Bear Recap-The Hershey Bears faced the East Division rivals in the Binghamton Senators last Friday night. Hershey started out slow and ended up down 3-1 and 4-2. They clawed back to tie the game at 4 with two third period PP goals.  The PK held their own going 9/10 on the evening and keeping the tie within reach. Sabourin made some point blank saves late in OT to get the game to the shootout. Binghamton would take the shootout win 5-4 scoring twice as all 4 Bear shooters were stopped. Saturday Hershey put a solid team effort up against Adirondack and helped Philipp Grubauer earn his first AHL shootout with 40 saves. Special teams was the answer as Hershey scored a SH goal and 2 PP goals. The PK also went 5/5. The game winning SH goal was a 185 ft shot along the boards by Patrick McNeill that hit the glass and coasted into the net vacated by Scott Monroe to play the puck. This full moon night had one more crazy event in store for the Bears as a clearing shot from Adirondack deflected...

Mike Milbury trashes Alex Ovechkin's play against Flyers (Video)

NBC Sports Network NHL analyst Mike Milbury completely trashed Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin for his lack of effort during Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. During the second intermission, Milbury said that Oveckin "should be ashamed of himself" for his "awful display of hockey" during the first two periods. Among the lowlights...

Capitals Stagnant, but Braden Holtby is Showing Promise

A couple weeks ago the Washington Capitals sat in last place in an underperforming Southeast Division, sitting six points behind the division leader.  Not much has changed since.  The only difference: they have gained minimal ground on the division leader, sitting just four points back.  The Southeast Division continues to underperform.  The Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning...

Mike Milbury slams Ovechkin, tells him to "act like a man"

Mike Milbury ripping on Alex Ovechkin isn't exactly a new thing. The NBC commentator seems to love calling out Ovechkin whenever he's given the opportunity. The second intermission between Washington and Philadelphia was no exception, as Milbury went on quite the rant about the struggling star. Maybe aside from the unnecessary "act like a man" comment,...

Ovechkin Is A Big Stupid Baby

It’s no secret that Alex Ovechkin’s effort and output this season have been hit-or-miss. But to say he’s a “disgusting” “baby” with “no fight” who should be “embarrassed” might be going a bit far. That didn’t stop NBC’s Mike Milbury during intermission in last night’s loss:

Mike Milbury Rips Alex Ovechkin: “He Should Be Ashamed Of Himself”

As any hockey fan should know, Mike Milbury is certainly not one to keep his opinions to himself. He’s made Tommy Salo cry, beaten up a fan with a shoe, allegedly assaulted a 12-year old, and once even referred the entire country of Russia as “Eurotrash.” His latest target was Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, who according to Milbury “should be ashamed of himself...

Harry Zolnierczyk knee on Mathieu Perreault

From the replay, it does look like the Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk catches Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault with a "dirty" knee check, just like Taylor Hall hit Cal Clutterbuck. It's a bit of a different angle so it's not as cut an dry in my opinion. If I was a betting man, and I am, I think a suspension is coming for Zolnierczyk I would imagine that ...

Mike Milbury calls out Ovie

Alex Ovechkin makes $9,538,462 a year to play hockey for the Washington Capitals and I think Mike Milbury is right to call him out on National television, he played like a bag of ass tonight. If I was the owner of the Washington Capitals I would be upset. If I was a team mate of Ovechkin I would be upset.
