Penner returns to the OC, shares his plans for Doughty

Earlier in the day on Tuesday, we heard from two of Dustin Penner’s former Ducks teammates – who, naturally, had plenty to say about the big left wing. Then, following the night cap in Anaheim, Washington’s newest player checked in with MayorsManor, fresh off the Capital’s 3-2 win at the Honda Center. Here’s what he [...]

Ducks players prepared for ‘fatty’ Dustin Penner tonight

Back at the NHL Trade Deadline the Ducks traded Dustin Penner. Nobody saw it coming, including the two-time Stanley Cup winning left wing. Sure, after starting the season out pretty hot, his point totals had cooled a bit in 2014 – but they don’t call him Playoff Penner for nothing. Now a member of the [...]

Comeback Coyotes at it again, crushing the Caps

While much of the attention in the Pacific Division is going to the three California teams, their neighbors in the Arizona desert are trying mightily to grab some headlines too. Seemingly never out of a game so far this season, the Coyotes were up to their old tricks again on Saturday night against the Washington Capitals. Down [...]

Contest: First Goal – the two games on April 28, 2012

Round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs continues today with two games, one in each conference.
As you’ve probably heard by now, MayorsManor is hosting a special First Goal Contest that will run through the entire length of the post-season (original announcement here). Please note, this is separate from the contest we run exclusively during LA Kings [...]

Quotes from the Capitals locker room after 5-2 loss in LA

Only a few players in the NHL are as synonymous with their teams as Alex Ovechkin is with the Washington Capitals. It’s nearly impossible to think of one without the other.
He’s played the LA Kings just seven times in his career though, winning the first two meetings and now having dropped five straight – [...]

VIDEO: Jack Johnson scores, talks about doing The Tebow

Goal celebrations may be on the decline in the NFL, yet the LA Kings sure seem to be getting into the act. Fresh on the heels of Drew Doughty and Jarret Stoll doing the ‘love tap’ celebration a few weeks ago in Chicago, defenseman Jack Johnson posed for a quick ‘Tebow’ after he found [...]

Mike Richards has something his linemates don’t

The Capitals will be without forward Nicklas Backstom and defenseman Mike Green tonight, as they flew back to D.C. earlier today with nagging injuries.  Kings forward Mike Richards certainly won’t be crying over their absence. He’s played against both guys enough in his career to know the damage they can inflict on their opponents.
In [...]

Dustin Brown on Ovechkin and how to beat the Capitals

With the Capitals in town for a game against the Kings tonight, it’s one of those rare opportunities to see Alex Ovechkin on the West Coast. Although he’s played over 500 games in the NHL, only six of them have come against the Kings – split evenly, with three [...]

All Hail The Kings and Their Men

The Kings continued their recent hot play with another victory today in Washington.
It was a solid game all around, especially defensively and in goal. However, the surge in offense (four goals) was a welcome change for a team who just couldn’t find the back of the net in their last game.
After the jump are video [...]

Johnson and Westgarth on the Capitals and 24/7

Earlier this morning we heard from Kings captain Dustin Brown about the excitement of playing Eastern Conference teams.
Kevin Westgarth and Jack Johnson continue those thoughts below and talk about the recent 24/7 series on HBO…
[note: Jack Johnson comments after the jump]
MM: Did you watch any of the HBO series on the Capitals-Penguins?
KW: I thought that was great. [...]
