And I don't blame him. He was never going to get more than a 5-8 games in DC. The Caps are all about evenly rolling four lines this season and King just isn't skilled enough to be on the ice for 15 minutes a game.

Cody Eakin was recalled from the Bears today. It looks like he'll replace Halpern (healthy scratch) tonight as the 4C. He has the potential to be a big part of the future so it'll be interesting to see how he looks.

I think we've figured out the problem with No. 8. He's gotten all domesticated:

Not sure what to think. It's hard to analyze a game when one team spends so much time in the box.

But if the Caps can bottle the energy they had in that third period they might have something.

Let's hope this is a portent of things to come:

I think there are too many road games left for this team to make the playoffs. Hunter has done nothing to improve the team. They had a better record under potty mouth.

Caps played well against FLA last night. Even though the final score was only 2-1, I thought the Caps pretty much dominated the game. They took way more shots and played most of the game in the Panther's zone.

It was Knuble's best game of the year IMO. He was creating havoc in the crease by getting in Theodore's face and generally making opponents feel the pain. He's lost two steps but he'll always be a smart player.

Epic win tonight. Ovie with the GWG in OT. Brouwer with two goals to take the 8th spot from Winnipeg.

When it looked like it was going to be a second straight shut out at home to the lowly Isles, I was ready to go kick GMGM in the throat for not trading Knuble. I still don't get why he didn't but that ending was fantastic, especially since my in-laws are Lawn Guylanders who pretend to be Isles fans when they beat the Caps.

Kuznetsov ain't coming over next year, if ever. Little prick. You think you're so good but you don't want to compete against the greatest players in the world?

UGH! There goes a #%!ing hundred point player. Get get rid of the Semin headache and we get another one. GMGM has to go.

That is definitely bad news. I was redaing in the post today about how rookie contracts are limited in the NHL and the Russian teams could actually offer him far more $$$.

He'll get more now but he'd get a lot more in the NHL later. Also how could a player refuse the opportunity to try and win the Stanley CUP?!

Screw him and his hat tricks and 9 point games.

As if this season hasnt sucked enough, it looks like Hunter, the Caps sucking and Ovi becoming average all played a part in his decision.
