Michal Neuvirth gets his first consecutive starts of the season, but will Mike Green and Brooks Laich be in the lineup?
Capitals coach Adam Oates says San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton is an 'excellent' example of what Caps rookie Tom Wilson can be become.
The Capitals have until midnight tonight to make some key roster decisions.
In a 2-1 game, Aaron Volpatti and Adam Hall got into it on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. Watch the video of their fight here.
The Capitals' Christmas video shows off some of the extraordinary musical talents of Washington's favorite hockey team.
The Capitals are hoping Marty Erat and Dmitry Orlov can increase their trade value against the Islanders, who have lost eight of their last 10.
In moves made over the past week, they've gotten much tougher. First they claimed Aaron Volpatti off waivers and then signed Steve Oleksy, adding two fighters and altering the dynamic of the roster.
Volpatti's presence as a fighter and agitator is important if for no other reason than it frees up forward Matt Hendricks and defenseman John Erskine to do other things.
The 27-year-old has just three goals and one assist in 54 NHL games. But Volpatti has 81 penalty minutes in that time, including 11 fights.
Volpatti said he's not quite 100 percent, but Capitals coach Adam Oates said Green, Erskine and Grabovski are all cleared to play and will be available when the Caps return to action Thursday, Feb. 27 against the Florida Panthers.
Volpatti pointed out that every player in the NHL has been a top player on his team at some point in his career.
