happen with the weather. now, here is julie wright with an update on traffic. >> all right. problems right now on the outer loop of the beltway as you work your way around past colesville road. the crew in sky fox with us early this morning to show you this crash. this is going to affect the ramp from southbound 29 to the exit for the outer loop. that exit ramp is tightly squeezed at this point. traffic coming from four corners headed down to the exit for the outer loop has to merge early into slow traffic on the beltway headed around towards georgia avenue and out towards connecticut avenue. again, a lot of equipment still on the scene squeezing that ramp from southbound 29 to the exit for the outer loop. so 29 is starting to back up now from university boulevard to the exit for the outer loop. we'll take it bakken side and we'll show out outer loop itself which is already starting to slow as you work your way past university boulevard headed around towards the accident scene. so again, main line of the beltway already slowing here as you work your way westbound 495 past the accident there at colesville road. no incidents to report right now in virginia. 66 looks good coming east out

of centreville. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. blocked by ryan. ward following the play. ward fires, score! 45 seconds to go. wipes up, top shot, kicks a rebound. score! backstrom to the roof! score! backstrom ties it. backstrom wins it! >> what a game last not at verizon center. the caps improve to 8-2 on this young soap. caps are hot, no doubt about t you can't say the same for the redskins. we'll focus on the caps now as we join the sports junkies at 106.7 the fan. >> good morning. >> i wish i could have stayed up to see the game. >> why are you wimping out on us. like you have to wake up at 3:00 in the morning? >> something terrible. maybe the fact that they were down three and i knew they would come back so i can watch the highlights. >> i had begun to lose hope

when they were down three goals. maybe they have a hangover from the road trip to canada, losing both games there. but this caps team has some resiliency to it. nick backstrom was the hero last night. haven't lot of a game at verizon center yet. >> they are down 3-0 but at one point, they were completely outshooting them. i think the caps had outshot them something like 38-17. they were dominating with the chances. they just weren't able to get a goal until the end. another interesting aspect and i'm sure you're read about it this morning is that boudreau late sat ovechkin, didn't have him in for key stretches there, sebbing a -- sending a signal to his young star. >> almost too much to imagine something hike that happening.

>> we talked about it. their third line is really kicking butt. >> brooks has to be one of the best if not the best third line player in the nhl. >> right it was great because, you know how things can turn and quickly fans can turn on you. they got off to the great start f they had lost three in a row, this t. would be have been panic city here. >> come employment dominating it. >> 40-15. they did dominate on the guys you are shutting down a pretty prolific offensive team. i thought i was in a time machine last night. solani has to be in his hate 30s but he's still got it. >> nice to talk about a winning team in d.c. speaking of that, i'll skip right past the red -- the redskins today because why ruin a good thing. i want to talk about the nationals.

i think this 2012 team is a couple of piece as way from being a playoff contender. who do you see them going after? >> i don't know if they'll spend the money that it will take to get the guys. i see pujols staying in st. louis. fielder, i could see him going to the american league. i think they need another outfielder, and they need more power in the line-up. >> they proved they're willing to spend money. >> but are they willing to spend $17 to $200 million on one guy. >> aren't they the richest owners in baseball? >> that doesn't necessarily mean they're willing to shell out another $20 million a year for a guy who won't produce like jayson or willing to take that chance. >> the thing they learned from jayson werth, you have to get the bang for your buck. >> it won't be like dan snyder signing it one minute after

midnight i don't think. at least we hope not. thank you, guys. we'll see you tomorrow. how much do you value your ipad or if you don't have one, how much would you pay for one? >> how about $8 million? >> not a chance. >> we're going to explain this one. that is coming up next. >> today's my fox half off deal diagnose 49 to buy you a 90- minute massage. the treatment normally goes for $115. you can get it for 49 bucks. go to and look for the deal on the right side of the home page.
