Capitals shake up bottom six with Kovalchuk, trade Djoos to Ducks

- The Washington Times

The Capitals acquired Ilya Kovalchuk Sunday on the eve of the trade deadline, and remained active Monday by swapping defenseman Christian Djoos for Anaheim Ducks forward Daniel Sprong in a minor-league trade. For Kovalchuk, the chance to play with longtime friend Alex Ovechkin and the shot at a Stanley Cup make Washington an ideal new home.

But for all the hoopla around the latest in a string of impressive individual milestones, the goal came with the tinge of regret that always accompanies a loss as the Caps fell 3-2 to the Devils.
