Caps Recall Bourque

With Boyd Gordon (broken finger) and Quintin Laing (torn spleen) sidelined, the Caps have recalled Chris Bourque from Hershey. I just bumped into him in the lobby of the hotel as he arrived from Lowell, Mass.

Bourque, who has played six games with Washington this season, is the AHL's 15th leading scorer with 18 goals and 61 points in 60 games with the Bears.

I'll check in from the morning skate later this morning.

I'm sure the Caps will get great effort from Bourque.

I really like Borque's speed and energy (Aucoin's too for the matter).

It's great that we're one of (if not THE) biggest teams in the NHL, but it's pretty obvious some nights how much faster/quicker other teams are than us. I'm sure that contributes to some of the penalties we accrue.

As long as our team doesn't get paralyzed by their mistakes (and they will happen), then we should be okay. Welcome aboard, Bourque! Goo, Caps!

With Bourque on board the Caps will have three lines that can score.
Its rough news on Laing, but Bourque will show why he should have been with the club since camp.

I watched all the Caps games with Bourque and hes indeed a breakaway machine but he should score more often on those.
Probably Osala is next in line for recalling.

Hope Green is okey to play.

I've got to say that it must be a discouraging year for Bourque. He really wanted to make the team this year and had an excellent camp, yet spent the whole year in the AHL again with an exception of a few short stints with the Caps. I have a feeling that he might look elsewhere next year.
