Guys. I know it’s cool and all that last night the Caps set a new franchise record by beating the Yotes and that Ovi became the third player ever in NHL history to score 30 goals in each of his first twelve seasons, but something far more important happened.
There was a dog on the ice at Verizon Center.
Late Late Show host James Corden has become must-watch TV most nights on CBS. During a bit early Thursday morning, Corden read off a question from a viewer in Maryland.
And that’s when the English comedian realized the state’s name was a bit harder to pronounce than he originally thought.
We’ve all known for years that Nicklas Backstrom is one of the best of the best. Still, it’s always nice when others recognize it too.
WinnersView did just that when they released a video explaining how Backstrom leads all players in the NHL in power play assists (per 60) since the 2012-2013 season. That’s four seasons of consistently kicking butt.
In the video, WinnersView analyzes exactly how Backstrom has been so productive for the Caps when up a man.
Over the years, seemingly every Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens rivalry game is intense. Things were no different Sunday night in Boston, when Andrew Shaw settled a past score with Torey Krug.
The resulting fight was so fierce, even Referee Wes McCauley got amped when announcing the penalties.
Despite a lackluster season so far, the Detroit Red Wings are still finding ways to make the world a better place. Detroit native and Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser took some time on Tuesday to surprise his biggest (and smallest) fan for her birthday on Wednesday.
Warning: this footage is really, really cute.
On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons blew a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots in the game’s second half. This crushing playoff loss prompted many on Twitter to label Atlanta as the NFL’s version of the Washington Capitals.
Warriors 🏀, Indians⚾ and Falcons🏈 all blew it. Who’s gonna be the NHL team?

But since 2010, the Capitals have twice blown a 3-1 series lead. They were upset in the first round by the Montreal Canadiens after winning the President’s Trophy during the 2009-10 season. The Caps were eliminated in the second round by the eventual Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins after owning the league’s best regular season record last year.
We all have our ways of preparing for the annual playoff heartbreak. Here’s mine.
