Thursday Roundup/Devils 7, Caps 2

[Boxscore - Recap]

Coming off the second two-game win "streak" of the season, the Caps have regressed over the past two matches. Significantly. Somehow, the Caps managed to give up three power play goals to a Devils team that was four for its previous one hundred with the extra man coming into the game, and surrendered seven total goals to a team that got shutout by Michael Garnett and the Thrashers last week.

The Caps have now dropped six straight to Los Diablos as Martin Brodeur collected his 4,765th career win against the Caps. But there is good news. Caps fans can look forward to beating the Devils regularly in a few years, as down on the farm Hershey beat a woeful Albany squad on Wednesday night. How woeful you ask? The River Rats had to start former Devil and current Rats' goalie coach Chris Terreri in goal last night. Terreri last saw NHL action in the spring of 2001 (though, in fairness to him, he's only two months older than Dominik Hasek).

Back to last night's game, the WaPo's coverage is here, the WTimes' here.

In other Caps news, the team sent blockheaded enforcer Stephen Peeeeeeeeeeat to Carolina for AHL depth forward and former Cap Colin Forbes. It might make sense to call Forbes up and send Brooks Laich down to Hershey where the latter can get more than 9:37 of ice per game, but we'll see what the team does.

Elsewhere around the NHL:
  • Krystofer Kolanos's second stint in the Coyotes system lasted less than 10 days as the 'Yotes and 'Canes exchanged disappointing former first round picks with Phoenix's acquisition of Pavel Brendl for the concussion-prone Kolanos.
  • The Flyers acquired center Kiel McLeod from the 'Yotes for right wing Eric Chouinard in a trade of minor leaguers on Wednesday. Could you care less?
