Brooks Laich won't travel with the Capitals after being placed on injured reserve. He was injured after a hit from Florida Panthers forward Shawn Thornton.
1413558451
Jonathan Quick had a heck of a game Thursday night against the St. Louis Blues, but opinions on his abilities remain varied. That and other items you need to know.
1413517969
Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward didn't mean to score, but he did as Cory Schneider gave up the weirdest goal of the young season so far.
1413515735
Devils forward Martin Havlat was badly cut after a hit from Capitals forward Jason Chimera. He could be out some time after receiving many stitches.
1413383018
The New Jersey Devils are off to a hot start thanks to the scoring prowess of Mike Cammalleri, who has four goals in three games with his new team. Daily numbers, GIFs, videos and more in the NHL Wraparound.
1413330847
Enforcer John Scott scored his third career goal in 237 games, this time in his season debut with the San Jose Sharks.
1413304470
Alex Ovechkin did his best to stand still and not move a muscle in this Russian music video in which pop star Katayla Lel uses him as a human jungle gym.
1413297004
The Buffalo Sabres are off to a dreadful start, with head coach Ted Nolan likening them to a Pee Wee team on Monday. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Lightning had themselves a game, that and more in our NHL wraparound.
1413210397
The Colorado Avalanche have yet to score a goal through their first two games and it won't get easier Monday when they play the Bruins. This early season reality check could be good for this young group.
1413079461
The Washington Capitals will give out an Abraham Lincoln hat and beard to the best player of the game as selected by the team. They're calling it the "Honest Abe Player of the Game Award," naturally.
