals from Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble to make it a tad more interesting in the second period, but by that time, the game was for the most part over...

Washington (36-29-6) had won four in a row and a season-high three straight on...
