Tuesday night, Leonsis got a picture with Mike Green after the Caps’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Red Wings. Leonsis included a kind message with the photo.

The Capitals arrived in Montreal last night ahead of their game tonight against the Canadians. So what did the Caps Russians do? I’m glad you asked.

Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, and Stan Galiev had dinner with former Capital/forever-Habs-scratch Alex Semin. We know this because Ristorante Bis owner Marcello Abate published a photo of the group together on Twitter.

After their 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday, the Capitals overtook the New York Rangers for first place in the Metro. CSN, having basketball on its mind and the Caps on CSN Plus, screwed up their chart.

(Also, why are the Rangers highlighted in yellow?)

Happy Thanksgiving! Last night, Caps fans were thankful for their team, who beat the Jets 5-3. Returning to the Verizon Center ice for the first time as a Winnipeg Jet, Mathieu Perreault sported a Mo/Mullet combo in support of Movember at warmups. He is still a ray of sunshine, even if his latest team photo says otherwise. He even got a puck over the glass to some Caps fans eager to see him in his return to D.C.

Before you gorge on all the delicious food, enjoy some victory smiles from your Caps.

We all know hockey is serious business. But sometimes after a tough skate, you need to have a little fun, especially if it’s with your family. After practice at Kettler, Jay Beagle stayed behind with his young son Brandt to do a little skating and to help Baby Beags practice his hockey moves.

Brandt was wearing a very special pair of ice skates for his second ever time hitting the ice: They were also worn by Jay and Grandpa Beagle when they were kids!

Something amazing happened Monday after the Capitals morning skate, and you need to see it right this very minute. Alex Ovechkin walked out of Kettler Capitals Iceplex cradling a giant bobblehead of Alex Ovechkin.

It’s like when Eli Manning held that tiny bucket except twice as disturbing and ten times more confusing.

Reader Sydney S. tells me that Human Ovi put Bobble Ovi safely in the passenger seat of the Ovimobile and then drove away.

Oh? You want more pictures? Here are some more pictures.

On Sunday Washington Capitals star TJ Oshie was granted a maintenance day by head coach Barry Trotz. Oshie missed practice, but he hit the ice anyway. That afternoon, Oshie drove up to the greatest city in all the land, Frederick, Maryland, to skate with some teeny tiny youth hockey players.

I’ll let Daniel Lerman, who snapped photos and had his son participate in the event, explain.
