04:48 PM ET 05.02 | Joel Ward is expected to return to the Washington Capitals starting lineup for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Thursday night. Ward has been dealing with a left knee injury for the past month and missed the final nine games of the regular season. He last played on April 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. During practice on Thursday, Ward took part in line rushes with Matt Hendricks and Jay Beagle. It is believed that he will replace Aaron Volpatti in the starting lineup. Ward recorded 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 39 games this season.

Can we really trust anything reported by someone named Stephen Whyno?

It's probably better than Stevie Wino.

holtby was good lasty night, no doubt. a few things though:
1) The Rangers are finally shooting (though still not enough) but they may want to actually hit the net more often.
2) That mystery penalty on Asham in the 2nd period...as soft a call as you'll ever see in a playoff game...turned the whole tide of the game. The Rangers lost the game right then and there
3)Holtby was good...and since you couldn't refute the on ice call....that was probably a goal...not that it would have mattered. I realise that sometimes lucky bounces have to happen to win games and series, but they need to make him work harder. No way Washington can keep up that level...I HOPE!!!

I think the Caps killing off the 5 on 3 is what turned the tide for good. It's a razor thin margin but my point is that Holtby belongs and was a tick better than Henrik last night.

no doubt he belongs. But the reason for the doubt I guess I caps history.
Came was oddly called, but the Rangers have to hit the net more
