The Washington Capitals were leading the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 on Saturday night. They ended up winning 6-5 despite a pathetic third period collapse. Afterwards, the players were understandably upset, none moreso than Jason Chimera.
In response to an earnest question about how to mentally handle a late game blow up, Chimera got sassy.
“Sometimes you’re not your best at writing articles,” he said. “You gotta do better next game.”
After a quick back-and-forth, Chimera stormed off to the showers at Verizon Center. Ah, the joys of a winning locker room.
