What a relief
By Joe Beninati - Capitals Play-by-Play

The long losing streak is over, thank goodness! The game didn't start so well over the first 20 minutes at ScotiaBank Place. Ottawa got the jump on the Capitals with a strong showing right from the outset...

Alice Cooper : "I'm So Happy That The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nomination Was For The Original Band"
Posted by Nightwatcher at Nightwatcher's House Of Rock

Rock AAA is reporting Alice Cooper says his original band have always been victims of the “misconception” they were more concerned with theatre than music – when the reverse was true. And their upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a good enough reason to reunite and play a series of major city shows...

Recap: Bruins 3, Caps 2
By J.P. at Japers' Rink

...Last Saturday night's loss to Colorado was seen by most as the best game the Caps had played during the streak - a step in the right direction. Then came Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. Wednesday night's Anaheim loss was better again. Then came Saturday night in Boston (which, after the first 20 minutes, looked pretty decent). But one step forward, one or two steps back isn't good enough. Atta boys for efforts don't erase eight losses in a row. Something has to change...

Matt Bradley, Always the Gentleman (Sorta)
By Elisabeth Meinecke at On Frozen Blog

...It’s a testament to a player’s desire to make it in the NHL that Bradley altered his game from a guy who didn’t have to fight to become a give-it-all-you-got fourth-liner who scores points with fans by jumping to his teammates’ defense (case in point: last year’s classic duel with Steve Downie, where Bradley stepped in for Alex Ovechkin)...

HBO's 24/7 Capitals/Penguins: Road to the Winter Classic a Hit with Hockey Fans
By Hockey Mom at Musings Of A Hockey Mom

I always wonder what Gabby says in between periods in the locker room, especially when the boys aren't performing up to snuff. Well, sports fans got the real deal last night as they witnessed several of Boudreau's frustrated rants with an f-bomb inserted about every other word. Yep, hide yo wife, hide yo husband and definitely hide yo kids as Gabby's cussing everybody out up in here!...

Rink Roundtable: Bruce Boudreau's Job Security
Posted by David Getz at Japers' Rink

With an unimpressive playoff record to his credit and at the helm of a team with a "Cup or bust" approach, Bruce Boudreau wasn't going to have a whole lot of margin for error in the 2010-11 season, and now that the Capitals have hit a rough patch questions about his job security are starting to be asked - even to Boudreau himself. We know where Gabby stands on the issue, but we also thought we'd take a deeper look at a potential Capitals coaching change...

Recap: Rangers 7, Caps 0
By Becca H at Japers' Rink

It's hard to define "rock bottom" until you see what comes after it, because until it gets better there's no frame of reference. Still, losing a sixth straight game in such an embarrassing fashion has to be seen as something of a rock bottom point for this team - this team that is expected to do so much, this team that has all the talent in the world, not only failing to score but giving up a seven-spot to the Rangers...

Hope - I Have Hope - Despite The Final Score Tonight
By Usually Frustrated Caps Fan at Mark's Musings

So it was a "No Point Night" tonight for the Capitals at Verizon Center. They lost 3-2 in regulation to the Colorado Avalanche. Sure at the end of the season, whenever that occurs this coming spring we aren't likely to remember much about tonight's game. However, it was a good game. The Capitals fought hard - ALL 60 MINUTES...
