    Capitals - Team News
    Alex Ovechkin - W
    Alex Ovechkin struggled on Saturday despite scoring the winning goal in the shootout. Coach Barry Trotz asked assistant coach Blaine Forsythe who should take the third shot and Forsythe said Ovechkin. Ovechkin was only two-for-16 last season in the shootout...

    Dmitry Orlov - D
    Dmitry Orlov said on Saturday that he has a lot more flexibility in his wrist. Orlov underwent off-season surgery on his wrist which was broken during the World Championships in May. It is a lot better than two weeks ago according to Orlov so he could...

    Brooks Laich - C
    Brooks Laich suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury Saturday night. The Capitals winger collided with Panthers forward Shawn Thornton. He played 13:25 and had two shots on goal before departing. Laich has missed 70 games over the past two...

    Jason Chimera - W
    Jason Chimera tickled the twine for the Capitals in their 2-1 shootout win against the Panthers... Chimera’s goal was his first point of the season. Though he had a solid night with five shots on goal and two penalty minutes, he’s nothing but a depth forward for...

    Justin Peters - G
    Justin Peters made 20 saves in the Capitals’ 2-1 shootout win Saturday night. The Capitals just might have their goaltending situation figured out this season. Braden Holtby has the ability to be a very good number one, while Peters fits the mold as a...

    Alex Ovechkin - W
    Alex Ovechkin has taken to heart playing in the defensive zone for perhaps the first time in... Ovechkin has always been lacking in his own zone but that is not the case this season under new head coach Barry Trotz. "There were times in the past where he would be...

    Dmitry Orlov - D
    Dmitry Orlov (wrist) is still not practicing with the Washington Capitals. The broken wrist the defenseman suffered during the World Championships in May was apparently a bad one, and he was having difficulty even handling a stick recently. There...

    Evgeny Kuznetsov - C
    Evgeny Kuznetsov has been seeing time on the fourth line this season. Kuznetsov has been playing alongside Liam O'Brien and Chris Brown, not exactly Wayne Gretzky and Jari Kurri of the current NHL. But Kuznetsov is averaging less than a dozen...
    Oct 18 10:38AM Read More
    Justin Peters - G
    Look for Justin Peters to get a start in net for Washington in the next two games. Braden Holtby has played well between the pipes for the Capitals but coach Barry Trotz needs to get Peters some game action. "In the next two games, how’s that?"...
    Oct 18 10:33AM Read More
    Jay Beagle - W
    Jay Beagle (upper body) is close to returning to action. Beagle has yet to suit up this season and his delay in getting into the lineup has been the excellent play of the fourth line. Coach Barry Trotz does not need to rush him...
    Oct 18 10:31AM Read More
    Tom Wilson - W
    Tom Wilson (ankle) could return to action in as early as a week. Wilson broke his ankle in a freak accident in the off-season and the feisty winger is getting close to a return. He should be good for 10 points this season with 130-140...
    Oct 18 10:20AM Read More
    Brooks Orpik - D
    Brooks Orpik had two assists in Washington's 6-2 win on Thursday. It was Orpik's first and second points of the 2014-15 campaign. He's more of a defensive defenseman and consequently doesn't have much value in standard leagues.

    Mike Green - D
    Mike Green continued his hot start to the season with two assists in Washington's 6-2 win over... Green now has two goals and five points in three games during the first week of the season. The up-and-down blueliner who had 76 points in 75 games in 2009-10 only had 57...

    Braden Holtby - G
    Braden Holtby and the Caps cruised to a 6-2 victory over the Devils on Thursday night, as the... Holtby has been superb this season, save for a brief, forgettable performance on Tuesday night versus San Jose. The Lloydminster, Sask. native is 2-0-1 this season with a...
    Oct 16 11:42PM Read More
    Troy Brouwer - W
    Troy Brouwer practiced alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on Wednesday. That's quite an upgrade over Brouwer's old linemates of Andre Burakovsky and Marcus Johansson. The Capitals lines are bound to change frequently over the course of the...
