Capitals unveil Winter Classic uniforms – DC News FOX 5 DC WTTG

Box Score here at NHL.com The Red Wings’ perfect preseason is over thanks to the Chicago Blackhawks dressing their honest-to-God top six forwards and even their top pair because this game was their preseason opener and it was at home and you kind of want to win those games. The Wings got an early goal by the hot-handed Luke Glendening and then couldn’t finish it off, giving up the tying score to Patrick Kane in the 2nd and losing on Duncan Keith ‘s overtime slapper. [Edit: Toews tipped it] That’s really all the recap you need. It’s preseason, and the process is more important than the results. Observations from tonight’s game. Neither team was very good in this one. You could see the skill evident plenty of times, but passes which would hit sticks weren’t connecting. Both teams played fairly carefully with each side getting one rather long shift in the offensive zone (Detroit in the first and Chicago in the third). Detroit’s defense did not look particularly good, but that’s not entirely an awful thing. While the four horsemen played fairly well yesterday in Pittsburgh, they didn’t see top-six competition. Detroit’s middle-four defensemen had trouble consistently moving the puck up and out of the zone against Marian Hossa , Jonathan Toews, and Patrick Kane. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/detroit-red-wings-preseason-recap-033318986.html

Years after email from Capitals owner Leonsis to NHL’s Bettman, Winter Classic uniforms debut | Star Tribune

WASHINGTON (AP) With Alex Ovechkin wearing flip-flops and a borrowed pair of baseball pants on a warm start-of-autumn day, the Washington Capitals have unveiled the uniforms they’ll wear when they host the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL’s Winter Classic on Jan. 1 at Nationals Park. At a news conference Tuesday at the baseball stadium, Capitals owner Ted Leonsis says he lobbied NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman from the moment the puck dropped for the first Winter Classic, in 2008. Leonsis says that “for hockey in Washington, D.C., it’s a big moment” to finally host the New Year’s Day game.

“The first emails I see any morning, on any typical day, are from Ted on any of a variety of subjects but he has been both persistent and passionate in pursuit of this event,” Bettman said at Nationals Park on Tuesday, when the Capitals unveiled the uniforms they’ll wear when they host the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 1. “We’re thrilled to be fulfilling his wish.” On a sunny, start-of-autumn day with the temperature at about 70, Alex Ovechkin wore flip-flops and a borrowed pair of baseball pants, Nicklas Backstrom donned shorts, and Braden Holtby sported sunglasses while modeling the deep red jerseys with a blue “W,” three white stars and the word “Capitals” across the chest. Hockey nets and boards showing the outline of a rink were set up across the back of the dirt diamond and the shallow outfield grass at the baseball stadium where the NL East champion Nationals play their home games. “One of the things I did for Commissioner Bettman a few years back (was) I had a rendering done of what the Winter Classic would look like here. So this is pretty cool to see,” said Mark Lerner, son of the Nationals’ principal owner and a part-owner of the Capitals, as he looked at the setup. “Every time I saw him, I said, ‘What about it?’ Ted and I were both on a mission since Jan. 1, 2008, that we wanted to have it in D.C.” Leonsis called landing the game “a big moment” for hockey in Washington. “Our city deserves it, so it feels good to finally know that we’re going to drop the puck New Year’s Day,” Leonsis said, “and I’m just hoping for snow.” He was asked how much snow. “Enough,” Leonsis replied. “Just no rain.” Tuesday’s news conference came 100 days before the Winter Classic, which Bettman said “will be sold out, if it’s not already.” “New Year’s Day used to be about college football,” Leonsis said, “and now New Year’s Day is about hockey.” The boards set up on the baseball field included logos of the Capitals and the Blackhawks. With the backdrop of the much-discussed appropriateness of the nickname of Washington’s NFL team, the Redskins, Bettman was asked Tuesday about “Blackhawks.” “I don’t think the two are analogous or comparable. source: http://www.startribune.com/sports/twins/276833901.html

“But there are still some things to be sorted out. As you go along, competition for quality ice time internally will be in place as well. We don’t have our lines set in stone game in and game out. I guess we’ll call that competition. As far as spots, we’ll see how that plays out.” After four days of testing, practice and scrimmages at Notre Dame, the competition for that precious little roster space shifted to the United Center on Monday night for the team’s training camp festival. Marcus Kruger had two goals and an assist to lead the White team to a 5-1 victory over the Red squad in the featured scrimmage. Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith and forward Teuvo Teravainen were among a group of players who rested during the festivities, which attracted a sold-out crowd even with the Chicago Bears playing on Monday Night Football. “Really impressive,” said center Brad Richards, who signed with Chicago in the offseason. “For a Red and White game … I haven’t been a part of something like that. So it just makes you feel better about choosing to come here.” It was the Blackhawks’ first public appearance at their longtime home since they were eliminated by the Kings on Alec Martinez’s overtime goal in Game 7. Martinez’s shot went off Chicago defenseman Nick Leddy and fluttered over goaltender Corey Crawford, a nightmare for the Blackhawks that ended their bid for a repeat title and lingered into the summer for many of the players. source: http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/nhl_coverage/2014/09/few_openings_when_it_comes_to_blackhawks_roster
