Jakub Vrana of the Washington Capitals had a big Friday night, scoring his first-ever NHL goal in his fifth career game. As Vrana spoke with reporters following the game, he was met with a big shaving cream surprise courtesy of Tom Wilson. Welcome to the NHL, rookie! Great job by Wilson. With just a towel and some shaving cream, Wilson was able to transform Vrana into Two-Face...

The NHL hasn’t decided whether or not they will allow players to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, but it has already been reported that there is a “strong negative sentiment” from the league’s owners. That negative view may represent the majority, but it doesn’t reflect the views of Washington Capitals owners Ted Leonsis. Hockey Headlines ...
The Washington Capitals may be looking for their third straight win, but their victories this past week have been far from pretty. They’ll likely look for a more secure win Friday when they take on the Buffalo Sabres, who they defeated in overtime fashion Monday. With a win Friday, Washington will re-tie Philadelphia for third in the Metropolitan division and be separated from...

Former Caps defenseman John Erskine didn't get the best goodbye in team history, as he sat out injured in his final season only for his NHL career to end after that.
The Capitals didn’t exactly end their overtime victory with a raucous celebration. No, instead Washington held a players-only meeting, still salty over blowing a three-goal lead. Nicklas Backstrom scored 1:36 into overtime, helping the Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 to avert a disastrous defeat Wednesday night. Justin Williams scored twice and Daniel Winnik also had a goal...

As the league has moved away from ridiculous celebrations, it is often left to the younger crowd to make up for the lameness of the players in the NHL. This little kid during the Capitals’ intermission has the right idea, celebrating like there isn’t a tomorrow. Micah, the little boy in the video, made the...
WASHINGTON (AP) Trailing by a goal, the Washington Capitals spent their second intermission venting about their poor play. Marcus Johansson used the rest of the game to lead the comeback. Johansson scored the tying goal late in the third period and got the winner midway through overtime to rally the Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. ''We talked in there, pulled...

There is a lot to be thankful for this holiday season, and the simple joys can be just as good, like kids dressed up as turkeys during intermission at the Washington Capitals’ game! These aren’t half-baked costumes either; they’re full-on fantastic outfits. Mites on Ice dressed up as Turkeys scoring goals! Can it be #CapsGiving every night? #RockTheRed pic.twitter.com/dkZppal8AV...
