Bovada improves Capitals’ Stanley Cup odds to 25/1

Posted on 03 December 2013 by WNST Staff

“Some may think that the Nets who have been a complete disappointment up to this point and even the Knicks for that matter should have longer odds to win it all, but this early in the season as despite bad as they are, the Nets and Knicks are only two and four games out of the playoffs respectively. With the talent these teams have, we have to be careful how much we over-adjust this early in the season.”

Capitals to open season at Cup champion Blackhawks October 1

Posted on 19 July 2013 by WNST Staff

ARLINGTON, Va. – The National Hockey League today announced the 2013-14 regular-season schedule for its 30 member clubs. The Washington Capitals will open the season against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center on Tuesday, Oct. 1, with the first home game of the campaign set for Thursday, Oct. 3, against the Calgary Flames at 7 p.m. at Verizon Center.

Effective this season, the NHL will operate under a new divisional alignment and scheduling matrix that ensures all 30 teams play in all 30 arenas at least once each season. In creating more geographically-appropriate groupings, the NHL now has two eight-team divisions in the Eastern Conference and two seven-team divisions in the Western Conference. The Capitals will be in the Metropolitan Division with Columbus, Carolina, New Jersey, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins.

The NHL will pause from Feb. 9-25, 2014, while NHL players comprise the majority of the rosters of the national teams competing in Sochi for Olympic gold.

The Capitals will host the 11-time Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings at Verizon Center on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2 at 12:30 p.m. It will mark the fourth time in the past five years that the Capitals will play on Super Bowl Sunday.

Washington has six homestands of at least three games on the schedule, the longest being a five-game stretch at Verizon Center from Oct. 10-19. The Capitals have five stretches of at least three straight road games and two season-high five-game road trips from Oct. 22-Nov. 1 and Jan. 24-31, respectively. In addition, the Capitals will have 17 sets of back-to-back games.

Nearly half of the Capitals’ 41 home games at Verizon Center fall on weekends, which includes six games on Friday, eight on Saturday and seven on Sunday. The schedule features holiday home games on Columbus Day (Oct. 14 vs. Edmonton), the day before and the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27 vs. Ottawa; Nov. 29 vs. Montreal) and Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 2 vs. Detroit).

Television broadcast plans will be released at a later date. All Capitals games can be heard on Caps Radio Network and WashingtonCaps.com.

Home dates to remember:
•    Oct. 3 – Home opener at Verizon Center versus the Calgary Flames.
•    Oct. 14 – A Columbus Day tilt versus the Edmonton Oilers.
•    Oct. 16 – The New York Rangers make their way to Verizon Center for the first time since the ECQF.
•    Nov. 20 – The Pittsburgh Penguins make their first visit of the season to D.C.
•    Jan. 2 – The Capitals kick off 2014 when they host the division rival Carolina Hurricanes at Verizon Center.
•    Feb. 2 – On Super Bowl Sunday the 11-time Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings make their way to D.C.
•    Mar. 10 – Washington hosts Pittsburgh for the second and final time of the regular season.
•    Apr. 11 – Washington welcomes the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
•    April 13 – Washington concludes the regular-season home schedule at Verizon Center versus Tampa Bay.

For not being remotely American, there’s quite a nice amount of Americana about Of Monsters And Men…

You may remember Rebirth Brass Band from their performance at the Howlin’ Wolf as part of WNST.net’s massive purple parties in New Orleans. I vividly remember the weekend as “The Greatest Weekend of My Life”…

Capitals Coaching Carousel Continues

Capitals Coaching Carousel Continues

Posted on 29 June 2012 by melissarubin

The revolving door of Capitals head coaches began November 28 when then head coach Bruce Boudreau was fired when the team suffered a losing streak; the straw that broke the camel’s back was a 5-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres. Capitals general manager George McPhee  said that the players were no longer responding to Boudreau and it was time for a coaching change. Boudreau was also said to have had a strained relationship with star player Alex Ovechkin.

Boudreau was replaced with former Capitals player Dale Hunter. Hunter was known as a player’s coach and his coaching style was completely different from Boudreau. He was calm while Boudreau had a fiery demeanor.

Hunter had no NHL coaching experience, yet he still led the team to the playoffs where they lost in the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the New York Rangers in game 7. Hunter quit in May to spend more time with his family and the junior club he owns in Canada.

And that’s how we got to head coach number three…Adam Oates, who was hired this week.  The Capitals can only hope that the third time is the charm. Oates played for the Capitals from 1996-2002 and spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach for the New Jersey Devils.

Though he’s never been a head coach, Oates played in the Stanley Cup finals and coached a team in the finals. Some question whether or not his inexperience will hinder his ability to lead the team to the playoffs, but Capitals owner Ted Leonsis sees it differently and believes that Oates is the man they need to lead them to the Cup.

“Not only will Adam be a very productive coach for us, he also shares having a chip on his shoulder. We’re at that point where we have to do better in the playoffs. We have to win a Stanley Cup.” said Leonsis.

I don’t necessarily believe that prior head coaching experience correlates with reaching the playoffs. While the head coach is the glue that holds the team together, the individual players also have big roles to fill.

Oates brings a new coaching style to the Capitals; according to Capitals Insider Chuck Gormely:

Unlike former Capitals coach Dale Hunter, who often let his roster decisions do the talking, Oates said he believes strongly in communicating with his players simply because he was one. He said he plans on modeling his coaching style after Brian Sutter, who coached him in both St. Louis and Boston.

I’m not familiar with Oates as a player, but after seeing his former team, the Devils, reach the Stanley Cup finals, I am excited to see him on the Capitals sidelines this season. The team is in the process of updating their roster so it will be interesting to see who they bring on and who they acquire in free agency next month.

Time will tell how this pans out, but I’m hopeful that Oates can get the job done.

What do you think? Will Oates be the difference maker this season?

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 05 June 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Golf-PGA Tour FedEx St. Jude Classic (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on CBS. All golf from Memphis), Champions Tour Regions Tradition (Thursday & Friday 6:30pm Saturday & Sunday 7:30pm from Shoal Creek, AL on Golf Channel), Wegmans LPGA Championship (Thursday & Friday 12pm Saturday & Sunday 2pm from Pittsford, NY live on Golf Channel); WNBA: New York Liberty @ Washington Mystics (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet); Mixed Martial Arts: UFC on FX 3-Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall (Friday 9pm from Sunrise, FL live on FX); Pro Lacrosse: MLL Charlotte Hounds @ Chesapeake Bayhawks (Saturday 7pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet/ESPN3.com)

10. Gavin DeGraw & Colbie Caillat (Sunday 6pm Pier Six Pavilion); Foster The People (Sunday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Carbon Leaf/Civil Twilight (Saturday 7pm Rams Head Live); Hawthorne Heights (Sunday 5pm Recher Theatre); Victor Wooten (Tuesday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Edwin McCain (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Little River Band (Sunday 1pm Rams Head on Stage), Marshall Tucker Band (Sunday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Bootsy Collins (Monday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Jimmy Cliff (Thursday 7pm 9:30 Club); The Wailers (Tuesday 8pm Howard Theatre); Beach Boys “That’s Why God Made The Radio” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

There was a time in my life when I genuinely enjoyed the tunes of Gavin DeGraw. Maybe that’s not something I should be broadcasting…

Since Foster The People are coming to town and the Beach Boys are putting out a new record, here’s FTP’s EXCELLENT take on the greatest Beach Boys tune of all time…

Any excuse to share a Carbon Leaf tune is a good one…

I wish I could go to RHL Saturday night. Civil Twilight is excellent too…

9. “Prometheus” opens in theaters (Friday); Safe House“, “John Carter” and “Act of Valor” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Greg Proops (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Doug Benson (Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Honfest (Saturday & Sunday Hampden); Maryland Wine Week begins (Friday)

You know Prometheus as THAT MOVIE EVERYONE IN THE WORLD WANTS TO SEE. Well, at least until “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter” comes out, at which point they might as well just stop making movies.

Honestly, there is no single greater gift you could ever purchase me than this movie poster…

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

I’d watch ZBB do just about anything, but this was as good as anything I’ve seen them do…

My favorite tune from Thom Yorke and the boys?

For more traditional country folk, I sorta dig this Jerrod Niemann tune…

I wish I didn’t have to admit to digging this tune…

9. Great Grapes Wine & Food Festival (Saturday & Sunday 12pm Oregon Ridge); Guy Torry (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Corey Holcomb (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); “Man on a Ledge” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Glenn Clark’s first ever “Hogfest” (Saturday)

That’s right. For the first time in my (still?) young life, I will be roasting a pig Saturday. It’s all thanks in part to ABC Rental Store in Rosedale. A talented young man I listen to on the radio is always talking to me about them. I think his show is called “The Reality Check.” I PRAY my results make me as happy as George W. Bush…

Also, I will be hosting a qualifier for the Olympic KanJam team Saturday (more on Twitter @OlympicKanJam). I expect the day to look much like this…
