Latest Jeff Schultz Items
Mike Knuble's most-recent goal for the Washington Capitals came Dec. 5 at the Florida Panthers, a drought of 31 games going into Thursday night's matchup with Winnipeg.
Every game day in 2012, Jeff Schultz has gotten to the rink and learned he wasn't playing. Twelve straight games, no injury and the defenseman couldn't crack the Washington Capitals' lineup. The team even called up Tomas Kundratek to make his NHL debut rather than play Schultz.
Tomas Kundratek thought his career was going nowhere in the New York Rangers' organization. Not only was he in the American Hockey League with the Connecticut Whale, but he wasn't playing a whole lot, either.
Jay Beagle was just itching to get back onto the ice. The Washington Capitals' forward hasn't played in a game since Oct. 13 when he suffered a concussion in a fight with Arron Asham, and it had been three weeks since he last skated.
Roman Hamrlik's play has raised the ire of fans for being responsible when opponents score on the Washington Capitals. His minus-10 rating and 18 penalty minutes haven't helped.
By the end of the night, Jason Chimera was the hero in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday at Verizon Center.
