I’m not sure when Washington Capitals players became all about video bombing each other during interviews, but I’m grateful. In fact, we’ve seen so many funny faces during interviews this season, you have to assume the players are keeping a leader board inside the locker room and whoever has the most at the end of the year gets a paid vacation to Vancouver to perfect the art with Ryan Kesler.
On Friday, the most polite dude on the team even got in the action.
As Jason Chimera spoke to Monumental Network’s Mike Vogel after the morning skate Friday, Nicklas Backstrom entered stage left and put his face as close as possible to Chimera’s grill.
For about five seconds, there was an amazing awkwardness. After Backstrom nods, Chimera finally realizes he’s there and flashes a big smile.

The Caps might only have accumulated two out of a possible eight points over their last four games, but you can’t say their bad play recently is due to a lack of team camaraderie!
