On Wednesday night, the movie premiere of Fury, Brad Pitt‘s latest film, was held at the Newseum in Washington D.C. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is the first time Sony has held a world premier in the nation’s capital.

The movie, which takes place in Europe during the final month of World War II, is about a five-man crew that must try to accomplish a deadly mission in the heart of Nazi Germany. It stars Pitt, Shia LaBeouf (ew), Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Peña, Jason Isaacs, and Scott Eastwood.

Many famous war celebrities were scheduled to attend such as retired four-star general Colin Powell, former Army Chief of Staff George Casey, and three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovech… Wait, what?

When the Washington Capitals walked into the locker room for the first intermission, they trailed the San Jose Sharks 3-0. Seven short minutes into the second period, the Capitals had scored three of the next four goals, pulling within one.

Two quick goals from Mike Green and Alex Ovechkin 34 seconds apart, helped make that all possible.

San Jose Sharks enforcer John Scott is probably one of the worst hockey players in the league. The 6’8″ left wing plays in the NHL only because of the traits he shares with a grizzly bear, except on the ice. Remember that one time Phil Kessel wielded his stick like a three musketeer? It was because Scott — who was playing for the Sabres at the time — was trying to send the Maple Leafs a message by trying to fight their best player.

San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan gave that his first sweater of the season on Tuesday. And he scored. On Brooks Orpik. Easily.

I’m a sucker for these kinds of things, so apologies ahead of time.

Before the first intermission of the Capitals Bruins game, CSN Washington showed a montage of highlights from the first period and warm-ups. The first clip was the best.

When TV cameras catch the Caps bench, you never know what you’re going to get. Remember that one time a few years back, when Alex Semin contemplated oblivion? Or that time Alex Ovechkin’s hair tried to escape his scalp?

On Saturday, CSN Washington showed a slo-mo replay of Ovechkin getting clipped by Chris Kelly. Before that, they cut to Ovi on the bench, summoning trainer Greg Smith.

On Thursday night, the Washington Capitals opened the regular season with a shootout loss, falling to the Montreal Canadiens 2-1. RMNB’s Amanda Bowen caught a bunch from opening night, including the Brouwer Rangers’ new sign, Liam O’Brien’s fight, and the ceremonial face-off, which included Rod Langway, Peter, Bondra, Sylvain Cote, and Craig Laughlin.

The Hershey Bears lost their season opener to the Norfolk Admirals, but a goal by Steve Oleksy gave the hometown fans something to cheer about.

Oleksy, having narrowly missed a roster spot with the big club, will spend the season in the AHL unless he gets called up. Plays like this are exactly what Oleksy needs to stay on Washington’s radar.

A very curious photo has popped up on the Capitals Instragram, and I’m still confused. It’s Brooks Laich in a top hat and fake beard, looking all like Abraham Lincoln. I had no idea what this meant until I read the caption.

No, Laich is not giving us an early glimpse of his Halloween costume. Nor is this a new look encouraged by Julianne Hough. Actually, Laich was voted the “Honest Abe Players’ Player of the Game” tonight, so– as punishment, I guess– he has to wear this.
