By Becca H at Japers' Rink

After a tremendously hyped game against Pittsburgh and two days off for the holiday, the fact that the Caps came out a bit sluggish early on is to be somewhat expected. That they shook off the Christmas fog and got down to playing the kind of hockey we like to see out of them was a little less so - although one would hope it would become more normal with each passing game...

Recap: Penguins 3, Caps 2 (SO)
By Becca H at Japers' Rink

It's always a bit of a letdown when a game like this has to be decided by a gimmick. When an evenly played, highly competitive match between two heated rivals is forced to end with what is essentially a skills competition...yeah, it's a little anticlimactic...
