Another Defining Moment in a Special Season
By The OFB Team at On Frozen Blog

It was one of the more improbable comebacks in Washington Capitals’ history. Down 3-0 entering the third period today to one of the best lineups in hockey, and with the world’s best player banished from their lineup early on, the Caps summoned 20 of the gutsiest minutes of their season in Sunday’s final frame, knotting the game at 3 thanks to a stirring three minutes of overwhelming dominance, going on to prevail 4-3 in overtime before a suddenly sullen United Center sellout and a national television audience...

Postgame Notebook: Capitals 4, Blackhawks 3, OT
By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at

Wearing Down the Weary – For the first 39 minutes or so of Sunday’s Caps-Hawks morning match, there wasn’t much reason to believe the visitors would be packing two points on the team charter later in the day. But anyone who’s watched the Capitals with regularity this season knows not to count them out. Washington scored three third-period goals in the span of just 2:16 and got an overtime game-winner from Nicklas Backstrom to skate off with a victory over the Blackhawks...

Alonso and Ferrari romp to victory in Bahrain
Posted at

Fernando Alonso drove a superbly judged race to emulate Nigel Mansell and Kimi Raikkonen, as he sped to victory on his debut for Ferrari in Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix. Alonso chased Sebastian Vettel’s fleet Red Bull fruitlessly in the early stages, when both were running the super-soft Bridgestone tyres, but had an advantage after they had respectively switched to the harder compound on Laps 17 and 16...

Cherie Currie: A Queen Of Noise Again
By mdome at Classic Rock

Former Runaways vocalist Cherie Currie is planning a return to music, thanks to the upcoming Runaways biopic.

Working with Joan Jett again, and coaching Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart (the actresses who play the Currie and Jett roles in the film) has rekindled the spark for more rock ‘n’ roll action...

The Importance of Being "Earnest"
By Usually Frustrated Caps Fan at Mark's Musings

Over the past three evenings and yesterday the Washington Capitals have played in only one hockey game - Friday night - that they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 3 - 2 in regulation. However during that time span they managed to a) clinch their third division title in a row, and b) put some additional breathing room between themselves and a couple of folks who are chasing them for playoff positioning and the NHL regular season championship...

Windy City Showdown
By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at

After going 3-1-1 on a five-game homestand, Washington hits the road for a four-game, eight-day trip. The first stop is Windy City, where the Caps will stare down one of the heavyweights of the Western Conference in the Chicago Blackhawks...

Exclusive Vettel Q&A: Pole a surprise, but not down to luck
Posted at

After taking the opening pole position of the year, Sebastian Vettel’s 2010 season couldn’t have started better. And with Vettel convinced it’s an indication of the RB6’s very real performance advantage, rather than good fortune, the young German could be a world champion in the making...

Timo Glock Q&A: Virgin aiming to beat Lotus
Posted at

At the last test session in Barcelona, Virgin’s Timo Glock correctly predicted that Saturday afternoon in Bahrain would be a short affair for him. But while Glock failed to make it through to Q2, he at least ended the season's opening qualifying session as the fastest runner from this year’s trio of new teams...

Lisa Hillary Sits Down with Ted Leonsis
Posted by The OFB Team at On Frozen Blog

In a two-part interview series Comcast Sportsnet’s Lisa Hillary visited with Capitals’ majority owner Ted Leonsis this week and honed in on some real meat and potatoes issues with him: his satisfaction level with where the Caps are in the league and locally, the participation of NHLer’s in the Olympics, past and future, his role with the team at the trade deadline. There’s no such thing as a dull interview with Leonsis because he doesn’t speak in cliches, he doesn’t evade, he is ever deeply reflective, and he manages to embody a 400-level fan’s perspective...
