Capitals vs. Islanders Second Period Thread

The New York Islanders jumped out to an early lead when ex-Capital Mikhail Grabovski slid one wide of a sprawling Braden Holtby. That may have been my fault (WARNING: NSFW language below): I fuckin' told Grabovski "good luck out there" when I passed him in the tunnel.I take the blame for this, fam. — Jason Rogers (@HeyJayJRogers) February 5, 2016 The Capitals tied the game up on a textbook top-line dissection by messrs Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, the latter one-timing home a juicy Swedish meatball from the slot. #Oshie ties #CapsIsles up 1-1 pic.twitter.com/z3IRw1sMt4 —...

Lunchtime Links: Oh Captain, My Captain Edition

Henrik on his way home from New York, will likely be out until after the All-Star Break. The kids will get their chance to shine. Ryan Miller's best game as a Canuck and Ben Hutton's first NHL goal were overshadowed, unfortunately, by the injury to Henrik. Mikhail Grabovski got five for boarding and a game misconduct for the hit, and will face no further discipline. That's strange to me, because the hit from behind on a defenseless player was, I thought, precisely the hit the NHL has been trying to eliminate from the game. No further discipline expected for Isles' Grabovski for hit on H....

Doctor's Office: Pelech out indefinitely; Sedin sent home, but Grabovski skates

You can leave. You two need to stay. Injuries were a subplot to the Islanders' 2-1 shootout loss to the Vancouver Ryan Millers on Sunday, and more information has surfaced today about the health of two players and the availability of another. Before the game, the Islanders skated seven defenseman because one would be a gametime decision. That player turned out to be Adam Pelech, who had played well in the week since his recall from Bridgeport but who had apparently sustained some kind of injury in Thursday's win over the Rangers. Whether it's related to the bad ass skate cut he got courtesy...

Mikhail Grabovski given major penalty and game misconduct for boarding Henrik Sedin

Not a good hit, but probably not a suspension. With a few minutes to go in the first period of the Islanders game against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, Mikhail Grabovski was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Vancouver's Henrik Sedin at the Canucks' bench. As Sedin touched the puck, Grabovski closed in on him, forcing Sedin's shoulder into the boards. Sedin's head may have clipped the top of the bench. It was an ill-advised play by Grabovski, who has no history of such. He has all of 18 penalty minutes in 44 games this season and had eight last year in 51...
