Washington Capitals Still Making Mistakes

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

The Washington Capitals went out and took three of four points against two potential playoff teams this weekend in Boston and Philadelphia, and currently have as many points (68) as the final wild-card team. Yet, if you're a Capitals fan, you can't feel great about this team, even if they manage to hang in the playoff hunt.

They still make mistakes while playing with a lead that a veteran team shouldn't be making, whether it be a defenseman jumping into a play on offense at an inopportune time or another defenseman jumping an opposing player at an inopportune time. Washington's schedule in March is just too demanding to leave any points on the table, which is exactly what it did in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Flyers.

Video- Washington Capitals No Goal Call Today

One of the toughest calls to make, probably would have been called a goal if the refs would have went in that direction.

via the Situation Blog,

At 14:59 of the first period in the Flyers/Capitals game, the Situation Room initiated video review to further examine a play at the Philadelphia net. Video review was inconclusive in determining if Nicklas Backstrom's shot completely crossed the goal line. Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Washington.

NHL Statement On Nicklas Backstrom

SOCHI, RUSSIA (Feb. 23, 2014) – National Hockey League Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly today released the following statement regarding Nicklas Backstrom:

“We understand that Nicklas Backstrom tested positive for a substance banned ‘in competition’ by the International Olympic Committee. It is our further understanding that the positive test was the result of a common allergy medication taken by the player knowingly, with the approval of the team doctor and without the intention of gaining an illegal or improper performance-enhancing benefit. In addition, the specific substance that resulted in the positive test is not currently on the League’s Prohibited Substances List.

“Subject to confirmation of the facts as we understand them, and given the fact that the substance is neither prohibited in the NHL nor was used in an improper manner here, we do not anticipate there being any consequences relative to Nicklas’ eligibility to participate in games for the Washington Capitals.”

added 11:38am, Washington Capitals statement...

ARLINGTON, Va. – Nicklas Backstrom did not participate in Team Sweden’s Olympic gold-medal game on Sunday due to the allergy medication he has been taking intermittently for seven years, including this season while playing for the Washington Capitals to combat severe allergies. The medicine was approved by the Swedish national team. It is not anticipated that this will impact his participation in NHL games.
