Valiant third period effort not enough for the Washington Capitals

Game 6 between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was, in my opinion, the best game of the series so far. Throughout the entire game there was a sense of a must-win scenario.

Former Predator Ward represents tricky lesson in NHL economics

When the Washington Capitals awarded Joel Ward a four-year, $12-million contract in 2011, it seemed like an outrageous sum at the time. Ward was coming off a regular season in which he scored 10 goals in 80 games. However, significantly, he also was the Nashville Predators' leading playoff scorer (both in goals with seven and points with 13 in 12 games) in what was, at the time,...
