Capitals C Perreault taken to hospital

Washington Capitals center Mathieu Perreault was taken to a hospital after sustaining what the team called an upper-body injury in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres. A team spokesperson said the plan was for Perreault to rejoin the team in Washington on Tuesday after staying in Buffalo overnight, though he noted Perreault may not necessarily stay in the hospital. Perreault...

Capitals G Vokoun not happy with role of backup

Washington Capitals goaltender Tomas Vokoun isn't thrilled with being reduced to a backup. After starting the season strong, Vokoun has been on the bench since Dec. 13 and seen Michal Neuvirth play the last five contests. "I can't really tell you. I don't know what I did wrong to be in this spot," Vokoun told the Washington Times. "I'm a professional...

World Juniors Special for Carlson, Alzner

For most of their professional careers, Capitals defensemen John Carlson and Karl Alzner have been attached at the hip.  Carlson, 21, and Alzner, 23, who were drafted two years apart, began their professional journeys with the Caps' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, developing alongside current Caps like Michal Neuvirth, Mathieu Perreault, and Jay Beagle...

When Will Mike Green Play?

from the Washington Post, It’s unclear when (Mike) Green, who was not made available to comment for this story, will return from his latest setback, a strained right groin muscle that he suffered in mid-November. When Green’s recovery plateaued two weeks ago, the Capitals decided to take an experimental route with his rehabilitation, according to several people familiar with...

Is There A #1 Goalie In Washington?

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider, Michal Neuvirth will make a fifth consecutive start tonight as the Capitals take on a Buffalo squad anxious for a win. The Sabres have lost three straight and are trying to avoid dropping four consecutive contests in regulation for the first time since February of 2010. This is the longest stretch of starts Neuvirth has seen this season and...

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 ...

Hamrlik's penalty sets wrong tone for Capitals

BUFFALO, N.Y. — It wasn't over in nine seconds, but it all went downhill before a lot of fans at First Niagara Center could even settle into their seats. Nicklas Backstrom won the opening faceoff — a good start — and the Washington Capitals possessed the puck. But Roman Hamrlik sailed ...

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...

Capitals C Perrault forced from game with injury

Washington Capitals center Mathieu Perreault left Monday's game against the Buffalo Sabres with an upper-body injury. Perreault was hurt following a collision with Buffalo's Christian Ehrhoff. He was sent to a hospital for observation and it was uncertain if he would accompany the team on its flight home. In 23 games this season, Perrault has three goals and four assists.

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...

Capitals' road woes pinned on sluggish starts

NEWARK, N.J. — Outside the friendly confines of Verizon Center, the Washington Capitals know they need to be careful. In hockey, the home team gets the final line change and can set the matchups it wants and can often use that to great advantage. The Caps learned again on Friday ...

Rapid Rewind: Speared

The Washington Capitals were embarrassed, again, by the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night, falling 4-2 inside First Niagara Center.  Michal Neuvirth was pulled after half a period after allowing three goals, and Tomas Vokoun was solid in relief but by then the damage was already done.  Matt Hendricks and Alex Ovechkin made it look more respectable with goals well after the result...

Capitals-Sabres Preview

Both the Washington Capitals and the Buffalo Sabres spent Christmas feeling dissatisfied about their seasons so far. Each team will have plenty to say about whether the other can begin to turn things around before the end of 2011. The frustrated clubs square off Monday night at Buffalo in the first of two meetings in a five-day span. The Sabres (16-15-3) haven't exactly played...
