Tom Wilson forgot to keep his head on a swivel Tuesday night.
The Capitals rookie turned in the best performance of his young career in a 6-2 rout of the Islanders, tallying a goal and an assist for his first NHL points (and narrowly missing out on a Gordie Howe hat trick when he turned down a fight with Isles bruiser Matt Carkner in the closing minutes).

Man, this was awesome. Seriously it was as good as it gets are far as fights in hockey. On Friday night the Philadelphia Flyers were trailing the Washington Captials 7-0 early in the third period when they decided they had enough of getting blown out. Philadelphia’s fans were chanting for the removal of general managers Paul Holmgren when the damn finally broke for the players...
Something is wrong here. And no, it's not BSchenn's face. (Rant)
The Washington Capitals are 5-7. It’s been awhile since I posted a recap for a variety of reasons, so it’s time for some thoughts:
The Capitals are awful at even strength. Just abysmal. Using data from ExtraSkater and Behind the Net: when the score is close, Washington’s 44.3 fenwick percentage...
When the #Caps travel, they seem to take to Twitter to discuss rather mundane things a bit more often. Today’s topic of conversation revolved around the Blackberry and the iPhone. If you have a blackberry you must be pretty pumped right now. Everyone is coming back to join you! #lonelycoupleyears — Tom Wilson (@tom_wilso) October […]

On Sunday, Anaheim acquired centre Mathieu Perreault from Washington in exchange for AHL-player John Mitchell and a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft.
With the Capitals stuck between the fiery axe of the looming roster deadline and a piece of NHL legislation that meant budding star Tom Wilson would either have to be assigned a place at the top table (meaning valuable cap space...
A couple of days ago, I noted that the emergence of Tom Wilson was going to spell bad things for Mathieu Perreault. Yesterday that has come to be true as the Capitals traded Perreault to the Anaheim Ducks for AHL winger John Mitchell(and no, not the one you are probably thinking of) and a 2014 4th-round draft pick. And thus draws to a close the five-year stint in Washington for...
