Latest Dale Hunter Items
The life span of an NHL coach is short, based on lack of success and the idea that his voice stops being heard.
Alex Ovechkin hasn't been a stranger to physical play this season, oftentimes using hits to try to make a difference in games. With goals not coming as frequently as he would like, though, the Washington Capitals captain made it known that he's paid to score and not just hit.
Switching coaches on the fly in the middle of a season presents plenty of challenges. Dale Hunter has made changes to just about everything since taking over the Washington Capitals on Nov. 28 — perhaps none with more of a tactical difference than on defense.
Matt Hendricks tried to make the most of his return to Colorado and return to the Washington Capitals lineup. The gritty forward who began his NHL career with the Avalanche missed four straight games with a knee injury before getting back on the ice Saturday night.
Three goals. Three games. One win thrown into the mix to engender some optimism, but the Washington Capitals seem to be lacking answers for what's wrong on offense.
Just as the team promised, injured defenseman Mike Green joined the Washington Capitals in Colorado. But the plan was for him to skate, too — something that did not happen Saturday morning.
Tomas Vokoun was understandably frustrated about his game earlier this week following a rough performance — four goals on 21 shots — against the Philadelphia Flyers. The veteran Washington Capitals goaltender said he knows himself pretty well — and that getting right back between the pipes to atone for his mistakes might not be the best thing.
Progress. That's what the Washington Capitals have wanted while still in the early stages of Dale Hunter's regime as coach. Defense was supposed to turn into offensive chances, so patience was a necessary virtue at the start.
Alex Ovechkin scored with 1:14 left, and Michal Neuvirth made 26 saves for his first shutout of the season in the Washington Capitals' 1-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
