Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin may not have had his best game on Sunday, but one super fan managed to get the Great 8 into the highlight reel anyway. During a stoppage in play, a man with a giant “8” shaped and colored into his epic beard saluted the Colorado crowd and the CSN cameras. One of our readers, @pthompsonktown, tells us he’s a DC transplant who now lives out in Denver.

This moment in facial hair history is definitely not brought to you by Gillette.
