Montreal Canadiens @ Washington Capitals 01-05-2010

Ovechkin named Captain before Capitals play first home game of the decade.

For the first home game of the new year, the Washington Capitals are looking to avenge a dreadful two-game trip to the West Coast that saw them lose their respected matchups by a combined score of 7-3. The Caps had their work cut out for them, facing two of the of the top teams in the Western Conference in the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings. The road trip proved that there is plenty of work to do if they truly want to make a Stanley Cup run.

Islanders at Capitals – 10/30/2009

The Capitals enter tonight’s contest seeking their seventh straight win following a victory over the Atlanta Thrashers last night. The team, especially Alexander Ovechkin, is on a tear and has brought about this winning streak with their continued offensive power and improved defense. Against Atlanta, Ovechkin tied an NHL record with six multi-goal games in one month. In 12 games, Ovechkin has 13 goals and 22 points, both tops in the NHL. Over the past week and a half, the team has also received positive contributions from young call-ups Keith Aucoin and Alexandre Giroux, which is a great sign for a team already stacked with veteran star power.

What is in a Name?

While traversing the web today reading up on the Washington Capitals, I stumbled across a piece by Chris Needham on NBCWashington.com. The article was mainly a response to a blog written by our friends at OnFrozenBlog.com, regarding the possibility that the Caps’ current top line of Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and Alexander Semin could be one of the greatest of all time.

Caps Recap 10/5/09

It’s Monday, it’s a new Hockey season, that means it’s time to break out the Caps Recap!

The Caps had two games last week facing the Northeast Division Champion Boston Bruins in their season opener followed up by the familiar face of Ron Wilson and his Toronto Maple Leafs in their home opener. The Caps came out of the gate swinging scoring 10 goals in their first two games. Alex Ovechkin having three goals in his first two games is hardly a surprise, but for him to be tied with Brooks Laich certainly may raise some eyebrows.

The race for the cup starts here, so lets get to some recapping!

Washington Capitals fans weren’t just Rocking the Red, they were rocking the Verizon Center. During a TV timeout with 5:56 left to play in the third period, the Caps gameday staff played “Unleash the Fury,” a video that got the already roucous crowd whipped up into a frenzy.

Ovie On E:60, 4/21

The Washington Capitals’ ultra-megastar Alexander Ovechking will make an appearance on ESPN’s E:60, ESPN’s verson of 60 minutes. Ovie, who will be the first hockey player to make the show, spent multiple hours over the course of two weeks shooting for the piece. Rachel Nichols will do the interview.

If that name sounds familiar to Caps’ fans, its because Rachel was the Caps Beat Writer at the Post before going to work in Bristol.
