Watching Hershey Hockey with Mr. Hockey
By pucksandbooks at On Frozen Blog

Keeping stats for a hockey team may not seem like much of a glamor job, but it has its perks. For instance, being in the Giant Center press box when Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, makes an unexpected visit. That’s precisely what happened for Hershey Bears’ stats helper Jess Mikula late last month, one Sunday evening before the Bears hosted the Norfolk Admirals...

Pittsburgh fans and Ovechkin
By Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog

I think it's pretty well-documented that Caps fans have a certain fascination with Sidney Crosby, from the Pacifier handouts to the signs and jerseys to the photoshopped posters to the urinal-cake art to even more t-shirts, etc...

Sittin' at the End of the Bar
By The Peerless at The Peerless Prognosticator

Washington Was All About Hockey on This January Thursday Night
By The OFB Team at On Frozen Blog

In somewhat unexpected fashion, hockey sure seemed to blow up around town yesterday. Late Thursday morning Dan Steinberg began generating a great volume of great dispatches from Pittsburgh. You should read every single one of them. His Post colleague Tarik via Twitter reported never before encountering so massive a media following for a regular season hockey game.

Postgame Notebook: Capitals 6, Penguins 3
By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at WashingtonCaps.com

Seventy in Fifty – It was just another regular season game in mid-January. But it was also against the defending Stanley Cup champions. And it was against the team that ousted Washington from the Stanley Cup playoffs last spring.

The Caps came to play tonight, and it showed. They came out hard and strong, and worked their way past a few speed bumps on their way to an impressive 6-3 win over the Penguins...

Selected by the Washington Capitals at the tail end of the 2008 draft in Ottawa (204th overall to be exact), and developing into a real agitator with leadership qualities, and a bit of a scoring touch, winger Stefan Della Rovere may have been the last of the unplucked gems that summer,...

So I Heard There Was a Hockey Game Tonight?
By Hockey Mom at Musings Of A Hockey Mom

Yep, only one of the biggest, most-hyped regular season match ups between two of the most bitter rivals in the NHL. The Capitals visit Mellon Arena and the much-disliked Pittsburgh Penguins tonight for the first meeting of the season...

The Bluechip Options in Net Are Numerous
By pucksandbooks at On Frozen Blog

Though unable to track down John Carlson in Hershey last weekend I managed to see Braden Holtby start both weekend home games in the Bears’ net. I’d never seen Holtby perform in person, and I was well aware of the mega-buzz he’d been generating the last two hockey seasons, and so I was thrilled at the chance to get to see him...

Theo Saves the Day as Caps Squeak Past Red Wings
By Hockey Mom at Musings Of A Hockey Mom

For the better part of last night's hockey game, the Washington Capitals got schooled by the former Stanley Cup champion Red Wings. They were outshot and outhustled, missing too many opportunities to crash the net and to clear the puck out of Jose Theodore's grill. But luckily for the home team, Theo...

A TWO-point night: Caps 3 - Red Wings 2
By The Peerless at The Peerless Prognosticator

Can you give all three stars to one guy?
