One of the most important tests of Coach Bruce Boudreau's tenure behind the Washington Capitals ' bench arrived Tuesday night at Verizon Center.

To everyone's surprise — especially Alex Ovechkin's — the team captain was not among them . Ovechkin was...

When the Washington Capitals took the ice yesterday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex for an optional, mellow practice session -- one skipped by most of the big names and not even overseen by Coach Bruce Boudreau, whose head was buried in video -- José Theodore strapped on his pads and went about the business of forgetting his most recent past and refusing to even think about what might happen in the very near future.

When the Washington Capitals host the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers tonight at Verizon Center, they could be without two important players.

Neither participated in yesterday's optional practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, and both are listed as day-to-day, Coach Bruce Boudreau said.

But after Saturday's 5-0 blowout in Buffalo, the Capitals' most lopsided defeat since March, Coach Bruce Boudreau revoked their respite. Instead, a scowling Boudreau presided over a practice he called the toughest of his tenure. The hour-long session, conducted with General Manager George McPhee and majority owner Ted Leonsis watching from a perch...

When Washington Capitals prospect Joe Finley hits the ice this week, the 6-foot-7, 245-pounder will line up at a position he hasn't played full-time since, well, he can't remember when. Finley was drafted as a defenseman 27th overall in 2005, but he'll be a left wing when he joins 22 of the organization's other prospects at Kettler Capitals Iceplex for the team's annual rookie camp, which begins Monday. Coach Bruce Boudreau hopes the rare-but-not-unheard-of move jumpstarts Finley's career.
