I couldn’t have said it any better myself. This is a very stupid club that makes the same sort of mistakes over and over and over and over and over again no matter who’s coaching them.

In the midst of just his second season at the helm – first true season given last year’s lockout-shortened schedule – how he approaches the potholes in Washington’s game and goes about trying...

Okay, maybe not all of us.
But one fan was definitely in that place at Thursday night's Blue Jackets game.
Capitals head coach Adam Oates is very much unaware as a fan punks him from behind.
Photobombing is an art and this guy gets an...
Adam Oates had a rough trip to Columbus on Thursday night. Not only did his Capitals drop their game against the Blue Jackets 5-2, but Oates also fell victim to one of the best photobombs we’ve seen in sports in 2014.
