The Caps have not been playing well lately, but maybe a game in Jersey is just what they need to get back on track.
Okay, I’ve got good news. Yeah, yeah, the Capitals are playing like irradiated toilet trash lately and Alex Ovechkin has decided to stay at 699 goals forever because he says it is “nice”, but today the Washington Capitals will play a team so bad that they might win without actually playing any better.
The New Jersey Devils are hosting the boys today at 1 PM. My favorite friend, Chris Cerullo, has the recap.
Without explanation, the Washington Capitals have suddenly become bad. In today’s podcast, Peter and Ian try to wrap their smooth smooth brains around the complicated problem of “what happens when your team starts sucking out of nowhere?”
The pre-deadline trades keep coming, and here’s one that might pique your interest. The Vegas Golden Knights have just cleared a bunch of salary cap space by trading ex-Caps forward Cody Eakin to the Winnipeg Jets. Darren Dreger first reported the news.
Here’s some interesting scuttlebutt for your pre-deadline news cycle. On Thursday’s 31 Thoughts podcast, Elliotte Friedman reviewed each team and what their priorities may be as we approach the trade deadline on Monday, February 24. When he got to the Caps, things got real juicy.
Not only are the Caps interested in trading defender Nick Jensen, they may want ex-Cap Mike Green back from Detroit.
billionth sixth straight year, the Washington Capitals have added a defender at the trade deadline. This year’s model is Brenden Dillon, a 29-year-old named for the two best male characters on Beverly Hills 90210.
Dillon’s an interesting player, but how the Caps might deploy him is even more interesting.
Our own Cara Bahniuk was in Las Vegas this week for Washington’s ignominious loss to the Golden Knights. But it wasn’t all defeat. Depending on how these bets go, it might end up having been a pretty profitable trip. For me, at least.
Yeah, I dunno. The Washington Capitals didn’t do hockey very well against the Vegas Golden Knights. The only reason that we have anything interesting to talk about right now is because TJ Oshie pulled some hero moves in the third period.
So, a buncha guys scored. Most of them wore the uniform that wasn’t the Caps, except for TJ Oshie, who’s horny for donuts. Those Vegas goal-scorers were usually pretty close to the Caps’ net, which had a Holtby in it, and he is trying so hard. Everything was very bleak, and then Oshie got those two goals, which is like when you find twenty dollars but you’re so blackout drunk on White Claw that you will never remember it.
Anyway, the Caps lost.
