Jon Quick has the Kings climbing, and the Canadiens and Bruins are falling in Nabil Karim's Power Rankings. It comes as no surprise that the unbeaten Washington Capitals occupy the top spot.

Ovechkin’s wax figure officially unveiled

Dear Lord. It’s so realistic. And quite disturbing. Well, perhaps “so realistic” might be a bit of a stretch — not that Wax Sculpture Alexander Ovechkin isn’t a mighty fine waxen representation of the Washington Capitals superstar– it’s just that, I don’t know, there’s something about it that is queerly unnatural. Like in a Invasion [...]

Winning becomes a 'habit' for perfect Capitals

The Washington Capitals have started the NHL season with seven straight wins. Now it's time to test that streak with their first multigame road trip. The Capitals left Tuesday for Canada, where they'll play Edmonton on Thursday before a much-anticipated showdown with Vancouver on Saturday. Washington leads the NHL in goals per game and power-play percentage, but it'...

Alexander Ovechkin's Wax Statue at Madame Tussauds Might Be Too Perfect (Video)

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Washington, D.C., unveiled a wax statue of Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin on Sunday, but there's just one problem: The statue might be too perfect.

The Washington Capitals were on ice Wednesday afternoon inside Rexall Place as they prepare for their game against the Oilers Thursday night.  Some updates from Edmonton: Mike Green was once again absent from practice because of his sore ankle and it now seems unlikely that he will suit up Thursday night.  Sean Collins will take his place in the event he can't go.  Said Bruce...

Capitals-Oilers Preview

The Washington Capitals have experienced plenty of regular-season success during their run of four consecutive Southeast Division titles, but they've never begun a campaign quite this well. Washington looks to become the sixth team in NHL history to start a season with eight straight victories when it visits the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. The Capitals (7-0-0) are the...

3-18: talent vs. emotion

Michael Elkon and I have swapped a couple of e-mails about this Jeff Schultz post on Georgia’s recent history at the Cocktail Party.  While I think it’s foolish to deny the role that Georgia’s fragile mental state has played in the futility – as Schultz notes, nine interceptions in the last three games says something about that – I do wonder if he overstates his case a...
