In amazing Caps-related holiday news, Russians Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Dmitry Orlov have decided to dress up as The Three Musketeers for Halloween. I’m sure this is because they’ve all been inspired by the brilliant Alexandre Dumas novel and not because this was the easiest trio-themed costume they could find at their local Party City.
This screengrab looks like it could be an action shot on a hockey card.
Washington Capitals rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov has had an uneven season thus far. He’s spent most of his time on the team’s fourth line, learning the center position as he goes. He’s also seen a bunch of time on the team’s second power play unit.
On Wednesday, after tallying three points in his first eight games, Kuznetsov finally broke through for his first goal of the season.
It was a beauty. And it was all because of Braden Holtby.
RMNB reader Angela M. (who is from our hometown of Frederick, Maryland) is doing something great. As part of her bucket list, she’s seeing a Washington Capitals game in every NHL arena. Tonight, she will be taking in a game from Calgary’s Saddledome, the 22nd venue in which she’s seen the Caps play.
Angela got a special treat before puck drop too. As she was making her way to the Saddledome, she ran into Caps rookies Andre Burakovsky and Evgeny Kuznetsov. Sadly, Kuznetsov was not in his cowboy gear. Angela asked them for a picture, saying “it’s for RMNB.” They laughed and obliged.

Washington Capitals head coach Barry Trotz might have given his players the day off Thursday, but everyone ended up on the ice anyways. The Caps held what I can only describe as an “intense team building event” at the Calgary Curling Club and I’m sad to report there was one casualty: Alex Ovechkin‘s pants. Let us have a moment of silence for #OviPants.
On Friday, the Washington Capitals held a photoshoot for their annual dog calendar, benefitting Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. While we posted everything that was put up on social media that day by the Caps, we didn’t tell you that our very own Amanda Bowen went to the event and got her own photos.
The movie, which takes place in Europe during the final month of World War II, is about a five-man crew that must try to accomplish a deadly mission in the heart of Nazi Germany. It stars Pitt, Shia LaBeouf (ew), Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Peña, Jason Isaacs, and Scott Eastwood.
Many famous war celebrities were scheduled to attend such as retired four-star general Colin Powell, former Army Chief of Staff George Casey, and three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovech… Wait, what?

Who are these people?
This Washington Capitals team features two prominent foreign rookies: Swede Andre Burakovsky and Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov. You’d think these names are not that hard to pronounce, but I guess not. Television people butchered them last week.
Our first offender is ABC 7’s Tim Brant, who is a cool dude, but must now get a timeout.
