After going 115 minutes and 43 seconds without scoring a goal, the Washington Capitals scored twice in 32 seconds. The dam had broken. It was weird.

When Brooks Laich scored to tie the game at two, he unleashed the best celebration on the ice and in the stands that Hogwarts has seen these many years.

It’s like we all forgot how to celebrate, and then they taught us how to smile again.

Laich goes wild, does the hambone, then goes full anteater.

Check out Arsenio up front and this dude in the back. They’re having a good time.

I love this girl. Also, guy in the RMNB Wagon shirt: We see you, bro. Well done.

Goals are fun. Winning is nice. What is going on?

    Was in the house tonight. Never seen an arena go from completely dead to electric in a shorter time. A lot of fun.

    Now I wonder what was Kuzya’s reaction when he saw and heard VC reaction. When you sitting on top in tense agonizing games such goals have effect of bomb explosion and you getting feeling that the roof going down. Such emotions are right in Kuzya’s alley!

    Ok, I think I’ve been watching that for like 5 minutes now just laughing hysterically. So, I’m the guy in front of the other two. Yes. Guy in green sweatshirt had quite a buzz going on. He was making fun of the guy in front of him. We know the camera guy and I think he was prompting him to do it. Guy in white had done that the previous two goals I think. We’re never going to let him live this down!

    The guy in the green sweatshirt looks like Nick Offerman’s dirranged cousin

    Rip Taylor’s let himself go.

    Nice goal and it’s Great to see Laich so pumped up. (Probably the second best feeling he’s had recently) But Chimera isn’t getting enough credit for his fantastic job setting this goal up.

  • Christopher R

    Seems like typical Caps fans to me. Only surprising thing is the Beagle jersey behind the green goblin. Is that Dale Hunter?

  • Smiley456

    Is the Verizon Center crowd the largest Kuzya’s played in, or usually played in?

  • It’s def bigger than most KHL arenas. He might’ve played in bigger places for WJC though.

  • Smiley456

    Thanks Peter. So he has to be pretty psyched. Sure hope Caps make some trades for some D, so Kuzya’s skills aren’t wasted.
