Re: Washington Capitals 2008-2009 ongoing thread

CAPS slash thrash, 4-3! Neuvirth (2-0) looked solid between the pipes.

Need to get on a roll see if we can get the Bees on the road Saturday. Then turn around and fight it out with Fla. Sunday at Verizon.....We'll be there for that one!!!

Let's see if Theo can get hot at the right time and stay hot, down the stretch! 20 games left.

GO CAPS!!!!!

Re: Washington Capitals 2008-2009 ongoing thread

Didn't get a chance to see the game tonight - was working late - but I see we dominated on the PP again. 3 goals. Nicely. I'm glad Neuvirth is playing well. I thought Varlamov was going to be the guy to replace Johnson, but I guess his knee isn't quite there. Either that or Neuvirth has gained the edge. Either way I'm thrilled about the future of the goalie position for the Caps!

Huge tilt this afternoon against the bean brains in bean town! We need to play our best to get this one on the road! It would be a HUGE 2 points if we can get it on the road!

Great effort by the entire team. Great 8 gets his league leading 45th

Did you see how quickly Boston's goalie skated off the ice? Hilarious!! Go Caps.

I will say, if we hadn't allowed that power play goal late in the 3rd it would have kept Boston from picking up a point. Our 3rd period penalties have been awful lately.

Re: Washington Capitals 2008-2009 ongoing thread

As the trade deadline is nearing (March 4) SI.com predicts the CAPS move as follows: LETS MAKE A DEAL..?

Bonk & Zanon would both be solid additions to the club, for the playoffs and beyond! Hope it happens.

NHL trade deadline deals that make sense - Allan Muir - SI.com

Nashville sends Radek Bonk and Greg Zanon to Washington for Oskar Osala and Sami Lepisto

The young Caps may still be a year or two away from the silverware, but they've played well enough to earn deadline reinforcements from George McPhee. Goaltending may be the most glaring need, but this deal addresses two other problem areas: lack of depth down the middle and the need for a physical presence on the blueline. Bonk is operating at 62 percent on the draw -- tops in the league -- and Zanon is a warrior who'll sacrifice his body to make a play. Both are UFA's this summer, so they won't impact next year's books. The Preds get a promising young forward in Osala -- currently third among AHL rookies with 19 goals -- and a small but talented puck-moving blueliner in Lepisto.

How can you not want a hockey player with a last name like Bonk??

McPhee is pretty good about knowing his BONK, we do have the BRASH and one hell of a hockey club! Could hold his own VERY well in his time. The man could flat out go.

As Tocchet remembers well & in his time he was one of the toughest to ever lasem up! And our old bench boss Glen Hanlon (pre BRUCE) remembers as well!

Hope this clip works well...ENJOY!

Re: Washington Capitals 2008-2009 ongoing thread

OVY to miss HUGE GAME for the CAPS to get back on track after two home losses vs. the leafs tonight.

Tonight a must win for team confidence! They must rebound and get back on track. Theo get your job done, as well as the rest of the team step up!

Washington Capitals - The Official Web Site

Ovechkin to Miss Thursday's Game
Left wing is day-to-day with injured foot
Mike Vogel | WashingtonCaps.com Senior Writer Washington Capitals
Mar 5, 2009, 6:11 PM EST

Ovechkin
Washington left wing Alex Ovechkin will miss tonight’s game between the Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ovechkin is day-to-day with a foot injury incurred at Wednesday’s practice at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Ovechkin, now in his fourth NHL season, missed two games earlier this season when he returned to his native Russia to visit with his ailing grandfather. Tonight’s game marks just the second game in the 23-year-old’s NHL career that he has missed because of injury. Ovechkin sat out a game between the Capitals and the Islanders on Long Island on Jan. 30, 2006.

Washington lost that game against New York a bit more than three years ago, and it was 1-1 in the two games Ovechkin missed earlier this season.

GO CAPS!!!!!

I think we made a mistake not helping out the blue line before the trade deadline. We're not gonna win too many defense-first hockey games. Plus our goaltending is average at best. I think we'll break out of this funk, but I'm worried about how we'll do in the playoffs.

Re: Washington Capitals 2008-2009 ongoing thread

Finally broke out of the funk tonight, beating Nashville 2-1 in OT. Caps also finally beat a team from the Western Conference.

Huge game at Philly on Thursday, they're creeping up on us in the points standings.
