SUNRISE, Fla. | Matt Bradley might have an opinion as to why the Washington Capitals’ season hasn’t gone as planned. As Karl Alzner’s dad, Gunther, said last week, “I think everybody does, don’t they?”

But the Florida Panthers forward who spent six seasons in Washington has bigger things to worry about and isn’t paying attention to the Caps’ struggles.


“Other than like their wins and losses, I haven’t been watching the games, so I don’t really know what’s been happening on the ice,” Bradley said Friday morning in the home locker room at BankAtlantic Center. “But they’ve got a lot of great players; they’ve got a lot of great people and they’ll figure it out.”

Bradley has moved into full Panthers mode saying the Caps are “the team we definitely have to watch out for.”

In fact, Bradley, who missed time with a concussion earlier this season and has three goals and five assists, insists he doesn’t watch Caps games at all.

“No I don’t,” he said. “I have a 2-year-old son, so I watch ‘Wonder Pets.’ “
