Saturday was Military Appreciation Night at Jobing.com Arena. A military member sang the national anthem. Midway through the first period, the ‘Yotes game entertainment staff honored another for her service on the jumbotron. Lt. Garcia got a loud standing ovation and then something unexpected happened. Her boyfriend, standing by her, popped the question.

He went down to one knee and asked, “Will you marry me?” She was — as @DaveZorn72 tells me, “stunned.”

What her response was next is up for some debate because the Coyotes cut away during her answer.

So it appears she said yes. Probably. I think.

And then Caps captain Alex Ovechkin, watching from the bench, gave the (hopefully) happy couple a stick tap.

Cool moment. Maybe?

    Poor guy probably planned it before Trash 1 and Trash 2 did it at a Cardinals(I think, was baseball though) game.

    If we were able to find out who squirted water on Brouwer then we can find out what her answer is!


    I don’t think she said anything.. I watched the thing on the Jumbo-Tron and he never gave he the ring and they seemed very awkward after..
