On Friday night, the excrement hit the fan in a game between the Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers. In the 3rd period, the score 7-0 Caps, a line-brawl took centre stage. The highlight of the melee was a fight (if…Read more →The post NHL Commish Gary Bettman comments on Emery’s actions in brawl between Flyers and Capitals appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m not sure who looks freakier at this point. Pat Sajak or Vanna White? In any event, because of the continued success of game show “Wheel of Fortune,” they have remained relevent (thanks plastic surgeons!). Sajak has over 14K followers…Read more →
Alex Ovechkin says he's ''able to play'' after missing two games with an upper-body injury.
The Washington Capitals forward said Monday he still has ''a little soreness'' but will ''probably'' be on the ice when his team hosts the New York Islanders on Tuesday.
Coach Adam Oates was more cautious, saying the three-time league MVP...
Just a night after the Washington Capitals played in a physical game against the Philadelphia Flyers, they came home to host the Florida Panthers. With just under 12 minutes to go, Panthers forward Krystofer Barch is sitting in the penalty box and pulls out a loose tooth. Being the away team there aren’t many Florida fans in Washington DC for the game, he gets the attention of...
The play of defenseman Luke Schenn last season was one of the few bright spots for a massively disappointing Philadelphia Flyers club in the lockout-shortened season. This season: Well, the Flyers are off to another terrible start and Schenn has been part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
Yesterday in New Jersey, Craig Berube sent a message to Schenn by making...

Last night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals wasn’t pretty on the scoreboard, and it wasn’t pretty on the ice. With the winner a foregone conclusion, a line-brawl erupted, sparked by a Wayne Simmonds hit. Flyers goaltender Ray…Read more →The post Flyers goaltender Ray Emery beats up unwilling combatant Braydon Holtby appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Nicklas Backstrom scored in the first period and added the winning goal in the shootout to lift the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.
The Capitals won their second game in a row without Alex Ovechkin, who is out with an unspecified upper-body injury.

Even people who generally have no problem with fighting in hockey are panning what the Philadelphia Flyers did on Friday night, instigating a line brawl while losing to the Washington Capitals 7-0.
To refresh your memory, this one drew extra attention because it featured a goalie fight between the Flyers’ Ray Emery and the Capitals’ Braden Holtby, in which only Emery wanted...

Gill Gets Into Lineup
A veteran of more than 1,100 NHL regular season games, Hal Gill has been the team's eighth defensemen on the depth chart after being signed to a one-year contract from a training camp tryout invitation. The...
Vinny Lecavalier will wear a helmet with a half-shield, half-cage when the veteran center-turned right wing returns to the Flyers' lineup Tuesday in Carolina.
He practiced on Claude Giroux’s line with Scott Hartnell.
Lecavalier has some facial swelling on his left side but not a broken jaw, he said. It’s the result of his fight during the 7-0 disaster against Washington...
The NHL has officially announced that the Columbus Blue Jackets will host the 2015 NHL All-Star Game. Columbus was supposed to host the event in 2013, but the event was canceled thanks to the lockout. With there being no All-Star Game in 2014 due to the break for the Olympics, the logical choice was to give Columbus the All-Star Game in 2015.
Gary Bettman's comments on...
It was already one-sided on the scoreboard, so one goalie found a way to even it up when the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals engaged in a full line brawl that included both goaltenders dropping the gloves.
The whole thing started when Wayne Simmonds turned into a human wrecking ball the next shift after Washington scored to make it 7-0. He and Tom Wilson dropped the...
