  • Late in the second period Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, linemates Troy Brouwer and Andre Burakovsky found themselves with a gift. The New York Rangers’ clearing attempt had struck Burakovsky’s chest at the blue line, which gave the Capitals forwards a two-on-one rush in a one-goal game. Burakovsky drew the initial attention of defenseman […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK — Another playoff game brought another controversial hit by the Capitals. Goaltenders Braden Holtby and Henrik Lundqvist both said the last few minutes of the game are like overtime. With less than 10 seconds remaining in a 1-1 game, the puck was in the corner with New York Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle. Washington […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK – The cheers came through the mirrored doors inside this Central Park hotel and rushed into the room called La Petite Salon, which happened to be located inside a larger room called Le Grand Salon, decorated with chandeliers and ceiling-to-carpet paintings. It was an odd location for the Washington Capitals to spend Friday […]... read more...

  • Grab a handful of the Washington Capitals’ most memorable moments during this still-young postseason — beer bottles crashing onto the ice at Nassau Coliseum, game-winning goals scored by Nicklas Backstrom and Joel Ward, either of Alex Ovechkin’s howitzers against the New York Rangers — and one stands out as the most gleeful. Saturday afternoon, there was forward […... read more...

  • To hear Coach Barry Trotz tell it, the reason the Washington Capitals have become so adept at rebounding after losses, at moving beyond disappointment and fixing their mistakes, comes from nothing more than the sinking feeling of watching another team celebrate. And in this way, they were not unlike any other NHL team, or professional sports team, for that matter. [̷... read more...

  • Grappling with an undisclosed injury, minor in nature according to the Washington Capitals but serious enough that they made an emergency recall for insurance, defenseman Tim Gleason participated without issue in Monday morning’s optional skate and said he would play in Game 3 against the New York Rangers. “Yes sir,” Gleason replied when asked if […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK – He would make a difference, Joel Ward kept reassuring himself, as though sheer positive affirmation could dispel the gloom. The go-ahead goal had dangled before him, blundered by New York Rangers forward J.T. Miller into the crease, and somehow Ward had shanked it off the post. He sat on the Washington Capitals’ […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK – Joel Ward stood outside the Washington Capitals’ bench, neck craned toward the Madison Square Garden video board, searching for confirmation of his miracle. As Thursday night’s game-winning goal, tapped through goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s legs with 1.3 seconds left before overtime, replayed for the stunned crowd, forward Curtis Glencross wrapped his arm arou... read more...

  • There was a brief pause Thursday morning as Alain Vigneault fielded one particular question during his media availability, and given the nature of the query — “How much of a tone for the series does Game 1 set?” — the New York Rangers’ head coach could have been forgiven for offering a blunt response. “It’s Game 1,” he said... read more...

  • NEW YORK — As soon as New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk desperately swung his stick while on his stomach, improbably knocking away the puck on Alex Ovechkin’s shot, the matchup of the Islanders’ top defensive pairing against the Washington Capitals’ top forwards became a subplot of the seven-game first-round series. The Capitals now face another […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK – They couldn’t be stationed further apart on the Madison Square Garden ice, the two masked men tending opposite nets, and yet the matchup between Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and his counterpart, the New York Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist, will command the spotlight when the Eastern Conference semifinals begin here Thursday night. Even […]... read more...

  • NEW YORK—Alex Ovechkin scored a league-leading 53 regular-season goals, so his Capitals teammates have long passed the point of surprise when he makes a dazzling play or shoots a laser into the net. But even by those standards, his goal in the third period Saturday was special. “That was a big-time goal,” Washington Coach Barry […]... read more...

  • More than halfway through a first-period penalty kill Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, a goalmouth scrum stacked several bodies outside the blue paint, so when the puck slipped free, forward Troy Brouwer cranked it up the wall. He would later watch the replay and realize he had more time, but with such chaos behind […]... read more...

  • After his first and possibly only practice with the Washington Capitals during the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs, defenseman Nate Schmidt entered the locker room and wrapped a team official in a massive, sweaty hug.
