Latest Mike Knuble Items
It turns out Mike Knuble still has plenty left at age 38, enough for the Washington Capitals to give him a one-year, $2 million contract extension.
The real season is almost here as the Capitals try to put last year's playoff flameout in the past. But before it all gets under way Wednesday night, the Washington Times' Stephen Whyno hands out some invisible hardware.
Mike Knuble comes from Michigan, not Napa Valley. But as long as he keeps producing for the Capitals, his coach’s comparison rings true.
Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Brett Hull, Mike Bossy, Jari Kurri and Teemu Selanne. Those are the only players in NHL history to reach 300 goals faster than the Capitals' Alex Ovechkin, who did so Tuesday night.
Mike Knuble said Tuesday morning that he looked at two different standings and saw the Capitals in first place in one and in second in the other. There’s no doubt anymore.
The Capitals had the day off Sunday, so winger Matt Bradley took his 16-month-old son out on the town. In the middle of the afternoon, though, he just couldn't help himself. He had to check his phone to see how the Flyers-Rangers game had gone.
When Dennis Wideman left Tuesday night's game with a lower-body injury, he was originally called "day-to-day." By Thursday, the Capitals downgraded the puck-moving defenseman to "week-to-week," and now it's obvious why.
Jason Chimera wasn't the happiest guy in the world Tuesday when talking to reporters about being a healthy scratch for the Capitals. Those emotions turned around Thursday as he knew he was back in the lineup against his former team, and the speedy winger said he'd like to perform well against the Blue Jackets.
The Capitals went into Bell Centre on Saturday night and took care of the Canadiens with one of their best recent performances. And they did so without Alex Ovechkin, Mike Green and Jason Arnott.
