Caldwell to complete another head-coaching interview with Tennessee

Posted on 06 January 2014 by Luke Jones

Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell continues to receive interest as a potential NFL head coach and will interview with the Tennessee Titans later this week.

After completing interviews with the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins in recent days, Caldwell will reportedly meet with the Titans about their open position after they fired Mike Munchak on Saturday.

Caldwell spent three years as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and led them to Super Bowl XLIV before joining the Ravens as quarterbacks coach in 2012. He received much praise for the job he did with the Baltimore offense in helping the Ravens win a Super Bowl after being promoted to offensive coordinator on Dec. 10, 2012, but his offense struggled mightily in 2013 as the Ravens finished 29th in total yards and 25th in points scored while also setting franchise lows in rushing yards and yards per carry.

Baltimore parted ways with running backs coach Wilbert Mongtomery last week, and some have wondered whether a change is warranted at offensive coordinator despite teams having interest in Caldwell for their vacant head coaching positions.

Skinner records Hat Trick, drop Caps in OT 4-3

Skinner records Hat Trick, drop Caps in OT 4-3

Posted on 02 January 2014 by Nick Dorsey

 

Washington has had difficulty getting pucks into the net as of late. After struggling to finish strong scoring chances in road trips versus Buffalo and Ottawa, the red sweaters started getting better puck luck.

The Caps squared off against Carolina in the last meeting in the Verizon Center, between the two division rivals. Washington started off the first period of action dominating puck possession and shots on goal. Unfortunately for them, Khudobin was making big saves early and often. Khudobin got his first start in over eleven weeks for the Canes, due to his injury sustained earlier this season. He was not as rusty between the pipes as you might have expected from missing so much time.

The first period was tilted in the Caps favor with momentum, until two costly penalties. The Caps first got a 2-minute penalty for too many men on the ice. Shortly after, Brooks Laich got a high stick penalty. The Canes had a 5 on 3 man advantage. Nicklas Backstrom tried clearing the puck out of the zone from the point, but then his stick snapped. So the Hurricanes essentially were working a 5 on 2 man advantage and Alex Semin found Jeff Skinner on the backside for the easy goal. A great first period of offense for Washington, but not the result they were hoping for heading into the locker room.

The second frame of action was one of the most bizarre periods you will see in hockey. Marcus Johansson found Alex Ovechkin up the ice and Ovi put it top shelf. It was Ovechkins league leading 31st goal of the season and came just fifty seconds into the period. This was just the start of a four-minute stretch of craziness.

The Caps have struggled after scoring goals this season, giving away momentum almost instantly after a score. The same trend repeated itself tonight. Under a minute later after the Ovechkin goal, Manny Malhotra regained the lead for Carolina at 2-1. Just over a minute after the Canes tally, MoJo found Backstrom in front of the net. Backstrom forced a rebound and Troy Brouwer finished with a nice backhander to tie the game up once again. Just before four minutes passed in the second period, Steve Oleksy scored his second goal of the season and gave the Caps a 3-2 lead. Just when Caps fans thought they could breath a sigh of relief, they were deflated once again.

Jeff Skinner scored his second goal of the night, after a rebound from goalie Philipp Grubauer found Skinners stick right in front of the net. Martin Erat was unable to find the loose puck and clear it out. Overall, an ugly hockey play, allowing Carolina to tie the game up once again.

The third frame of action had some quality chances toward the end, but Washington was heading to overtime for the sixteenth time this season. A shootout was not necessary as the overtime period quickly ended. After Grabovski and Ovechkin were working a two on two breakout, Ovi threw a pass across the ice in hopes to get it to Dimitri Orlov joining the rush. It just didn’t get to Orlov and the Canes came down on a 3-man rush against lone Caps defender Mike Green. Ryan Murphy fed Jeff Skinner an excellent pass across the crease for his hat trick goal.

It was a disappointing loss to say the least, as the Caps have struggled against Carolina this season. It also has become frustrating, that once Washington gets a lead or goal, they have consistently allowed the opposition to respond very quickly. Philipp Grubauer finished the night with 29 saves on 33 shots faced. It was not the young goalies best night so far this season, allowing big rebounds throughout the night.

Coach Adam Oates shook up the lines tonight and some of the pairings paid off. Ovechkin was paired with Grabovski, Fehr and Backstrom was paired with Mojo and Troy Brouwer. It will be interesting to see how long Oates keeps these lines together and if he makes any other small changes along the way. The Caps have struggled as of late, only winning one game of their last six contests. They travel to Minnesota this Saturday night to take on the Wild.

Grubauer a Bright Spot in DC

Grubauer a Bright Spot in DC

Posted on 02 January 2014 by Nick Dorsey

The next man up is a common phrase used when teams look for some athlete to step up into a role usually unfamiliar. When it comes to goaltending in Washington, the next man up is a regular occurrence. Semyon Varlamov was once a young goalie for Washington that looked like he had a bright future in DC. Then after Varlamov came Michal Neuvirth. The 2010-11 regular season also had an interesting situation as well. Tomas Vokoun was the original starter until he suffered an injury, so back in was Neuvirth. Toward the tail end of the 2011 season, Neuvirth suffered an injury and the Capitals were down two starting goalies. The team was making a late season push and they needed a goalie to step up. Braden Holtby, the prospect from Hershey, had to fill the role.

Holtby was tremendous in the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs, especially against the Boston Bruins first round. Holtby was one of the main reasons why the Bruins did not have a repeat chance at the Cup. Holtby was also solid in last season’s playoff series against the New York Rangers nearly going toe to toe with Henrik Lundqvist.

Holtby came into the 2013 regular season as the main guy with Neuvirth filling the back up role. When Neuvy injured himself in pregame warm-ups before one of his starts, Holtby was back in. Neuvirth was put on IR and that left Washington with just Holtby as the lone net minder. Braden got a large workload, starting 14 out of 15 games. The wear and tear of starting so many games started to show on Holtby, so the Capitals needed to look for someone to step up.

Philipp Grubauer, a 4th round pick in 2010, was the next man up. Grubauer first saw action in a relief effort for Holtby, after a rough start versus the Hurricanes in early December. He was solid in that third period start against Carolina, so Grubi was called upon to start his first game against New York. On the road against the Rangers, Grubauer was fantastic allowing only one goal in a Washington win. After that, Grubauer started to see his starts increase.

He has now started nine games as a rookie and his numbers are extremely impressive so far. Philipp has a 5-2-2 record as a starter for Washington and has posted a .938% save percentage. His 2.02 goals against average is a great number as well.

His starting record is solid, but even better when looking into the shootout losses. Grubi gave his team great chances in those shootouts, forcing a 10 and 6 round shootout in those match-ups. So not only has Grubi been solid between the pipes over the course of a 60-minute game, but he’s got big-time poise when the pressure is on.

The Capitals goal-tending situation has become a topic of discussion as of late with the stunning play from the 22 year old. Michal Neuvirth seems like the odd man out, so his future in Washington is uncertain. Braden Holtby went into the season as the number one goalie unquestioned, but now things could be different. If Philipp Grubauer keeps playing at this level for the rest of the season, the Capitals could have a crucial decision to make at goalie heading into the post season. There has been so much turnover at the goalie position for years in DC with all the young goalies stepping up consistently. It probably has most fans in a craze because they so desperately want to know which goalies jersey they will be wearing to the games. While it could be frustrating to a fan in that sense, this situation is a good problem to have. Having two good goalies is better than having one or even none. Goalie is such an important position especially when it comes to the playoffs. The Capitals have a couple good goalies now and the decision for whom to start at that time will eventually work itself out. The number of young goalies that have come in and stepped up in recent years, shows how well Washington has done drafting goalies and also developing them in the minor leagues. Whether it is Braden Holtby or Philipp Grubauer that earns the number one spot heading into the playoffs, the Capitals are in good hands. The fans that rock the red have plenty to get excited about when it comes to their young goalies.

Caldwell to interview with Detroit, Washington for head coach vacancies

Caldwell to interview with Detroit, Washington for head coach vacancies

Posted on 01 January 2014 by Luke Jones

Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell has never shied away from the goal of once again being an NFL head coach, and it appears he’ll pursue that possibility in the coming days.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Caldwell will interview for the open head coaching jobs with the Detroit Lions and the Washington Redskins. Caldwell spent three years as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts before being fired at the end of the 2011 season and joining the Ravens as their quarterbacks coach two winters ago.

Caldwell received much praise for the job he did with the Baltimore offense in helping the Ravens win a Super Bowl after being promoted to offensive coordinator on Dec. 10, 2012. However, his offense struggled mightily in 2013 as the Ravens finished 29th in total yards and 25th in points scored while also setting franchise lows in rushing yards and yards per carry.

Head coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he doesn’t anticipate any changes to his coaching staff for now but acknowledged the possibility of some assistants exploring opportunities for other jobs.

“There may or may not be some more things happening as the week goes on,” Harbaugh said, “and I’m sure some of our coaches could be a part of that, as far as opportunities go to move up and move on and to pursue career opportunities. We’re proud of that. I think we’ve had a lot of success here. The fact that we’re not pushing deep into the playoffs will probably give some of our coaches some opportunities to do that.”

Some have called for a change at offensive coordinator after the Ravens’ immense struggles on that side of the ball, but Caldwell’s track record in Indianapolis as well as his work late in the 2012 season make him a viable candidate for another head coaching job at some point.

A former Penn State assistant from 1986 to 1992, Caldwell’s name has also been mentioned as a possibility for the Nittany Lions’ head coaching vacancy after Bill O’Brien was hired as the new head man for the Houston Texans on Tuesday.

Senators Defeat Washington 3-1

Senators Defeat Washington 3-1

Posted on 30 December 2013 by Nick Dorsey

 

The Capitals were on the road again for a second consecutive night tonight in Ottawa. Just a night after the Caps generated a lot of shots on goal with little result, the game ensuing was a near mirror image. Washington was not getting the lucky bounces against Buffalo goal tender Ryan Miller, but they got a good bounce early in the first period against the Senators.

Just two minutes went by into the first frame of action and Martin Erat threw it into the slot to Joel Ward. Ward shot a backhand toward the goal and it deflected in off of goalie Craig Andersons stick. Joel Ward now has 12 goals so far this season. An early lead on the road was a good start for the Caps after a night as frustrating as the game prior. The Capitals did a nice job offensively for the majority of the first period in possessing the puck and getting pucks to the net. The Senators would cash in with under seven minutes to go in the first period. Defensemen Dmitri Orlov pinched into the offensive zone, which was costly. It caused a 2 on 1 breakaway with Cory Conacher setting up Mika Zibanejad with the easy tap in goal. This was not the only defensive mistake on the night for the visiting squad.

Over three minutes fresh into the second period, Ottawa got behind the defense again. Bobby Ryan backhanded a perfect lead pass up the seam, behind Mike Green, that led to a beautiful finish by Kyle Turris for his 10th of the season. Turris was hooked on the play, but still finished inside with the smooth hands. The Caps had plenty of scoring chances in the second period, but were unable to finish. Mikhail Grabovski had a one on one chance against net minder Anderson. Anderson saved Grabo’s backhand attempt. Grabovski gathered the puck after his miss near the boards and found Troy Brouwer in the slot. Brouwer missed high on a wide-open chance; it is certainly one shot Troy would like to have back. Joel Ward even had a tap in from in front that went just wide that could have tied the game. Instead, Washington headed to the locker room down one at the end of two.

The Capitals had eleven shots in the third period, but fell short. Coach Adam Oates pulled Philipp Grubauer to give the offense an extra man chance. They had their opportunities, especially Eric Fehr with a nice shot in the slot. Craig Anderson made the great save on Fehr in point blank range. Anderson was the NHL leader in goalie save percentage just a season ago, so he is used to making big saves. The game was sealed shut once Clarke MacArthur scored the empty net goal.

The Senators outshot the Caps 38 to 35. Washington’s special teams had a decent night. The penalty kill unit held their own, as they killed all four of Ottawa’s power play chances. The power play unit went 0-2 tonight; the Senators did a nice job of not giving the Caps extra man chances. Tonight’s loss was a hard fought game by the Caps and goalie Philipp Grubauer shined once again. He recorded 35 saves on 37 shots faced and finished with a .946 save percentage. The young goaltender has been spectacular so far and is making the goalie position interesting for the hockey club. The Caps get a break for a few days after consecutive road games. Washington returns back to the Verizon Center as they take on their division rival Carolina Hurricanes.

Backstrom, Grubauer Lead Caps Over Rangers

Posted on 28 December 2013 by Ed Frankovic

So much of sports can be described as a “Game of Inches.”

On Friday night at the Verizon Center, that was definitely the case as the Washington Capitals received a late goal from Eric Fehr to defeat the New York Rangers, 3-2. Fehr’s tally, his 6th of the season, was on a snap shot down the right side after a nice feed from Nicklas Backstrom (1G, 1A). Immediately before that goal, which came in a four on four situation, Dan Girardi hit the far post behind Philipp Grubauer (38 saves) after a Washington giveaway. If that puck is an inch to the right, it’s a 3-2 Rangers lead. But that’s the way it goes, and remember on Monday, if Alex Ovechkin’s shot from the slot is an inch lower than the Caps tie the Ducks late in regulation. As they say, “That’s Hockey.”

This victory improves the Caps to 20-14-4 (44 points) and puts them six points ahead of the Rangers, who they will only face one more time again this season, at Madison Square Garden.

The biggest difference in this game tonight was between the pipes. Grubauer was excellent for the Caps while Cam Talbot gave up some questionable goals. I know Talbot has been hot, but Henrik Lundqvist owns the Caps, and for some reason Alain Vigneault chose to go more with recent form than historical stats in his net minding decision. I can tell you I was certainly thrilled to not see King Henrik manning the cage for New York, so one would think the Capitals players were happy too?

The shot attempts in this contest ended up 71-55 for New York, but it was a fairly even game when it comes to quality chances. The Rangers shot attempts in the opening frame were primarily from the perimeter and it was really only the second period where they dominated play, and most of that was when the Caps had either their 4th line on the ice or their 3rd defensive pair on the blue line.

In the final period, after the Rangers got a quick tying tally on Carl Hagelin’s shorthanded goal, the Capitals carried more of the play. Coach Adam Oates did a nice job of shifting the ice time to his top two defensive pairs and limited the 3rd pair to just three and a half minutes. The difference was clearly noticeable and with the Rangers short a defensemen due to Anton Stralman’s in game injury, the Capitals seemed to wear the Rangers out more in that final frame.

Another positive was that the Caps did a better job on the back check on Friday after misreading two situations on Monday and allowing the tying and winning goal to the Ducks. Oates said that his team was better, but he also said the Rangers are a different type of team than Anaheim, which indicated it was an easier chore for his club against New York. However, Karl Alzner told me that Oates showed some video clips on back checking and King Karl said that the breakdowns on Monday were more of an individual thing. Whatever the case, Washington did a much better job in defensive zone coverage when the Rangers came up the ice on the rush.

Alzner said the team has been working more on their “end zone.” #27 said that the key to a solid back check and defensive zone is that when the puck is in the offensive zone there is always a third guy high. Some coaches require their center to always be that third guy (this is how Bryan Murray ran things for the Caps in the mid 1980′s) but many just let each shift play itself out and have the third guy be a read by the forwards themselves. From what I can gather, Oates’ system looks to be a “read and react accordingly” on the back check. So any of the three forwards could be the first player back. One thing the team is working on, according to Alzner, is more than just the third guy coming back strong because he said the coaches have pointed out it usually has been the third or even the fourth guy on the opposition that have been getting the quality chances against Washington this year.

It’s encouraging to see the focus of the team on these things and there is no doubt that practice time helps the reads and the communication, which is vital, on the ice.

As for Backstrom, he continues to dominate and any smart hockey person will tell you just how good #19 is compared to others in the league. The media may not be all over him from a publicity standpoint, but those in the game know just how good the center is and he is arguably as important to the Caps as any other player. On Friday night, Backstrom, along with Grubauer, were the primary reasons the Capitals stopped their two game losing streak.

Notes: John Carlson led the Caps in ice time with 26:38. Mike Green (1G) played 19:10…the Rangers wore their top three d out with Girardi logging 27:35, Ryan McDonagh getting a game leading 29:53 and Michael Del Zotto playing 24:37…next up for the Caps are the Buffalo Sabres on the road on Sunday at 5pm.

Ducks Score Three Unanswered, Comeback Win over Caps 3-2

Ducks Score Three Unanswered, Comeback Win over Caps 3-2

Posted on 23 December 2013 by Nick Dorsey

 

Washington after 36 games played this season have shown some consistent trends throughout the course of a hockey game. They are reliant on their special teams, they get out to a slow start and they cannot maintain a lead. Several of those trends were on display tonight against the NHL’s best Anaheim Ducks.

One trend that did not show tonight, a slow start. Eric Fehr started a two on one breakaway with a perfectly deflected pass off of the boards that hit fellow line mate Mikhail Grabovski in stride. Grabovski and Troy Brouwer made a nice give and go play to set up Grabovski’s 11th goal of the season, just over seven minutes into the first frame. Second line production has not always been there this season, but as of late this line has played well with each other.

Another trend that was on display tonight were the special teams. Nicklas Backstrom recorded his 9th goal of the season on the power play. Backstrom was looking for the saucer pass back to the point toward Green, but took the space he was given for a nice wrister past Hiller. That kind of aggression is something Caps fans would not mind seeing more out of Backstrom, who has displayed quite the sneaky wrist shot over the course of his career. The final trend would come into play once again and would prove to be an Achilles heel of the team. With below three minutes to play in the first period, Andrew Cogliano put it past Grubauer to cut the lead to one.

Throughout the second period, both teams exchanged penalties that gave the opposition plenty of opportunities to score. Neither of them scored on the extra man opportunities, but the period was not left scoreless. Just under 30 seconds to go in the second, Saku Koivu tied the game up for his 5th goal of the season.

Another lead lost for Washington heading into the third, but there was still time for redemption. Hampus Lindholm made it three unanswered goals for the Anaheim Ducks, just less than six minutes left into the game. Another lead squandered away for the Caps, but like so many times this season, there was still time for a comeback. The fans at Verizon Center almost had their prayers answered when Alex Ovechkin fired off a shot in the slot that hit the cross bar. It took an awkward bounce and the refs waved it off. It eventually went to replay and the league ruled it a no goal all the way from Toronto. It was a good call even though the sell-out crowd in DC was not pleased with the end result. Washington was unable to convert at the end of the game with the extra man attempt after pulling Grubauer.

It was a tough, hard fought hockey game by two teams the whole sixty minutes. Against the best team currently in the NHL, it was a good effort by the home team amidst the holiday season. It is still a disappointing loss in a sense because this has been the story so often during this season. The Capitals find a way to lose leads quickly and end up trying to fight their way back in at the last minute. Anaheim is now currently on a 9-game winning after this comeback win.

Philipp Grubauer played a nice game tonight in goal stopping 26 of the 29 shots he had faced. It was his first loss in regulation in his short career thus far. Troy Brouwer also had himself a nice game, recording 2 assists and having great success in the face-off circle. Brooks Laich returned back to action tonight after missing the last 11 contests. He was used in even strength play, on the penalty kill and on the power play. Laich is always useful in the penalty kill, which was perfect in shutting down all of Anaheim’s four extra man opportunities. The power play for Washington was one for five and the Caps also won 45 face-offs to the Ducks 23.

The Caps now have a 19-14-4 record (42 points) heading into a holiday break. They resume action this Friday night back at the Verizon Center against their rival New York Rangers. The Rangers sit in third place in the Metropolitan division with 38 points in the standings. It is a big game for Washington, as they need to keep pace ahead of the rest of the division below them.

Flyers Top Caps 5-2

Flyers Top Caps 5-2

Posted on 18 December 2013 by Nick Dorsey

 

The Capitals have made it the norm recently coming back from large deficits to win games late, but last night that was not the case. After a first period that was pretty evenly played between both the Flyers (10 shots on goal) and Caps (9 shots on goal), the second period is where the action picked up.

A Hi-sticking minor penalty on Flyers Kimmo Timonen near the end of the first period, carried over into the second period. Alex Ovechkin scored his 28th goal of the season just forty seconds into the period. It was a nice backhand put back after the puck trickled around in front of goalie Steve Mason. Washington had an early lead in Wells Fargo Center, but the lead did not last. Not even a minute later, Jakub Voracek came down with a 2 on 1 man advantage and stuck it past goalie Braden Holtby.

The game was tied at one, but the scoring was nowhere near done for the remainder of the period. After Martin Erat just threw a pass just out of the reach of Troy Brouwer, Troy made a nice hustle play. He chased down the puck behind the net and found Eric Fehr in front for his fifth goal of the season. Washington regained the lead once again, but Philly broke through once again.

Approaching the twelve-minute mark into the period, Matt Read beat Holtby for his tenth goal of the season. The game was tied once again, but the game changed with just five minutes to go in the second. Thomas Wilson came in with a vicious hit on Brayden Schenn, which sparked a fight amongst the majority of the players on the ice. The rivalry game began to get more chippy and physical at this point. Wilson was charged with a five minute major for boarding. The Caps know what it is like to benefit off of a major penalty, but this time they were on the other end of it.

Mark Streit opened up the power play scoring just below two minutes into the power play. Washington had given up the lead and there was still plenty of time remaining on the Flyer man advantage. Voracek scored the second power play goal of the game and also his second, minutes before the period’s conclusion. The five-minute major was the difference at this point as the Caps headed to the locker room down 4-2 on the road.

Not much changed for Washington in the third frame of the game. They were able to kill the little amount of time remaining on the Flyers power play. They had come back from this deficit before, but luck eventually runs low. After a couple of great breakaway saves by Holtby, the third time was a charm for Philly. After defender John Carlson misplayed the puck, it led to an easy breakaway goal for Wayne Simmonds to put the game out of reach.

Washington had a good opportunity to create some space in the division ahead of Philadelphia, but they let these past two opportunities squander. The Caps were fortunate to come back and win Sunday’s game at the Verizon Center. When you look at it with perspective, Washington came away with two points, but the Flyers got three out of a possible four. They have a good opportunity coming up this weekend. The Capitals travel to take on the Carolina Hurricanes this Friday, who they are yet to beat this season so far.
