Capitals’ Mike Green and Eric Fehr Will Not Be Making a Return to Washington

Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington spoke to the agent that represents both players, and in an interview, his agent, Craig Oster, said this… It’s a function of where the Capitals are as an organization, changes that have been made there and the salary cap as to why they weren’t in a position to do much more than they were. At the end of the day, it’s a decision by them as to how they make their best team and based on all the factors it wasn’t going to work out for Mike or Eric or the organization and both sides...

Brouwer Scores Winter Classic Game Winner with 12.9 Seconds Left

Troy Brouwer scored a power-play goal (see video; it’s a great goal) with 12.9 seconds remaining in the third period to lift the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Nationals Park. After going up 2-0 in the first period with goals by Eric Fehr and Alex Ovechkin, the Caps found themselves tied 2-2 late in the third, and on the penalty kill with three minutes left in the game. Just as that Caps’ penalty ended, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews got called for hooking and the Caps scored late...

Sun Delay a Possibility for Winter Classic

Playing at their home ballpark , the Washington Nationals have grown accustomed to the blinding light produced by the sun setting behind home plate, once dubbed the “Sun Monster” by Bryce Harper because of how it can swallow fly balls and make routine plays a harrowing proposition. Now, in the thick of winter, as Nationals Park prepares to host the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day, a sunny forecast could throw a wrench into the scheduled 1 p.m. start time.

Struggles Continue at Home; Sabres Drop Caps, 2-1

The Capitals continue to maintain a playoff ranking spot in the Metropolitan Division, but their just over .500 record won’t hold up for too long. Being at home is something that teams need to take advantage of to capitalize on crucial wins; the Unleash the Fury and the sea of red at Verizon Center should always help the hometown team get that extra boost. Last night was a game that the Capitals should of easily put away. The Sabres were 5-13-2 going in. Enroth was between the pipes for Buffalo, as former goaltender for the Caps, Neuvirth, has been sitting...

Caps Win in Colorado 3-2; Ovie’s Game Winner is “Sick”

The Caps got another important road win, beating the Avs 3-2 (and in regulation, no less). It will be a game talked about for years to come, as Alex Ovechkin’s game winner with five minutes left in the third is one of those you watch over and over again, thinking “how the hell did he do that?”. The Caps need to find some consistency in their play, particularly on the road, as they’ll be playing 11 of 16 through the end of the year away from the Verizon Center.

Jack Johnson’s parents bankrupt him

Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson makes $5 million a year, but has filed for bankruptcy, owing more than $10 million with only $50,000 in assets. How does that happen, you ask? In one of the saddest stories I’ve heard, it turns out that Johnson trusted his parents to manage his money and they put him in the poorhouse, borrowing more than $15 million against his future earnings, then defaulting on the high-interest loans, leaving him subject to three lawsuits. They purchased houses and cars while in charge of Johnson’s earnings, eventually leaving him near penniless.

Losing Two Straight, Capitals Look Lost

Last night in St. Louis, the Capitals were completely dominated. If it wasn’t for an error on Brian Elliot’s part by allowing Joel Ward’s shot to go through, the Caps would of been shutout back to back nights. Their play in Washington against the Devils was completely undisciplined, and their play in St. Louis was “awful” as Barry Trotz puts it. They need to stop looking at how the other team was better and look at how their own team can improve. It’s a shame to see a team with so much talent, falter. The loss last night has the...
