Washington Capitals’ 2014 Draft first-round pick Jakub Vrana kicked off his season this week with two Champions Hockey League games. After getting kept off the scoresheet as his Linkoping defeated Pardubice 2-1, Vrana, who played on a line with ex-Hershey Bears Jeff Taffe and Jacob Micflikier, scored two points in a blowout victory over Italian team Bolzano, 5-0.

That also included one siiiiiiiick goal.

On Saturday, Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov was originally scheduled to be apart of DCPS Beautification Day. Instead, he was in Toronto figure skating.

Yeah, uhhhhh. Let me explain somewhat.

Not everyone loves it when Orioles fans cheer “O!” during the National Anthem at Verizon Center. Such as Nats fans and The Washington Post’s Mike Wise (just search for the words “tainted gene pool”). Also sharing that sentiment are these Cubs fans at Wrigley Field, who first were confused, then outraged by the shouting.

It never ends, and I’m sorta okay with that. Today in #ALSIceBucketChallenge news, Capitals coach Barry Trotz and fashion maven Joe Beninati took the plunge. Monumental Network video’d the whole thing. It’s quite a production.

The promotion so far has raised over $40 million to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Participants who get dumped on donate $10; those who fail to meet the challenge (e.g. me) donate $100.

I mention this because I consider what Joe and Barry did cheating. They dipped into the pool right after they got soaked, which means they were only chilly for like two seconds, tops. That’s not enough. So I think they should pony up another $90. Your thoughts?

Pretty pictures below.

UPDATE 4:45 PM: Caps Media Relations Manager Page Sagester says there was no cheating involved.

We are unable to confirm the report as we have not yet been invited to swim in the Caps’ hot cold tub.

On Wednesday, this photo of Braden, Benjamin, Brandi, and Belle Holtby made the rounds on Tumblr. It’s easy to understand why. This photo is straight out of a fashion magazine. These people look perfect. Even the tiny, grumpy one to the right giving the side-eye to someone.

Someday I will have children, and I have already accepted the fact that they’ll have lumpy heads and cry all the time, just like their father.

Way back in April, Washington Capitals hunky forward Brooks Laich cut a video for TSN, explaining five things every man should know how to do. Well apparently he left one very important thing off that list: how to gut and filet a frigging fish.

Laich, who is vacationing with his girlfriend Julianne Hough whom he totally loves, gave tiny-men-in-training Bronson and Quaid a lesson they’ll never forget.

As one commenter put it on Instagram, that’s “disgustingly adorable, you guys.” Seconded.

So much personality here. Who even is this man? (Photo: @keeperofthecup)

In June, former Washington Capitals defenseman Jeff Schultz became a Stanley Cup champion after his Los Angeles Kings vanquished the New York Rangers in five games. Now, for some of you, that thought still makes you laugh/cry/shudder.
