Hockey players and their flow go together like oil and vinegar — great until the mixture separates, which is almost exactly what Tom Wilson‘s hair did from his scalp on Tuesday night.

In a brutal fight against the Los Angeles Kings’ Luke Schenn, Willy Baby made sure to get the last punch in while the fans wondered if they had, in fact, seen Tom Wilson’s hair come to life and try to escape his head.

The Montreal Canadiens’ PK Subban just took a selfie during the Skills Competition. I see Patrice Bergeron, Kris Letang, Cory Schneider, Sophia Jurksztowicz playing with her hair, and… hey, wait a second!

We’re going to need to enhance the right-hand corner of the photo.

Wednesday night, the Capitals extended their latest winning streak to nine games and it appears they gave one tiny Caps fan a thrill of a lifetime in the process. During a first period melee which saw Tom Wilson get a double minor for roughing, the Caps and Sabres mucked it up near the glass.

Check out these fantastic photos by Patrick Smith.

Begging for a follow is a hallmark of social media. Capitals forward Brooks Laich already has a big online fanbase (being engaged to a Hollywood superstar has probably helped), but he’s not excepted from those requests.

Tom Wilson and Michael Latta, who have gained notoriety of their own thanks to their off-ice hijinks) took follow-begging one step further by doing so in the comments of Laich’s own Instagram post.

TJ Oshie’s Nickname Is Osh

If you pay close attention to Caps telecasts, you’ll learn something new every night. During Tuesday’s Rangers game, CSN Washington zoomed in on Alex Ovechkin on the bench, drinking Gatorade and staring at things. We also got a front-row seat to the Caps’ stick rack.

And that’s how we learned that TJ Oshie‘s nickname is Osh.

Ah, yes. Just some late-night hockey for the Caps. Thursday night finds the team halfway through their trip through western Canada, a routine road game in Vancouver. Nothing to see here.

Wait. What the deuce.

Computer! Enhance quadrant 72-aught-niner!

Every game, Washington Capitals head coach Barry Trotz jots his notes onto a notecard he keeps in his suit coat. As the Caps and Rangers left the ice for the first intermission on Wednesday, NBCSN showed a close-up shot of Trotz looking all philosophical-like, holding his top secret notes for all the world to see.

Let’s enhance!

Last night, as I wrote about Alex Ovechkin fulfilling the birthday wish of a five-year-old at practice, I noticed something in the bottom left corner of Chuck Gormley’s photo. (My crazy art school eagle eyes see all the pixels.) It was a glove, and that glove had a special inscription.

I fired up the RMNB Enhancing Machine.

Turns out it’s Evgeny Kuznetsov‘s glove and it is stitched with the name KUZY. Take a look.

Capitals forward Brooks Laich had to run an errand in Arlington today. And he had two special helpers for his journey: Julianne Hough’s adorable dogs Harley and Lexi. This photo is notable because it appears the dogs might have helped Brooksie push the pedals and steer the vehicle. And that’s funny because hahaha c’mon, silly, dogs can’t drive cars!

On Thursday in front of a less than capacity crowd at Verizon Center, Jason Chimera took a brutal penalty that led to Nick Foligno‘s game-winning overtime goal. The Caps lost to division foe Columbus. Old news, but I wanted to share the photo above by Rob Carr because it really captures Foligno’s excitement after the… hey – wait a minute!

Is that? It couldn’t be…

Let me fire up my vectoring program on the RMNB super computer. I’m going to need to enhance that upper-right quadrant.
