Matt Hendricks didn’t make any friends at the TD Garden on Saturday, and that didn’t ring true only on the ice.
Hendricks got into it with a fan on his way to the locker room late in the game, after he lost a spirited scrap against Bruins enforcer Adam McQuaid. As he headed down the hallway, the Capitals center turned and motioned that he would be watching the offending fan, as arena security moved in to quell any potential escalation.
Check out Hendricks’ move in the animation below.
BEST OF MAXIM
BOSTON — Tempers were flaring Saturday afternoon at TD Garden, with the Bruins and Capitals getting an early start on some St. Patrick’s Day rowdiness.
The B’s ended up winning the physical tilt 4-1, and that was thanks in large part to the club’s ability to dominate physically. It was a favorable matchup for the Bruins who played the role of bully on Saturday as well as...
Michal Neuvirth will be valuable to this organization, but in what capacity? (Clydeorama)
At the beginning of the 2010-11 season, Michal Neuvirth entered Washington Capitals training camp as the de facto backup to Semyon Varlamov, who had established himself as a supremely talented youngster over the previous two seasons. With the Caps’ former “starter,” Jose Theodore...
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...
After starting out his career with so much promise, Alex Ovechkin has looked like an average player the last few seasons.
Former Bruin Mike Milbury says that is due to a lack of commitment on Ovechkin’s part. He says Ovechkin is inconsistent because he’s not putting his whole mind into being the best player he can be. The former Islanders head coach and general manager said it’s...
Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist in the second period of the Washington Capitals' 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.
Jason Chimera added his first regular-season goal in nearly a year for the Capitals (12-15-1), who broke out of an offensive slump in which they had scored only seven times in five games - losing four.
Alex Ovechkin got the Capitals going...

The Washington Capitals rebounded from a disappointing game Saturday to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 5-3 inside Verizon Center on Sunday evening. Getting a goal from Alex Ovechkin 19 seconds in to the game, the Caps also got goals from Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera, and Marcus Johansson to make it...
Forget hockey plays. What really worried the Capitals’ Joel Ward momentum-wise in the Capitals’ 5-3 win over Buffalo Sunday night was the minor power outage at Verizon Center at the start of the third period.
“We were just glad it wasn’t another blackout like the Super Bowl,” he joked after the game, which eventually resumed in a slightly less illuminated setting. “We...
When the Bruins traded away Adam Oates, they received a hero’s ransom in return for the outgoing legend.
In one of the biggest blockbuster deals of the 1990s, the B’s shipped Oates, Rick Tocchet and Bill Ranford to the Washington Capitals for Jim Carey, Anson Carter, Jason Allison, a third-round draft pick in the 1997 draft and a conditional second-round pick for 19998.
Alex Ovechkin needs help on the first line. Can the Capitals find someone?

The Boston Bruins may be eager to help keep the Washington Capitals out of the playoffs given what happened the last time the teams met in Massachusetts.
Another overtime loss to the Capitals is even fresher in their minds, and they'll be out to avenge that defeat Saturday.
Joel Ward stunned the Boston crowd with an overtime goal in Game 7 of a first-round playoff series last...
12:31 p.m.: The Bruins and Capitals just took the ice for warmups.
Anton Khudobin led the Bruins out, and Michael Neuvirth led the Capitals out, so those will be your starting goaltenders.
12:10 p.m.: Good afternoon and welcome to TD Garden where the Bruins are an hour away from getting going with the Washington Capitals.
It’s going to be a gametime decision for Claude Julien...
from Mike Cole of NESN,
“We have some big forwards, we have some guys that can play physical if they want to do that,” Washington head coach Adam Oates said after the game, according to the Washington Times. “But we don’t want to play that kind of game, we don’t want to get involved in their game.”
The Capitals were none too pleased with some physical play...
