Bruce Boudreau: 'There's really only one goal'

With a win in Carolina tonight, the Caps can make all kinds of regular-season franchise history. But it should come as no surprise that the team isn't celebrating anything quite yet. "We're trying to keep it as even keel as we can, because there's really only one goal that we...

Boudreau: Caps 'know how much Alex means to the team'

Coach Bruce Boudreau said he wouldn't tell the Caps to "win one for Alex [Ovechkin]" as the captain serves a two-game suspension, but added that he doesn't have to. "They know how much he's done for them," Boudreau said. Here's a quick clip:...

Boudreau puts Caps through grueling practice

Capitals forward Mike Knuble had trouble remembering a practice this year that featured as much skating as Bruce Boudreau put his players through this morning at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Boudreau had steadily been ramping up the conditioning since the Capitals' non-Olympic players returned to the ice Wednesday after a 10-day...

Jason Chimera 'questionable,' Tom Poti out

As I mentioned here last night, I could not adjust my travel schedule to attend practice in Ottawa this morning. But I just caught up with some of the players and Coach Bruce Boudreau here in St. Louis. So here's a quick update: *Fourteen players took part in this morning's...

Caps suffer loss, injuries in Montreal

Tonight's 6-5 overtime loss at Bell Centre was a bit of a disaster for the Caps' defense and for sportswriters scrambling on snow deadlines. Since it's so late and the wireless here is on the fritz, I have to be really brief. Check out my web-only gamer, which has...

Boudreau: 'The minute I relax is the minute they relax'

Washington's Michal Neuvirth and Montreal's Carey Price each came off the ice first during their respective morning skates, so it looks like they'll be your starting netminders tonight at Bell Centre as the Caps look to tie the second-longest winning streak in NHL history. The big news this morning was...

To beat the snow, Caps seek shelter in... Canada?

It's not often an escape from winter weather involves a trip up to Canada, but that's exactly the situation in which the Capitals find themselves. The team held an early 9 a.m. practice in order to catch a flight to Montreal before the D.C. area is hit with another heavy...

Theodore to start; Backstrom set to return

Count Coach Bruce Boudreau among the thousands of local residents forced to stay in a hotel after losing power at his home during the snowstorm. But that still doesn't compare to what the Pens went through over the past 18 hours. After losing in Montreal on Saturday afternoon, they flew...

Boudreau on Caps' streak: 'It hasn't sunk in or done anything'

Jose Theodore appears set to start tonight at MSG tonight as the Caps look to extend their franchise-record winning streak to 12 games. The veteran goalie has been a big part of the team's recent success, winning a career-best eight straight games while posting a 1.93 goals against average and...

Boudreau likes his lines' chemistry

After spending a day away from the rink, the Caps returned to KCI this morning for an uptempo, systems-heavy practice. Everyone was in attendance with one notable exception: Semyon Varlamov. Varlamov, who's been sidelined since Dec. 7 with knee and groin muscle injuries, said Saturday morning that he planned on...

Jose Theodore vs. Brent Johnson

Caps vs. Pens. Alex vs. Sid. And, of course, Brent vs. his former teammates. Tonight's game has got it all. But since the first two rivalries have been done to death, let's talk about the other one, shall we? Brent Johnson spent the previous four seasons in Washington and was...

Boudreau: 'We don't want it to spin out of control'

For the second day in a row, Bruce Boudreau meant business. The coach started practice with about 10 minutes worth of sprints and end-to-end rushes -- and things never really slowed down. "If you're not going to work hard in the game, you're going to work hard in practice," Boudreau...

Boudreau talks tough

Sorry for the delay everyone, but I had to report and write a story for tomorrow's paper before blogging. Anyway, as you've no doubt read by now, Coach Bruce Boudreau still was stewing over the Caps' lopsided loss last night in San Jose - and today he sent a stern...
