The Caps were coming into town with three consecutive wins against Eastern Conference rivals and continued their dominance of the NHL as they defeated the Preds 5-3. With Marcus Johansson returning to the lineup, the Caps found their groove as the third and fourth lines produced both Washington goals in this game.

The Washington Capitals played their second game in two days today. After defeating the New Jersey Devils, the Caps flew back to DC to face off against the Philadelphia Flyers this afternoon.

Carey, Carrick Recalled, Ness, Sill Reassigned to Bears

 The Washington Capitals have recalled forward Paul Carey and defenseman Connor Carrick from the AHL Hershey Bears. They have reassigned Zach Sill and Aaron Ness to the Bears after pulling them up earlier this week. Carey has appeared in two games for the Caps this season, while Carrick has played in three. I’d assume these moves are being made to get an idea of what the team will need further down the road this season.

Burakovsky’s Game Further Improves in Capitals’ Win Over Isles

The Washington Capitals were looking to get back in the win column this Thursday night against the New York Islanders. Captain Alexander Ovechkin returned to the lineup after serving a one-game suspension for opting-out of the the All Star festivities this past weekend. Goaltender Braden Holtby also returned, manning his spot between the pipes after resting in Washington’s 5-2 loss to the Florida Panthers this past Tuesday. The Islanders were looking for vengeance in their first return to the Verizon Center since their Game 7 loss in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals last year, but the Capitals had something else planned for their Metropolitan Division foes. It was a close game that saw the league leaders come out on top with a 3-2 victory. Read the rest of this entry »

Caps Recall Ness From Hershey

The Washington Capitals announced earlier today that they have recalled defenseman Aaron Ness from the Hershey Bears. Ness made his debut with the Caps on January 2nd against the Columbus Blue Jackets and has tallied two assists in eight games played for Washington this season. In his 32 games played with AHL Bears, Ness has put up 15 points, two of those being goals, 13 from assists. With Brooks Orpik’s return to the ice still pending and John Carlson getting back into the swing of things, it will be good to get the extra blue-liner back into the lineup.

Without Alexander Ovechkin and Braden Holtby, the Caps never stood a chance against the red-hot Florida Panthers.
