'Ovechkin, Overjoyed at 60'

Brashear Out Tonight vs. Atlanta

Morning skates are usually lighthearted, featuring lots of horseplay and plenty of chirping amongst the players. That was not the case at Philips Arena an hour ago. The Caps are under a lot of pressure, probably needing to win five or six of their final seven games. The serious mood,...

Boudreau Calls Off Practice (Updated)

I rushed from the airport to Philips Arena, scrambled to the media room and fired up my laptop so I could provide you with an update on the Caps in the aftermath of last night's 5-0 loss in Chicago. But, unfortunately, that's not going to happen. Coach Bruce Boudreau has...

Ovechkin Set for Chicago

I'm not going to make it to Chicago in time for the morning skate, which I'm told will be very lightly attended anyway. I've received a few emails from concerned fans about the status of Alex Ovechkin's foot after his Quintin Laing impression in the first period of last night's...

Clark Aiming to Play on Trip

Today's practice was very optional, with many players choosing to head straight for the airport. The Caps play their next six games away from Verizon Center, beginning with tomorrow night's contest in Nashville. Chris Clark was among the players who did skate, and afterward the team captain confirmed that he...
