Wings/Capitals Preview And Notes

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Brendan Savage of Mlive,

Mike Babcock isn't certain what to expect from the Washington Capitals tonight.

Sure, the Capitals have many of the same players back from last season, when they split the season series against Detroit as each team got four points. And Babcock has watched a couple of Washington's games this season on tape.

But the Capitals also have a new look after adding defensemen Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik - who both came over from Pittsburgh - as well as rookies Andre Burakovsky and Liam O'Brien to their lineup.

All have played key roles in helping Washington start the season 4-2-2 as it prepares to host Detroit.

But two things Babcock and the Red Wings are plenty familiar with are the Caps' leaders - head coach Barry Trotz and longtime captain Alex Ovechkin.

Preview of the Washington/Detroit game from Mike Vogel of Dump 'n Chase,

Two days after returning from a three-game journey through western Canada, the Capitals make a quick stop home to host the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night at Verizon Center. The game against the Wings concludes the October portion of the Capitals’ 2014-15 campaign.

Washington and Detroit feature identical 4-2-2 records at this early juncture of the season. So far in the early going, the Caps have yet to lose consecutive contests. They’ll need a win over the Wings to keep it that way.

The Capitals spend Monday in the air, flying back from Vancouver where they suffered a 4-2 loss to the Canucks on Sunday night. The Caps come home from their first extended road trip of the season with a 1-2 mark on the three-game journey through western Canada.

Another Bad Loss For The Buffalo Sabres

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

There have been some horrible, downright despicable performances by the Sabres since they were founded in 1970. Pity anyone who watched one worse than Tuesday’s outing.

Buffalo’s 10th game of 2014-15 had folks looking to the calendar to see when this season will be over. Only 24 weeks and 72 games left!

Pity anyone who stays with this train wreck the whole way.

Goaltender Michal Neuvirth was the only player to show up for the Sabres, who slept from the opening faceoff to the merciful horn in a 4-0 loss to Toronto. Buffalo had just 10 shots, the fewest in franchise history, and looked worse than the peewee team it was compared to earlier in the season.

“It’s embarrassing,” right wing Drew Stafford said. “There’s no other way to describe it. I don’t know how we expect to win games let alone be competitive with that going on. We need to just wake up.”

More Injuries For The Columbus Blue Jackets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Shawn Mitchell of Puck-Rakers,

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss 1-2 weeks because of a broken finger suffered on Monday. Defenseman James Wisniewski will likely miss 1-2 weeks because of a broken finger suffered tonight. Center Artem Anisimov will miss an undetermined amount of time after he suffered a blow to the head and left the game for good in the second period. Add them to a list of injured Jackets that already includes Boone Jenner (broken hand), Brandon Dubinsky (abdominal surgery), Matt Calvert (upper body), Nathan Horton (back) and Nick Foligno (neck). Ouch.

“Whether I’ve done something or somebody’s done something to the hockey gods…I’ve never seen anything like this. It seems like every time we play a game somebody is getting hurt.” – Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards, who said he has never before seen a rash of injuries at any point in his career.

Video- LA Kings React To Brayden Schenn’s OT Goal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

Jonathan Quick, on whether he felt he was pushed into the net:
No, I know I was. I didn’t ‘feel.’ I know. So that should be no goal. I don’t know how that goes upstairs and still they get it wrong. I don’t know the excat ruling on that because they seem to change it every year, but usually you’re not allowed to push a goalie into the net, so I don’t know. Maybe they changed it again on us.

Darryl Sutter, on whether the call on the ice was correct:
They have the right to review it, so whether it was or not, it doesn’t matter whether I think if it’s correct or not correct. It really has no bearing on anything. He was safe at third and he was out at home.

 

 

Quick received a 10 minute game misconduct penalty after the goal was ruled good, watch below...

The overnight report: Red Wings-Capitals set-up; assorted notes, prospect stuff and Quincey blingin’

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Washington Capitals have been a bundle of contradictions for a while now, at least from the outside looking in. It appears that Ted Leonsis is finally letting new GM Brian McLellan make his own personnel decisions and Barry Trotz coach after a complicated relationship with previous GM George McPhee and a set of coaches that most recently included Adam Oates...

But just as the Red Wings are starting to feel a little too "old-school" in terms of the ownership and management's stubbornness in the player personnel department, perhaps the Caps are the best American NHL example of a team whose coaching and personnel machinations always seemed to involve an owner overly concerned with public perception.

Tonight's "Rivalry Night" opponent (the Wings and Caps play at 7:30 PM on NBCSN/TVA Sports/Sportsnet One/97.1 FM) possesses the same record as the 4-2-and-2 Red Wings, but after dropping a 4-2 decision to Vancouver on Sunday, Barry Trotz told NHL.com's Dan Rosen that he plans on ensuring that the team plays a more traditional game this evening (see also: dump, chase):
