Looking more like torture than exercise, former Washington Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth tweeted out this photo of himself doing the splits on some kind of weird slide board this afternoon. Neuvirth, who was traded to the Sabres at the trade deadline, played in two games for Buffalo before getting sidelined with another injury.
In his tweet today, Neuvirth said he was “finally feeling good!” If this were me doing the splits, I would not be feeling good at all. I’d be going to the hospital. I’ll keep Neuvy’s groin in my prayers.

When the Washington Capitals gave up two straight breakaways to the Dallas Stars while on their own power play last night, I thought that was rock bottom.
Rock bottom was Dustin Jeffrey‘s second period goal. The tally, which came 34 seconds after Ryan Whitney’s 2-on-0 goal on a botched Capitals line change, gave the Dallas Stars a 3-0 lead. It essentially ended the game.
The defense on the goal was atrocious. I’d waste my time or yours with a description. The screenshots and video say everything.
