Good Signs Down on the Farm

Chris Bourque scored 18 seconds into last night’s Hershey Bears’ exhibition game against Norfolk, and the Bears would get goals from five others in the 6-2 triumph. Hershey is now 3-0 in preseason, and like the Caps, closes out the preseason slate Sunday evening at 5:00, with a Giant Center date with Wilkes Barre-Scranton. An […]

More Cuts Made Yesterday?

We have not received official word from the Capitals, but per Tarik El-Bashir: “Defensemen Jame Pollock and Josef Boumedienne and forward Joe Motzko were waived yesterday. Should they clear, they are expected to join the Bears. . . .” Update @ 2:40pm: The Capitals have announced they have assigned Joe Motzko to Hershey. Jame Pollock […]

Knee-jerk Reactions: Preseason vs. Philadelphia

Channel 1000 popping up, strange bounces, shaky goal-tending, and a furious comeback featuring 5 straight goals — doesn’t sound like your typical preseason game. It’s the preseason, as we keep being told, so it doesn’t mean anything in the long run, but Tom Poti’s turnover leading to Philadelphia’s first goal looked somewhat Goncharian. It can […]

The Quebeqois Offensive Dynamo Is at It Again

Mathieu Perreault enjoyed what you might term a productive Friday night: 1 goal and 5 assists in Acadie Bathurst’s 9-2 mauling of Drummondville. Perreault has skated in three of Acadie Bathurst’s four games in the early going of the new Q season, and he’s recorded 3 goals and 6 assists. In two of his three […]

Caps Picked 1st in SE

The Hockey News web columnist Adam Proteau has been offering a breakdown of each division with his predicted order of finish. Today, he breaks down the Southeast Division, where he picks the Caps 1st. Why 1st? Because dammit, what would a pre-season NHL prediction series be without at least one shocker pick for a new, […]

"Bettman Stripes"

Paul Lukas of Uni Watch posted an article today that focuses on the NHL’s new uniforms. It’s a good read–particularly this excerpt regarding the “apron-like” piping down the sides of some new jerseys (including the Capitals’): Worst thing to happen to hockey since Gary Bettman became commissioner. In fact, since this happened on his watch […]

A Well-Built Band of Brothers

What most caught my attention during last night’s 2-1 exhibition loss to the Flyers while listening to the ‘Net call of Kolbe and Vogel was word that despite an off-day the following day, superstar forwards Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin hopped in a car earlier in the day and journeyed up to Philly to watch […]
