Blame Washington's intelligence failure, not lack of police

Vokoun is eight wins away as Pittsburgh moves into the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins. He's not riding the pine as Marc-Andre Fleury does the job; the 36-year-old is between the pipes living out the chance he never got with the Capitals.
When Capitals coach Adam Oates played with the Boston Bruins, he watched defenseman Ray Bourque work his way to legendary status, and now he's transferring some knowledge over to Mike Green.
Often along the road to Monday's induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame, ex-Washington Capitals center Adam Oates went unnoticed or underappreciated.
Former Detroit Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom played almost perfect defense for 20 seasons in the NHL, so it's no surprise that he was the example for many young players.
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.
The return of Peter Forsberg to the ice instantly revved up the crowd.
Chris Bourque admits that when he was overseas last year playing in Russia and Switzerland that he read box scores from around the NHL, with obvious emphasis on the Capitals. Washington drafted Bourque in the second round of the 2004 draft, and he was part of the organization for almost his entire time in North America, save for a short time with the Penguins after being claimed off waivers.
The Colorado Avalanche will retire Peter Forsberg's number before the season opener on Oct. 8 against the Detroit Red Wings.
The Boston Bruins thought they knew what they were getting when they traded for Mark Recchi during the 2009 stretch run.
