The Washington Capitals are still all kinds of banged up for their Saturday afternoon match against the Vancouver Canucks.
Puck drop at 12:30 PM. Here’s the bloody list.
The Washington Capitals are still kind of a mess — what with their bazillion injuries and Garnet Hathaway’s loogiecrime. Nonetheless, they must play host the Vancouver Canucks for a matinee game at Capital One Arena.
The game starts 12:30 PM. Join me after for the recap.
The Washington Capitals were down 5-1 to the Vancouver Canucks with exactly 20:01 left to play in regulation. I’m here to tell you that those same Capitals beat the Canucks 6-5 in a shootout.
The Canucks out-shot the Caps 34 to 29 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 48 to 41.
The Washington Capitals wanted to quickly put their late collapse against the Oilers in the rear view and had an opportunity on Friday night to do so against the Vancouver Canucks. Also go Nats!
Evgeny Kuznetsov was the benefactor of some Canucks scrambling to kick things off. Brock Boeser grabbed the goal back soon after and Tim Schaller slotted another home shorthanded. Elias Pettersson sniped one home to give Vancouver a two goal lead, Schaller got his second out of mid air, and Virtanen made it five for the Nucks.
Kuznetsov put away a buzzer beater, Lars Eller got his own shortie to bring the Caps even closer, and Michal Kempny blasted two home soon after to tie things up.
Caps beat Canucks 6-5!
The Washington Capitals are still in Canada on their long road trip, making their way to the west coast to take on the Vancouver Canucks. Puck drop is at 10 PM on NBC Sports Washington Plus.
Here are your injuries.
The Washington Capitals dropped their fixture against the Edmonton Oilers last night in rather disappointing fashion. They will be able to rectify that disappointment immediately as they take on the Vancouver Canucks only a night later.
Puck drop is at 10 PM and I will have your late night recap again. Oh and the Nats are playing at home in the World Series.
Vancouver Canucks defender and DC legend Jay Beagle has scored his first goal the season in extremely typical Jay Beagle fashion:
Rad stick skills ✅
On Monday night, another one of the last remaining major restricted free agents signed.
The Vancouver Canucks announced they re-signed Brock Boeser to a three-year contract extension worth $5.875 million annually.
Last season, the 22-year old forward played 69 games (nice) and tallied 56 points (26 goals and 30 assists) for the season. Boeser will begin his fourth season in the NHL this year.
The NHL recently came out with a promotion campaign for NHL TV promising “no soap operas, just hockey.” Saturday, the Vancouver Canucks got in the Soap Opera Business.
Nearly three hours after the Oakland Raiders released the controversial Antonio Brown, the Canucks extended a Training Camp offer — albeit jokingly — to the star wide receiver.
Every year, the same thing happens no matter what venue the NHL Draft is held at.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman walks out on stage to give a speech and officially begin the event. Fans boo him loudly.
But this year, Bettman came prepared with a plan to try and get the Vancouver Canucks crowd on his side. It worked… but not for the reason he planned.
