I counted four bleeps from Bruce Boudreau, but after watching close-up shots of the 1st Mariner Arena workers mopping the ice, I'm sure there were about 400 bleeps that got cut out by the folks at Comcast SportsNet. Other than that, though, I bet the Capitals coach had a lovely [bleeping] time at the inaugural Baltimore Hockey Classic. [ via D.C. Sports Bog ]

Over the past week, the Washington Capitals wondered where their offense had gone, but Tuesday night at Verizon Center against the stingy Nashville Predators they found the power switch again. Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Semin scored in the same game for the first time since Oct. 30, 2010, to lead the Capitals to a 4-1 win over Nashville, which had won five games in a row. "We played a good game 60 minutes tonight," said Backstrom, who added to his team lead in goals (12)

Capitals right wing Mike Knuble has a broken finger and will be sidelined three to four weeks. Knuble was injured on a power play in the first period of Friday's 3-1 victory over the Wild. He crashed into the net when defenseman Marek Zidlicky sent him hurdling over goaltender Josh Harding . The Capitals said Knuble will have surgery. The team did not say which finger was broken. Knuble has five goals and 10 assists for the Capitals this season. He was one of Washington's major offseason acquisitions, signing a two-year deal, $5.6 million deal on the first day of NHL free agency in July.

Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis says Peter Forsberg is going to stay in Sweden this season. Gillis was considering signing the former Avalanche star but said he learned Monday that Forsberg wanted to stay in his home country. Forsberg, who is playing for Modo of the Swedish Elite League after 12 NHL seasons spent mostly with the Avalanche, has dealt with nagging ankle and foot problems for several years. "My understanding is Peter is going to stay and play in Modo, and he won't return to the NHL this year," Gillis said Monday.

The question has lingered over the Washington Capitals for weeks, and with two games remaining before the playoffs, coach Bruce Boudreau still hasn't revealed which goaltender will start Game 1 of the quarterfinals. "I haven't discussed anything with anybody," Boudreau said. "I'm still evaluating. Nothing has been etched in stone." The prevailing sentiment around the league is that Boudreau hasn't committed to either José Theodore or Semyon Varlamov because he believes that it's possible, if not likely, the Capitals could need both in their quest for the franchise's first Stanley Cup. While that's not the conventional approach, it's not unprecedented in recent NHL history, either.

ATLANTA - -The Washington Capitals won their sixth game in a row and earned two points on the road against a Southeast Division opponent Thursday night. But you wouldn't have known it after seeing the scowl on coach Bruce Boudreau's face as he emerged from the visitors' dressing room, his hands stuffed in his pockets. Boudreau had just watched his team build a three-goal lead against the Atlanta Thrashers, let up late in the second period, then hang on for a frantic 4-3 victory that got much too close for comfort.

Alex Ovechkin's latest on-ice indiscretion netted him a two-game suspension, a sore right knee and a new level of concern from his coach about his "pretty reckless" ways. The league's reigning two-time MVP was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Tuesday for a knee-to-knee hit on defenseman Tim Gleason in Monday night's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. Ovechkin's first NHL suspension will cost him $98,844.16 in salary. He'll sit out Thursday against the Panthers and Saturday in Philadelphia.

WASHINGTON - -For the better part of two weeks, the Washington Capitals had been eking out wins over opponents they should have beaten convincingly. On Friday night, it caught up to them on home ice against one of the NHL's worst clubs. The Capitals surrendered a one-goal lead late in the second period, then defenseman Mark Streit of the New York Islanders hammered a shot past goaltender Jos? Theodore 53 seconds into overtime to hand the Capitals a humbling, miscue-riddled 4-3 defeat. The victory was only the Islanders' third of the season and it halted Washington's six-game wining streak, stunning a capacity crowd at Verizon Center.

Multiple times over the course of this season, the Washington Capitals characterized stinging defeats and growing pains from a new style of play as lessons that would help guide them through the playoffs. But as they head to Tampa Bay for games 3 and 4 of this Eastern Conference semifinal series, the Capitals cannot afford to learn anything else the hard way. Trailing the Lightning two games to none, Washington must capture at least one victory in back-to-back games for a chance to extend its season and advance to the conference finals.

Everywhere Mike Green looked during the Washington Capitals' recent three-day visit to Vancouver, the high-scoring defenseman was reminded of the question that has consumed him since summer: Will he, or won't he, make Team Canada's final cut? The four Olympic rings and the words "Vancouver 2010" adorned everything from billboards to taxicabs. Every other story on sports television, it seemed, focused on the approaching Games. Each morning after practice, a gaggle of reporters gathered around Green's locker room stall at GM Place to capture his thoughts on the matter.
