Awww Operasen, thanks. ;)

And in a thrilling twist of fate, The Lou won tonight. Lalime by all accounts was great.

Sens win, The Lou wins. I feel somewhat at ease for now.  :banana:

Only a single goal allowed by Patty. Should help build his confidence again now that a few winnable games are coming.

For me its the D that are cracking.  Most of his goals have been rebound types (that I've seen).  D are not clearing as they did here for him.  They need to get on the same page.

Lots of parity out there, the Sens are the only team with 3 or 4 games played and no losses or OT losses.

Looks like Ovechkin is getting semin to help him.

The Washington Capitals could get an unexpected addition this season.

After almost two seasons of avoiding the Capitals, Russian forward Alexander Semin may have no choice but to play for the NHL team due to problems with his Russian Super League squad.

The Washington Times reports Semin's club, Lada Togliatti, is experiencing financial difficulties which has already led to the firing of the team's general manager and some of its coaches. The purge is expected to continue with a number of high paid players the first to be targeted.

Semin is the highest paid player on Lada, making the equivalent of $2-million - tax free. His deal also includes the use of a car and a condo.

The former 2002 first round pick's relationship with the Capitals has been a rocky one. First, he refused to report to the minors at the end of the 2003-04 season citing a military obligation in Russia which prevented him from leaving. The Capitals did not buy the story and promptly suspended him.


 
 
 
This year, he reportedly told team officials he would be at training camp along with fellow Russian Alexander Ovechkin. But while Ovechkin showed up, Semin did not and the suspension continued.

The Times quotes an unnamed Capitals official as saying even if Semin is available, they're not sure they want him on the team under any circumstance.

Semin is under contract to the Capitals for two more seasons. His options outside of the NHL are limited due to the suspension, which is recognized by the IIHF.

And Brule breaks his sternum.  CBJs are in a world of hurt.

Brule may go back to junior after recovery

Good news for Caps.

Bad news for Gilbert and Jackets.

Ovechkin currently has the play of the year with a goal against Carolina. He and Cassels were on a 2-on-1 and Cassel's pass was at Ovechkin's knee level. 'Vech knocked it down and pulled off a great move on the Canes' goalie. Beautiful.
Accept mediocrity. Winning is gravy.

Speaking of good news for the Caps, Ovechkin is unbelievable.  Putting on a clinic in the 1st period tonight.

Dunham leaves the game with an injury. Pulled groin or hamstring most likely.

Aaron Ward just DRILLED Brendan Witt with a clean open-ice shoulder at the blue line.  Like a redwood hammering a sequoia.

Begin's problem looked serious when it happened, but he's out there a couple minutes later, good as new.

The puck goes into Carolina's empty net when Ward leaves for an extra attacker due to the delayed penalty call. At least they scored on the ensuing powerplay. And AO has another nice hit.

Eric Staal just picked up his 4th point of the night, and now has 8 on the season and a share of the NHL lead with Spezza and Savvy.

I see a goal and two assists so far. Which one was his 4th point?

EDIT: Nevermind; I just saw his latest assist.
