NEWARK, N.J. — Michal Neuvirth didn't want to talk about his stellar start Friday night, when he kept the Washington Capitals in the game despite the ice being slanted in his direction. Instead, Neuvirth turned the subject back to the team and what happened to dig a three-goal hole against ...

Jason Chimera: the Capitals' unlikely goal leader

NEWARK, N.J. — Jason Chimera's two goals Friday night vaulted him back into the Washington Capitals' lead for goals this season. That's not a typo — vaulted back, as Chimera has reclaimed a spot he's held for much of the season. He now has 13 and is on pace for ...

John Carlson thinks he’s smart

Lots of agreement from the Capitals here: Mike Knuble is the smartest dude in the dressing room, and John Carlson thinks he’s the smartest dude in the dressing room. Read full article >>

Capitals-Devils Preview

Consistency has eluded the Washington Capitals for much of this season, but Michal Neuvirth has been very steady lately. The Capitals' backup goaltender is expected to get a chance to continue his strong play Friday night against the New Jersey Devils, who hope the return of Patrik Elias will help them regain their scoring touch. Washington is 8-12-1 in its last 21, posting...

Rapid Rewind: A Point is a Point

The Washington Capitals were oh so close on Friday night, erasing a pitiful second period with an outstanding third one and clawing a point out of the Devils that they certainly did not deserve throughout the first two thirds of the game.  Brooks Laich and Jason Chimera were the goal scorers, Chimera twice, as the Caps found a way to head into the holiday break with a slightly...

Jason Chimera keeps up career-best scoring pace in Capitals’ loss to Devils

The Capitals got a point on a night when they probably didn’t deserve one, at least not based on their effort and execution through the first two periods of Friday’s 4-3 shootout loss in New Jersey. And they’ve got Jason Chimera to thank for that crucial point. With goals Nos. 12 and 13 – both in the third period – Chimera not only forced the game to overtime, he took...

Todd Cordell: Devils get on track with W, Wedgewood Canada's new starter? Other notes

The Devils came out with a purpose last night and took a demanding 3-0 lead over the Washington Capitals; however, they let up in the third period (once again) and next thing they knew they found themselves in a shootout. Though they hung on for a win, last night's game doesn't exactly leave fans with a good taste in their mouth. Here are some notes on last night's game...

Three's company as Capitals' stars get goals

Before Tuesday night, the last time Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Semin scored in the same game was Oct. 30, 2010. "It's tough when you hear that stat," Backstrom said. "But it's good. It happens sometimes." It's also not a coincidence that before Tuesday night, Nov. 4 (a 5-1 ...

Capitals' Brooks Laich understands concussions are 'gray area'

On Oct. 14, the morning after Jay Beagle suffered a concussion in a fight with Arron Asham and had to leave the Washington Capitals' game at the Pittsburgh Penguins, Brooks Laich had some pretty pointed comments about the league's protocol process. "I really don't care about that awareness stuff. To ...

Practice: Dec. 22

The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Thursday afternoon as they prepare to take on the New Jersey Devils Friday night in Newark.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex: Mike Green skated before practice for about 30 minutes and then remained on ice for about 15 minutes into the practice, taking rushes with the other defensemen.  Green looked good in testing...

Capitals earn a point after three-goal third period, fall to the Devils in a shootout

NEWARK, N.J. — A harmless shot from Jason Chimera that Martin Brodeur stopped easily elicited sarcastic applause from a half-hearted New Jersey Devils crowd. That's how bad it was for the Washington Capitals for two periods on Friday night. The third period was the opposite — more like the Caps ...
