There are some days when the Caps insist on making the high-risk play instead of taking the simpler, safer route.
If Jason Chimera plans on continuing his 33-goal pace, he might want to start working on his goal celebrations.
We may never know for sure, but its a pretty safe bet Alex Semin would have returned to the lineup tonight against the Winnipeg Jets even if Joel Ward had not forgotten to set his alarm clock.
Its far too early to say the Capitals power play is backon track. In fact, that might not be the case until Mike Green is back on theice quarterbacking it.
