Scoring An Issue For The Capitals After Another Loss

from Katie Carrera of the Washington Post,

The prescription for the Washington Capitals’ destruction is becoming familiar. Combine bad penalties with some sloppy decisions in the defensive zone, mix in a few neutral zone turnovers, sprinkle in a meager offense — and the recipe is all but complete.

That formula led to a 2-1 defeat Friday night to the New Jersey Devils, the Capitals’ seventh straight loss. They’ve scored more than one goal in one of those seven setbacks and have now dropped 14 of their past 18 games.

This particular failure saw another opportunity for Washington to pull itself out of its funk against a Metropolitan Division foe go to waste as the sixth-place Devils now sit three points ahead of the seventh-place Capitals.

“We’ve just gotta find a way to win a game. Gotta find some goals. It seems like we have to get a shutout to win a game. We’ve got to find a way to do it,” Jason Chimera said. “If desperation doesn’t set in then we’re in trouble, that’s for sure.”

Jagr Not Happy With Line Change

from Dave Hutchinson of the Star Ledger,

After a pair of two-game auditions (four games total) on the first line with Jagr and Zajac, rookie Reid Boucher was sent down to AHL Albany on Wednesday and replaced by rookie call-up Joe Whitney this morning. Whitney will now join Jagr and Zajac on the top line in Friday night’s home game against the Capitals in his NHL debut.

Jagr, who has played with nearly a half dozen different line combinations this season, had 10 goals and 10 assists in his first 24 games with Zajac and Zubrus. He's tied for the team lead in goals with 16.

“It keeps changing,” Jagr told The Star-Ledger this afternoon. “You get new guys coming in and out. I don’t really like it but that’s the way it is.

“This game is too quick to play with guys you don’t know about. Sometimes you have to do things when you don’t even see them. You have to have a sense that he should be there. The game is so quick. We’ll see what happens.”

“We were poor right across the board. Poor with our discipline. Our top players took poor penalties, poor in every aspect of our game.

“It’s disappointing. We’re going to have to regroup. This is on everybody. It’s on me, it’s on the players ... it’s a total team loss. It’s just disappointing to put in an effort like (Monday) and to come back and play like we did today.”

-Ken Hitchcock, head coach of the St. Louis Blues after losing to the Devils 7-1.  More on the game from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Video- You Make The Call - Toronto Goal Waived-Off

from Stephen Whyno of the CP at The Score,

Upon closer inspection, it didn't look like van Riemsdyk interfered with Schneider.

"I just think that in that situation, specifically, when you review it on replay, it's hard to take the side of the official," Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. "I don't know any other way to put it politely."

That the Leafs managed to win 3-2 in a shootout relieved some of the frustration. But had Bozak's goal counted, it could have meant a rare regulation victory for Toronto, which has just two in 26 games dating to Nov. 21.

New Jersey Devils Ownership Group Signs Agreement With PartyPoker

from  Scott Soshnick and Christopher Palmeri of Bloomberg,

The Josh Harris-controlled Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils signed a multiyear marketing agreement with partypoker, becoming the first major U.S.-based professional sports teams to align themselves with online gambling.

The agreement with the unit of Gibraltar-based Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment Plc, the teams and Prudential Center, home to the Devils, comes about a year after New Jersey legalized online gambling, which is expected to be a $7.4 billion business in the U.S. by 2017, according to the research firm H2 Gambling Capital. Nevada and Delaware are the only other states to allow online gambling.

“This is our flag in the ground that we do things differently,” Scott O’Neil, chief executive officer of the 76ers, Devils and Prudential Center, said in a telephone interview. “We’re looking for groundbreaking opportunities with companies willing to take chances.”

“I don’t think (the Flyers) were ready from the first minute and we didn’t take advantage. It happened to us against Columbus two weeks ago and other games, too. When you add those points it’s maybe the difference in the playoffs and not the playoffs. We don’t learn. (We make) the same mistakes over and over.”

-Jaromir Jagr of the New Jersey Devils after losing in OT to the Philadelphia Flyers last night.  More reaction on the game from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger.
