Capitals goaltender Jose Theodore continues to cope with the pain from the death of his infant son in August, and somehow finds the focus required to achieve success on the ice:

*Michael Wilbon's not looking to make friends with Caps fans, I gather, based on his latest post about Sidney Crosby vs. Alex Ovechkin:
Capitals fans might as well stop with the argument that Ovechkin is a better player; sure he is a bigger scorer and more entertaining player. But he can't get his team past Crosby's teams and they're undeniable rivals and will be for the length of their careers. Right now, Ovechkin would need a telescope to see Crosby, who's that far ahead in this race.

Q: So you're not inclined to make a trade?
A: We've played really well this season. We have good players and they're well coached and we have good chemistry and I don't want to tinker with that too much. So I don't know if anything will develop. We'll see."
*Ovie is a trooper. He took three flights across the country late Sunday night and still showed up at practice in the morning, even though he didn't have to go. Hear that Wilbon?
