Last weekend, Ann’s family traveled to Connecticut for a hockey tournament which her brother Matthew played in. Melissa, Ann’s mom, explained that there’s usually time to kill between games and a need to get away from the rink. So the family went to Target to try and find Halloween costumes.
Ann tried on the Left Shark costume. It was fun, but just wasn’t her.
Halloween is just a few days away, and in the true spirit of the holiday, the Caps arrived at their practice rink at Kettler Capitals Iceplex this morning to a very unusual and spooky sight: Fog on the ice.
When St. Louis Blues fan Meg R. attended the Capitals’ recent game against her hometown Calgary Flames, she hoped to meet up with her favorite former Blues player, TJ Oshie. She got a lot more than that, including some fandom advice from Oshie himself.
For the first time this season, Alex Ovechkin didn’t score in Friday’s monster win over the Edmonton Oilers. Instead he had to settle for two assists — and apparently a puppy. In an Instagram photo shared Saturday evening, Ovechkin and fiancee Nastya Shubskaya posed with their new dog, a flopsy black puppy named Blaik. “Get to know the new member of the family,” Ovechkin writes.
And one more thing: Ovi is dressed like Batman. That’s because the Capitals are having their Halloween Party tonight. Oh yes.
“I didn’t know it was my 900th,” he continued. “It’s a special moment for me.”
Ovechkin posed with his 900th point puck after the game. The two players who assisted on the play– Evgeny Kuznetsov, who won a defensive zone face-off, and Brooks Orpik, who wrapped a pass down the boards to Ovechkin –also were in the picture. Kuznetsov sported a Russian smile while Orpik cheesed big for the camera.
By its absence of parks and its low temperatures, Winnipeg has corrupted our sweet, kind, winsomeMathieu Perreault into something dark and cold. His eyes, which once relayed a love for all things verdant and true, now chill the very marrow in your bones. He’s become indifferent to the joys of life. He seeks neither companionship nor romance. Perreault lives only to smote the ruin of his foes upon the park-less wasteland that is Winnipeg, Manitoba.
“He’s working really hard, really really hard and doing really really well,” his mother Heather told RMNB’s Chris Gordon. Bensten goes to Churchill Road Elementary School in Fairfax County, where he receives individualized teaching to help get him back to where he was before the accident.
