By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at

Twice As Nice – The Caps trailed 2-1 after 40 minutes of Wednesday’s game with Pittsburgh, but came back to take a 3-2 third-period lead. A late Pens goal sent the game to overtime and then to a shootout, and Pittsburgh took a 2-0 lead in the skills competition, scoring on each of its first two shots. But the comeback Caps came back again, scoring on three straight shots to send Pittsburgh to a 4-3 shootout setback...

Boudreau discusses Sidney Crosby's scuffle
By Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog

"You know, it's kind of hard not to like the bad guy," one of the hosts said after the segment. "He's the bad guy, and we like him."

The coach and the Pittsburghers did have a disagreement on one thing, though. You can probably guess what that one subject was...

Heavy braking - stopping a car with a 2010 fuel load
Posted at

When the refuelling ban was first announced for 2010, one of the main concerns was how to make sure brakes could last a Grand Prix distance. A full tank of fuel adds around 150 kg of weight to the car, and it requires considerably more energy to slow down that extra weight. It seemed that the brakes would be in for a tough time in 2010...

How to Wash Crosby's Face Video
By tj at Alex Ovetjkin

Paul Kukla asks: "Someone Want To Count The Crosschecks?"

Ok, Paul, I counted three and one more after it was over.

The refs missed all of them since the cross-checks were coming from NHL's poster boy. And what's up with picking on a smaller Zetterberg? Why not to try Todd Bertuzzi? Last year it was Malkin (6'3") who tried to beat up Henrik and he couldn't! Go, Zatta!...

Ten games left, ten things to watch
By The Peerless at The Peerless Prognosticator

We are down to it now – ten games or so left in the regular season. There is no mystery about where the Caps will finish the year. Absent being spirited away by aliens, they will win the Southeast Division (already clinched), they will win the Eastern Conference (16 points ahead of Pittsburgh with ten games to play), and they will likely win the President’s Trophy (nine points ahead of Chicago and Phoenix with ten games left to play)...

The Caps Season So Far ... By the Numbers
By Usually Frustrated Caps Fan at Mark's Musings it seems like a good time to reflect on the season thus far, and that's what I've did late last night.

So by the numbers the Capitals are the #1team in the NHL in the following categories:...

On Playing Out the String
By pucksandbooks at On Frozen Blog

Seldom if ever have the Capitals had as many games to conclude the regular season that mean so little in the grand scheme of things as they do this spring. The Southeast division title was locked up not long after Valentine’s day, and effectively not long after Washington’s first blizzard this winter. The Caps began seriously pulling away from the rest of the Eastern conference immediately after the Olympic break. There’s still some mild drama related to the President’s trophy, and the Caps have never won that, but that’s almost a curse of sorts — in the 23 times the trophy has been awarded since 1985-86, only seven winners have gone on to claim the Stanley Cup...
