Morning roundup: Caps roll to new record

With last night's 4-1 victory over the Bruins -- thanks in part to the outstanding play of goalie Jose Theodore -- the Caps made history. Eleven games, 11 wins, and a whole lot of goals.

Was there ever any doubt Washington would find a way to win this one, even when Boston was up 1-0? Maybe, but the Caps themselves knew they'd find a way out:

"We didn't play really well, but we found a way to win, because they believed we could win," Coach Bruce Boudreau said. "When you're on a winning streak, you find ways, good things happen. When you're losing, you hit crossbars and the other goalie makes incredible saves like Theo did tonight." | Full story »
