Topic - Keith Aucoin
He got chances with the Washington Capitals, including last season, but now Aucoin isn't just a call-up. Claimed off waivers by the Islanders, he has three goals and an assist in six games this year and is starting to show the kind of offense he can provide at the NHL level if given the chance.
Desperation was there from the hop Saturday afternoon, with the Washington Capitals looking nothing like a team that just lost to the New York Rangers in a marathon Game 3.
Don't call the trio of Mike Knuble, Keith Aucoin and Joel Ward the Washington Capitals' fourth line.
With the Metro underneath and so many events there beyond hockey Verizon Center, the ice surface there has been the subject of ridicule for quite some time. So it's enough of a concern on a normal day, but with the temperature expected to approach 90 degrees Monday, the chances of bad ice increase substantially.
"It's been pretty good. I think it's tough to say right now," Aucoin said. "We have three, four lines that can go out there and score every night. Me and Chris Bourque have been playing really well together. It makes it a lot easier when you have camaraderie with a guy like that. You can go out there and score."
"It's a big win," said forward Keith Aucoin, who scored his first NHL goal since 2009 on Saturday. "We've had a tough stretch and to win two games back-to-back like that, we haven't done that in a little while, so it was good, especially a hard road game tonight."
