Et cetera Capitals' Carlson selected to U.S. Olympic roster The Washington Capitals' John Carlson was one of eight defensemen named Wednesday to the 2014 U.S. Olympic team that will compete in Sochi, Russia, in February. Carlson has led Washington in ice time and handled the toughest matchups the NHL has to offer every night through the first three months of the season. For Capitals coach Adam Oates , who has been lobbying for Carlson's inclusion since the summer, it was a no-brainer.

Capitals center Adam Oates glides to the middle of the circle. His blue eyes are like the ice below his skates. Hard. Cold. He waits for the opposing center to put his stick down on the edge of the red circle that marks the place where this faceoff will be fought. "It is, in a sense, like a gunfight in the old West," said Capitals coach Ron Wilson. "Adam lines up, and he just dares you to beat him. Like a gunslinger. Draw! Why does one guy shoot the other? Because he has more nerve." Because he's faster.

A little more than a month ago, the Washington Capitals called a players-only meeting in search of a wake-up call. Off to the fourth-worst start in franchise history at 2-8-1, they sat in last place in the NHL, five points out of a playoff spot. They've gone 8-5-0 in the 13 games since the meeting, at times showing enough noticeable improvement to suggest that things were finally starting to come together under first-year coach Adam Oates. But after losing to the Islanders and Rangers this weekend, the Capitals have little to show for their modest progress.

Dale Hunter, 37 and the Washington Capitals' captain, looks around his living room, takes in his Christmas tree, wife Karynka, children Dylan, 12, Shalen, 10, and Tucker, 7, and grins.It was Christmas 1980 when he proposed to Karynka beside a much smaller Christmas tree in Quebec during his rookie year in the NHL. And now, 17 years later, he is rich in family and dreams come true -- and still playing the kids' game he has always loved."How lucky can you be?" he wonders. "Hockey has gotten me everything I ever wanted."

It took until the fifth try and the eighth day of the season, but the Washington Capitals finally managed to put together a complete game under the guidance of first-year coach Adam Oates and come away with a victory. Fueled by contributions from every corner of the lineup, from Alex Ovechkin through to Joel Ward and John Erskine, Washington played a smart and aggressive brand of hockey to defeat the Buffalo Sabres, 3-2, on Sunday afternoon at Verizon Center . It was the only reward the Capitals wanted after days of making gradual progress in getting up to speed with their new coach and new system.

WASHINGTON - The Philadelphia Flyers did all the things last night the Washington Capitals want to do. The result was another stunning Flyers victory over the Caps, this time by 3-0. Only 11 days ago in Philadelphia, the Flyers made the Caps look like Little-Leaguers, in an ugly game the entire team assessed to be an embarrassment. Last night, it was less so, but still not pretty. "It's definitely frustrating," said Caps leading scorer Peter Bondra. "The only way you're going to win is if you score.

Hockey Caps' Oates to help coach Hershey affiliate The Washington Capitals announced Sunday that Adam Oates would serve as co-coach of the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears, along with head coach Mark French , during the NHL lockout. It's a move that will allow Oates, a first-time NHL head coach, time behind a bench while familiarizing himself with players throughout the organization. Oates and French, along with Hershey assistant coach Troy Mann , will be behind the bench during games, but the suddenly expanded staff still has to work out most of the logistics.

The applause echoed through the rafters and the sound of stomping feet rumbled across the aluminum bleachers as members of the Washington Capitals stepped onto the ice Sunday morning. As the players warmed up, the rows of fans who packed the seats and lined up three-deep behind the glass began a familiar serenade: "C-A-P-S! Caps! Caps! Caps!" Amid the celebration, Adam Oates smiled as he took to the ice to run his first official practice as a head coach. After waiting more than four months because of the NHL lockout and spending the past week watching his players work out without being able to instruct them, he was more than ready for the moment.

No one expected the Washington Capitals' season opener to be perfect. Not after just six days to learn a new system from a new head coach, not when there's chemistry to establish, communication to pin down and players on the roster without professional game experience in eight months. Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, each of those elements played a role as the Capitals fell, 6-3, in Adam Oates' debut as coach. There were plenty of little miscues, especially defensively, as players struggled to identify assignments or regroup when caught out of position.

WASHINGTON - Adam Oates doesn't want to play for a team without goals. If a team doesn't have goals, he says, it can become complacent. Complacency is the enemy of the Washington Capitals, a team that has been the hottest thing on ice in the NHL since Dec. 1. "It's hard to play without having a goal every night," said Oates, who has his eyes firmly fixed on the Eastern Conference title. "I like them. We're still fighting for first place, and it's a good goal." It's a good goal, and after yesterday's comeback, 6-5 victory against the Eastern Conference-leading Ottawa Senators, it is also well within reason.
