Alexander Semin's return to Washington D.C. Tuesday caused quite a stir.Semin was an enigmatic performer during his tenure with the the Washington Capitals, demonstrating world-class offensive ability and the magical ability to disappear for weeks on end.“Some nights you didn’t even know if he was gonna come to the rink,” Capitals forward Troy Brouwer observed during a...
Former Washington Capital Alexander Semin made his first appearance against his old team. Now a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, it is clear that Semin still has some fans in the D.C. area…like this girl who loves her some Semin.
Is this just an innocent sign made by a legitimate fan of Alexander Semin, or did she know what she was doing?
We don’t want to put the girl on blast...
Former Capital Alexander Semin will make his first appearance at Verizon Center on Tuesday with his new team, the Carolina Hurricanes. Semin was a polarizing figure in Washington, either going on jaw-dropping scoring binges or long droughts with poorly-timed penalties. And that was when he wasn't injured.
The Capitals saw a few things they’d never seen before during Tuesday’s game. Former teammate Alexander Semin was wearing another NHL uniform. [Continue Reading]

Let’s take a quick look at how both sides have fared in this trade so far:
Carolina has played 18 games, has...

Jordan Staal agreed that it might have been the most surreal moment in his life.
On his wedding day last summer, with about a dozen of his Pittsburgh Penguins teammates present roughly two-thirds of the roster he learned he had been traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, where he would play alongside his brother, Eric.
Talk about a range of emotions.
"Yeah, Id say it's...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- As bad as the Washington Capitals have been at times, they will wake up Wednesday only four points out of first place.
The Southeast Division is the weakling of the NHL in this compressed season, and a two-game surge -- including Tuesday night's 3-0 win over the first-but-fading Carolina Hurricanes -- has been enough to put the Capitals within decent range...
Malkin skated for 30 minutes today:
Bylsma told reporters after the Penguins' practice in Sunrise, Fla. that Malkin went on the ice after being symptom-free Tuesday.
One thing Malkin will miss on this trip is to match up against his old friend Jordan Staal.
Pierre Lebrun had an interesting write up on Staal today. Two interesting notes:

“It was tough to lose his scoring ability when he wanted to play, but all in all, I think we’ve been doing well without him.”
“Some nights you didn’t even know if he was gonna come to the rink. It’s tough to play alongside guys like those because you don’t know what you’re gonna get out of ‘em.”

Carolina had a lot of incentive to win or at least put together a good performance tonight. They still have yet to win a divisional game and one of their teammates was returning to the place he spent most of his NHL career. We heard a lot about how the guys wanted to win this game for Alexander Semin and we thought the Canes would have an inspiring performance en route to their first...
