Ovechkin's New Ride

While it's not nearly as sleek as his $250,000 Mercedes supercar, Alex Ovechkin will soon slide behind the wheel of something hockey fans can really appreciate: a Zamboni. I was informed earlier today that the two-time MVP will pilot a Zamboni down 6th Avenue in New York on Wednesday, complete...

Clark Back at Full Strength, Finally

(John McDonnell -- The Washington Post) [Edit: Check out this post from Bog Boy on the Caps' attendance last season. Spoiler: It was good.] It's been a while since Chris Clark could claim to be 100 percent healthy. But that's exactly how the Caps captain described himself Thursday after...

Ovechkin Set to Promote Video Game in New York

That cooking thing is off (if it was even on at any point), as far as we know, but Alex Ovechkin will be hitting up the Big Apple next week to promote NHL 2K10. If it's even half as entertaining as his Las Vegas appearance for 2k Sports, it's probably...

Line Combos on Boudreau's Mind

Will Mike Knuble skate alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom? Or will Alexander Semin prove to be a better fit as the Caps' first-line right wing? Who plays left wing on the second line? Tomas Fleischmann or Brooks Laich? And where does a (finally) healthy Chris Clark fit into the...

Green's Crib to be Featured on MTV

Last week, Mike Green launched a new website, www.greenlife52.com. This week, I'm hearing MTV is scheduled to tape a segment for 'Cribs' at his condo. Based on what I know about Green's interest in fashion, interior design, art and exotic sports cars, I think fans are going to enjoy getting...

Caps Name Assistant Coach

The Caps' coaching staff is set. The team has filled its vacant coaching job from within, naming Blaine Forsythe assistant coach/video, GM George McPhee said. Forsythe was an amateur scout for the Caps last season, but has previously served as Washington's video coach, holding the title in 2006-07 and 2007-08....

It's Almost That Time

With less than a week to go until the start of rookie camp and only two weeks from the start of main camp, several Caps and prospects are at Kettler this morning for some up-tempo drills and a half-rink scrimmage. On the ice are Brendan Morrison, Jose Theodore, John Erskine,...
