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.

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.
Monday morning, the Washington Capitals released the cover of their new dog calendar and it looks great. Featuring a collage of Caps with cute dog…hey, wait a second.
Yeah, I’m going to need to zoom into the lower right quadrant here.

There was one photo I didn’t share from Amanda’s gallery on Monday.
It’s this image of Troy Brouwer, Andre Burakovsky, and Marcus Johansson celebrating their goal during Sunday’s final preseason game of the season. Burakovsky’s geeking out, Brouwer’s giving kudos for that sick pass, and Mojo is just of there. It’s pretty tame– except wait.
After the Washington Capitals defeated the Buffalo Sabres 1-0 in their preseason opener on Sunday, the game’s only scorer, Andre Burakovsky, spoke to CSN Washington’s Al Koken. Burakovsky said stuff but who cares; look at that baby in the corner.
Over the weekend, Washington Capitals forward Marcus Johansson completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in his native Sweden. It was a no-frills affair… hey, wait a minute.
