    HARRIS: Capitals have some problems, but Tom Wilson isn't one

    One thing the Caps don't have to do is wonder if they made the right decision to keep 19-year-old Tom Wilson on their roster. A small sample size to be sure with only four games, but Wilson is giving them their money's worth so far.

    HARRIS: Vincent Lecavalier, Matt Hendricks should top Capitals' shopping list

    Caps and Rangers get bonus time off before opening Stanley Cup playoffs

    Adam Oates walked into the locker room after the Washington Capitals' final regular-season game Saturday night and told captain Alex Ovechkin he wanted to meet with players after they spoke to reporters. The coach wanted to make sure his guys were prepared to face the New York Rangers in the playoffs beginning Tuesday.
