Mike Green says he'll need one more day of practice before returning from a lower body bruise.
Nicklas Backstrom remained perfect in shootouts as the Caps remained within one point of the division-leading Penguins.
Steve Oleksy won his first championship there. Troy Brouwer played his first playoff series there. Alex Ovechkin is facing one of Russia's greatest players. Tune in to Caps-Red Wings now!
The Detroit Red Wings accomplished their No. 1 goal of this offseason by agreeing to a new deal with Pavel Datsyuk.
The Detroit Red Wings accomplished their No. 1 goal of the offseason Tuesday by agreeing to a $22.5 million, three-year deal with Pavel Datsyuk.
Much as they would love to get big contributions from Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, the Chicago Blackhawks have shown they can win even when their biggest stars aren't lighting up the scoreboard.
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews got another victory on Friday. The trophy he wants the most is still up for grabs.
Pavel Datsyuk is one of the NHL's most feared scorers, a wizard with the puck who is equally adept at setting up his teammates for easy plays. Jonathan Toews has at least 23 goals in each of his six seasons in the league, and Patrice Bergeron is one of the top offensive threats for one of the league's best teams.
The top of the list includes Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa. Patrick Sharp is coming off another great playoff series, and Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland have come up with big postseason goals in the past.
Alex Ovechkin knew right away how badly he was missed. When he landed at Dulles International Airport on Monday afternoon, the Washington Capitals captain heard firsthand the sound of the end of the NHL lockout.
Alex Ovechkin left the United States on a jet plane bound for Russia, saying earlier this month he wasn't sure when and if he would be back.
It was fun to watch Alex Ovechkin turn Duncan Keith inside out for a highlight-reel goal Sunday, but the rest of his game against the Chicago Blackhawks was far from praise-worthy. The Washington Capitals captain struggled on the defensive end and was again on the ice for some goals against in a loss.
Claude Giroux is tired of the story at this point. At the 2006 NHL draft, then-Philadelphia Flyers general manager Bobby Clarke forgot the name of the player he was taking 22nd overall.
Mike Green didn't let a little puck to the face get in the way of an impressive performance.
Johan Franzen broke a tie in the second period, Ty Conklin stopped 29 shots and the Detroit Red Wings beat Colorado 3-0 on Saturday to spoil a night in which the Avalanche retired the jersey of Peter Forsberg.
Few have been better at dangling a puck or snatching one away, a skill Datsyuk has said he learned as a kid.
Soon after the season ended with a Game 7 loss in the second round at Chicago, Datsyuk said he wanted to stay with the Red Wings instead of returning home to play in Russia following the 2013-14 season.
