After missing the playoffs for the first time in seven years, most Caps players were resigned when they spoke to the media after the game. However, the team’s annual Jerseys Off Our Backs ceremony added a little levity to an otherwise despondent day.
In particular, one member of the Capitals staff was skating around the ice wearing Google Glass, presumably filming the proceedings on them. Karl Alzner, though, wanted a try. As other players were giving away their sweaty garb, Karl tried on the gizmo wiz-bang for himself.
We’ll add the video to this post when it’s published, but for now take a look at some of my photos.

On Saturday night, the Washington Capitals continued their insufferable promotional push for their upcoming Skybox app on Google Glass by giving a pair of glasses to Craig Laughlin and Caps superfan William “Goat” Stillwell.
While Locker donned the glasses during the telecast, Goat put them on from his seats in the lower bowl and took a video from his own eyeballs during a cheer. Some fortuitous timing there, as something amazing happened while he was recording. You’re just going to have to click play and see for yourself.
