For the first time in 290 days, Alex Semin, the 5th greatest goal scorer in Washington Capitals history, was back in his old barn. Now wearing visitors white, the 28-year-old forward was booed each time he touched the puck. Despite four shots on goal, Semin finished the game without a goal.

Here are my 28 favorite Semin-related photos from the night.

    Ha!!!! He still sucks at interviews… broken English or not.

    “Semin is gonna take two little Russian poops in Brouwer’s skates.” Bahahaha

    Kind of a waste of a jersey though if you’re gonna tape it out (unless it’s Jagr, in which most of the white ones are now yellow). Maybe he didn’t want to be “that guy,” (who is actually me). Still proudly rep the black home Godzilla jersey.

    Tremendous AS28 coverage tonight gents. Photos were awesome. Appreciated 28 and his time in DC but tonight it felt great to see him get stuffed by Holts.

    So weird seeing him in enemy colors…..

  • guestRMNB

    Why all the boos? He didn’t ask to be traded.

  • serpent

    Maybe if someone took the time to pronounce the guys name correctly, he would take the time to answer stupid questions. Simple good manners!. Add his shyness to the mix and you have a typical Sasha “interview”.

  • Ash

    Um, he wasn’t traded. He just wasn’t re-signed. While I’m still sad about that because I liked Sasha a lot, Sasha didn’t exactly go out of his way to stay with Washington either. This was a player parting with an organization because what they wanted from each other in terms of money, term, and performance weren’t in the same place. That’s all.

    I wish him the best (except against us) and I’d welcome him back if he wanted to come. But he made his choice and the Caps made theirs.

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooo Semin. The Taylor Swift goat video was by far the best part of this post!

  • Julia

    I think, he didn’t deserve all of your rotten comments here. You wouldn’t be good teammates, guys. Caps didn’t want to re-sign him, so he had to move on. To Margie: I’d like to listen to you speaking Russian… Semin’s job is playing hockey and not giving interviews and he’s doing that well. At the moment better than Ovi!

    And no one should be booed for it. He didn’t betray anyone.

    Incredibly classless. He isn’t a traitor. The deal ended. Some fans are so ungrateful.
