The Washington Capitals sent goalie Semyon Varlamov to American Hockey League affiliate Hershey as he comes back from an injury. Varlamov has been sidelined since Dec. 7, missing nine games, because of what the team is calling a lower-body injury. He is 12-1-2 with a 2.21 goals-against average and .924 save percentage for the Southeast Division-leading Capitals. Varlamov is expected to rejoin the Capitals next week. - From Sun staff and news services

The Washington Capitals were one of the busiest teams Friday when the doors to the 2011 NHL free agent market opened, as general manager George McPhee sent goalie Semyon Varlamov to Colorado for a pair of draft picks and added three veterans to the lineup. In signing role player and former Capitals captain Jeff Halpern, two-way defenseman Roman Hamrlik and a big-bodied, hard working winger in Joel Ward, Washington elevated the leadership in a still-young dressing room and filled holes in the roster that will be left by the departure of up to five unrestricted free agents.

The Washington Capitals recalled center Keith Aucoin and goalie Michal Neuvirth from the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears, general manager George McPhee announced. The recall is Aucoin's third this season. He has totaled one goal and four assists in eight games with Washington, and has recorded nine goals and 15 assists in 19 contests with Hershey. Neuvirth was recalled for the second time this season. He has played in one game for the Capitals this year and made 19 saves in a 3-2 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 20. Neuvirth is 10-5-0 with the Bears this year, with a 1.99 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.

The Capitals have started to retool their roster after another early playoff exit. They have re-signed center Brooks Laich, traded for power forward Troy Brouwer and added a few draft picks to their minor-league system. Expect more changes -- perhaps more significant ones -- after owner Ted Leonsis said the Capitals "want to change and improve" this offseason. He also suggested that some trades could be in the works. Keeping Laich and acquiring Brouwer should help the Capitals in the grit department, but I’m of the belief that they need to add size and physicality on the back end. The Capitals committed themselves to team defense last season and were one of the NHL’s stingiest teams when it comes to goals against, but they can only do so much with mediocre defensive players.

Mike Fisher scored 1:14 into overtime, giving the host Ottawa Senators a 4-3 comeback victory over the Washington Capitals. Fisher batted Chris Phillips ' centering pass out of the air and past Semyon Varlamov for his 10th goal of the season.

Alexandre Picard scored Ottawa's second goal in a span of 4:20 on a power play 7:40 into the third to tie it at 3.

WASHINGTON - - The Capitals scored three goals in a 2 1/2 -minute span in the third period Wednesday night, igniting a 5-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks and giving the Eastern Conference's top team its longest winning streak in 26 years. Shaone Morrisonn, Mike Knuble and Alexander Semin scored on consecutive shots early in the third period to break open a tie game, helping the Capitals win their eighth straight - their best run since taking a franchise-record 10 in a row during the 1983-84 season.

On paper, it was a mismatch. Advantage, Washington Capitals. The Caps have the NHL's best record this season. They were looking to set a franchise record for points in a season and wrap up the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. They lead the NHL in goals scored, by a wide margin. The Carolina Hurricanes, meanwhile, had eight players in the lineup Thursday night who have played in the American Hockey League this season. They had rookie forwards, rookie defensemen. In the end, it took a shootout to decide it. It was just that even for 65 minutes, before the Hurricanes emerged with a 3-2 victory at the RBC Center on Chad LaRose's goal.

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.

Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom will represent Sweden at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia. Swedish coach Bengt Gustafsson - a former Capital - on Sunday announced his team's 23-man roster that will try to defend Sweden's gold medal from the 2006 Olympics. Backstrom, 22, will be making his first Olympic appearance. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound native of Gavle, Sweden, ranks sixth in the NHL (second among Swedish-born players) with 45 points (15 goals, 30 assists)

Defenseman Mike Green said he would be on the ice for Game 1 of the Washington Capitals' first-round playoff series against the New York Rangers. Coach Bruce Boudreau didn't go that far, calling the All-Star's availability a "game-time decision. " Green missed the Capitals' final 20 games and 26 of the final 28 with a head injury. "I feel great and in game-shape ready to play," Green said after practice Tuesday when asked whether he was ready to go. Asked again, he added: "I'll be playing.

— Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee will have five selections, tied for the fewest in franchise history, when the NHL draft begins tonight at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. The small number of draft picks doesn't bother McPhee, though, who has publicly questioned the overall depth of this year's class. Adding valuable prospects through the draft has been a strength of the Capitals in recent years, but with only one choice in the first three rounds — the 26th overall — finding an impact player may be more of a challenge.

Expect the Capitals, who trail the Lightning by five points in the Southeast Division, to be players before the NHL's trade deadline on Feb. 28. As it's currently constituted, this team doesn't appear to be capable of going on a deep playoff run (though nothing should be discounted as long as Alex Ovechkin is in the scarlet and white). Looking at their shopping list, the Capitals need a second-line center to play with Alexander Semin -- assuming he doesn't get shipped elsewhere before the deadline -- and they must fortify the back end with a defensive defenseman or two. And though plenty of fans are enamored with Semyon Varlamov and Michael Neuvirth, I believe the Capitals need to bring in a veteran goalie who can carry the load alone.

Johan Hedberg made 30 saves for his 15th career shutout and the struggling New Jersey Devils stunned the NHL-leading Washington Capitals 5-0 on Monday night. Jason Arnott scored twice while rookie Mattias Tedenby and Patrik Elias each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Hedberg, playing in his 300th game, got the start as Martin Brodeur is expected to miss one to two weeks with a bruised elbow. Dainius Zubrus also scored for the Devils, who won for only the second time at home (2-5-2)

Late in Sunday morning's practice session at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, Semyon Varlamov — the player who was in net at the conclusion of the Washington Capitals' stomach-flipping overtime victory over Montreal on Saturday night — stood in goal at one end of the ice, taking shot after shot from a pair of assistant coaches. José Theodore, the man who began that same game in the net before he was yanked after all of two shots, watched closely from between the faceoff circles.

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.

Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau could sense his players getting bored and tired during Thursday's practice, so instead of barking instructions as he had throughout the hourlong session, he decided to give them an incentive. "Don't fall asleep," he yelled to the 18 players on the ice as they continued a neutral-zone drill at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington. "We've only got 10 minutes left." Boudreau and his staff have gone back to the basics with training camp-style practices this week, emphasizing systems and conditioning before the final 20-game stretch of the Capitals' regular season picks up Wednesday at Buffalo.
