The Buffalo Sabres fired coach Ron Rolston and hired former coach Ted Nolan to replace him.
Leonsis doesn't believe he's getting it done, at least not where it counts the most. The NHL and NBA owner graded himself Tuesday, and the marks reflect the mixed results and shifting expectations regarding both franchises since he took over the Capitals in 1999 and the Wizards in 2010.
Washington's Mikhail Grabovski sent the game to overtime by getting his stick on a loose puck with 1:45 remaining in regulation, capping a back-and-forth third period that awoke the Verizon Center crowd after a sleepy start to the game.
The owner of the Washington Capitals and Wizards says he doesn't ask for much from the D.C. government, but that better traffic control and increased police presence around Verizon Center would be nice.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 33 shots and Nick Holden scored his first NHL goal to break a second-period tie, lifting the Avalanche to a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.
The Coyotes gave the NHL's best power play far too many chances, didn't capitalize enough on the numerous chances they got and generally found ways to get in their own way until late in regulation. They still found a way to win it.
The Capitals scored early and late in regulation before turning toward goaltender Braden Holtby, who sealed a satisfying comeback victory. Holtby had 33 saves, then blanked the Minnesota in a shootout as Washington beat the Wild 3-2 to extend its winning streak to four games.
Here's the status of the Florida Panthers these days: The owner is disappointed, the general manager is angry and the players are underachieving.
The Caps could have returned Wilson to the Plymouth Whalers, his junior hockey team, after nine games. But despite zero production they stuck with him and almost certainly will for the duration of the season.
