Caps Strike First in Win against Islanders
By Hockey Mom at Musings Of A Hockey Mom

Prior to tonight, the Caps had won four in a row at Nassau Coliseum and were 5-0-1 here since the start of the 2007-08 season. Four of those six games were decided in overtime, two of them on overtime goals by Alex Ovechkin. Well wouldn’t you know that the Great8 had a hand in getting his team on the board first, feeding the puck to an awaiting Jason Chimera in front of the crease at 3:41 in the opening period...

White Queen, More!

By Josh Wigler at MTV's Splash Page

...These photos clearly emphasize the film's 1960s setting, both in terms of set design, hair and makeup and costuming work. But as impressive as this first look at "First Class" might be, it sounds like the atmosphere on set is nothing short of hectic...

Groundhog Day
By Joe Beninati (Capitals Play-by-Play) at CSN - Washington, DC

So many of these games play out in similar fashions, it’s hard to keep them separate. Stop me when you’ve heard this before...the Caps gave up the first goal...the Caps fell behind by two...the Caps rallied like crazy to come back and tie the score...only to see it end in the worst way in overtime...

The Hardest Working Man, Not on Skates (Part 1)
Posted by Andrew Tomlinson at On Frozen Blog

[OFB note: Last week HockeyWashington endured a shock and a setback with word that Caps' Media Relations Maestro Nate Ewell was leaving early next month to return to a top communications post in college hockey -- his first love. We'd been working with Nate over some months to generate a profile of his background and remarkable achievements with the Caps, foremost among them perhaps the team's virtual lock on the Dillman Award, handed out at the end of each season to the best PR team in the NHL. Hockey is ascendant in Washington in part because of the Capitals' embrace of new media, and Nate's been a central figure in building a league-best blogosphere here. No hockey blog in D.C. has benefited more from Nate's commitment and enthusiasm for new media than OFB. He will be especially missed by us. Below is the first of a two-part profile of our favorite hockey communicator.]...

Corey Masisak Bids D.C. Farewell
Posted at Japers' Rink

[Corey Masisak is now officially a New Yorker, and our collective loss is's gain. Below are his parting words to Caps fans.]...

...I wanted to write this letter to thank all of you for being incredible throughout each of the four years that I've covered the Caps, but especially for the past year. It would have been completely understandable for fans to see that I wasn't writing as regularly as I had in the past (and when I did it was for so many different publications that it was hard to keep track) and either stop reading or at least not as frequently. The amount of support and feedback, whether it was on twitter, email or in the comments on this site, was amazing and something I'll never forget...

Better late than never

Recap: Canucks 4, Caps 2
By Becca H at Japers' Rink

With both teams coming off of shutout losses and both teams possessing some serious firepower (albeit somewhat dormant on the Washington side of the ledger), the expectations for this one were that it would be a great all-around game - fast-paced, stars being stars, perhaps some great goaltending to back it up...

Recap: Lightning 3, Caps 0
By Becca H at Japers' Rink

Last night the Caps rebounded from a three-goal deficit, gaining momentum as the game went on and forcing overtime before ultimately falling to the Panthers. Falling into a similar hole against the Lightning, there was no such come-from-behind magic lurking tonight, as the Caps looked flat from the start and never generated anything that looked remotely close to sustained offensive pressure...
