Someone Threw a Crab on the Ice, Because Baltimore

Right after Casey Wellman scored a humdinger of a goal off some anonymous Bruin’s puffybum during Tuesday’s Baltimore Hockey Classic, a fan threw a crab on the ice. It’s the octopus thing in Detroit… crustacean version!

Yeah, Baltimore’s never gonna get a pro hockey team.

The Capitals went on to lose in the shootout. All three preseason games have gone to the gimmick, which is just upsetting. Also upsetting: conditions at Baltimore Arena, which Alex Ovechkin called “kind of dangerous” and “kind of scary” when speaking to Sky Kerstein of 106.7 The Fan.



UPDATE: Master assassin Wes Johnson shared a photo of the crab in question. Old Bay for the win.

    So, a steamed crab, not a live one?

    The guy who threw it was sitting right in front of me. He and his buddy spent the whole first period discussing the throwing technique to use.

    How good did Walker look last night? The loss or the fact that the preseason games have all gone to the gimmick hasn’t bothered me in the slightest. What bothered me last night was the sheer number of times that we were on the PK, and that one missed call re: the hit on Wilson’s breakaway. I don’t disagree w/ the penalty to Volpatti, but the non-call for the hit on Wilson? Inexcusable.

    With the exception of the obvious skating hazard posed by random shell fragments, I kind of like it…
    I therefore propose–instead of (or perhaps in addition to) free wings–that when the Capitals score 5 or more goals in a game at VC, a Tea Party Congressman or Corporate Lobbyist be thrown onto the ice.
    …from the 400’s section.
