Caps Take On The Habs

Things are about to get underway at Bell Centre in Montreal. The Caps are likely to take shots at Bourque. Neuvirth is in the crease tonight.


Isles Play a Perfect Road Game

The Islanders tallied once in the first and once in the second and once in the third. The Caps failed to tally at all. This game was a perfect example of what Caps fans have been seeing all season: the failure of the Caps to get enough shots. Vokoun made his 10th straight start. The Caps were 4/6 on the penalty kill, and 0/3 on the power play. This loss marks the first time the Caps have lost at home since the Flyers game where they lost 5-2 and in 2012. Vokoun stopped 25 of 28 shots for an 89.3% save percentage. The Caps walked away with only 17 shots; something the Caps have become used to.

The Caps get a chance to redeem themselves tomorrow though. They play the Habs in Montreal at 7:30 PM EST. Oh, and Bourque (you know, the guy who damaged Nick Backstrom) will be present, so maybe that will encourage the Caps just a little bit. We should expect Neuvirth to be in the crease, but who knows.

NHL 11 – Cool Cover


Who else agrees EA should have used something like this on last years or this years NHL game? Looks pretty sick, plus it fuels the Caps/Pens rivalry.

Caps Face Isles in First Game of Back-to-Back

The Caps have the daunting task of hosting the New York Islanders tonight at the Verizon Center. The Caps have 7 straight home victories going into this game. Vokoun will be occupying the crease tonight. One has to think Neuvy will start tomorrow, but I suppose it will be based off tonight.

Mike Green Update

Mike Green is going to be out 4-6 weeks as he recovers from abdominal surgery. Let’s hope this corrects his abdomen so he can stay healthy.

Caps, Orlov top the Canes

The Caps scored two in the third game of their current home stand and it proved to be enough as the Caps walked away with two points. Sasha Semin stunned the Canes with a gorgeous slap shot in the second period. The Canes responded before the end of the second. However, Orlov came out with a mission and scored a brilliant goal to seal the win for the Caps.
As usual, Vokoun was stellar in net. He came off his 8th straight start, which leaves fans wondering when Neuvy might start again. Nobody is complaining though. Semin scored his 11th goal of the season. Orlov scored his first career goal in his 25th career game. The Caps were 0/1 on the powerplay and 3/4 on the penalty kill.
