Capitals don’t bring enough vs. desperate Rangers in Game 3 of NHL playoff series

Holtby gave up more goals than in the first two games combined, including Derek Stepan’s game-winner with 6 minutes 25 seconds remaining, and Lundqvist was King Henry again. “We knew we had to win this one,” Lundqvist said. “It was a must-win. We really stepped up as a group and they kept coming. They’re a good team and you have to respect that, but we scored some big goals tonight.” If you’re facing a goalie like Lundqvist, you need to take shots — lots of shots. In the first two games, the Caps took 68. Monday, the Caps started slower, taking fewer shots and not making the crisp, quick passes of Games 1 and 2. That in turn translated into fewer shots on goal. The Caps picked up the pace during the end of the second period and into the third, and they ended the game with a 31-30 advantage. But it was not their sharpest game. source:

Capitals Alumnus Alan Hangsleben Hosts Capitals Hockey School at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School

The students were then given the opportunity to try out the skills in front of their peers. Two students even volunteered to be dressed as goalies, learning the proper way to put on the equipment and how to handle the goalie stick. The students then played alongside Hangsleben in a friendly scrimmage that resulted in a 2-1 victory for Hangsleben and his girls team. The hour-long program concluded with the Capitals donating a set of hockey equipment to the elementary school. All students who participated in the session received autographs from Hangsleben, Caps squishy pucks and Hockey 101 booklets. The school also received a Capitals Hockey School banner to display in their school year-round. The visit marked the sixteenth Capitals Hockey School assembly of the 2012-13 academic year, while the 2012-13 season marks the sixth consecutive year the Capitals have conducted their Hockey School program. The Capitals have hosted more than 80 clinics and reached more than 10,000 students through Caps Hockey School.
