So much happened Tuesday night during the Caps/Sharks game that it was impossible to cover it all. Liam O’Brien tallied his first NHL point, the Caps came back like two different times from an impossible deficit, and terrible hockey player John Scott summoned the power of Thor to lower the boom and score his first goal since dinosaurs roamed the earth.
There was another play I loved that I didn’t get to cover. DID YOU SEE THAT ‘AND ONE’ MOVE OVI PUT ON LOGAN COUTURE??? OMGGGGGG.

Since Alex Ovechkin has opted out of the All-Star Weekend (and has better things to do anyway), Dennis Wideman is now Washington’s lone representative in Ottawa. While Wideman is perhaps slightly less likely to don a hat and sunglasses and do trick shots, he’s a Capital, so we love him all the same. We’ll be covering Wideman’s foray into the glamorous life of an All-Star, so check back for updates, because let’s face it, you’re already bored without hockey.
Dennis Wideman was picked in the 15th round with the second-to-last pick that could be used on a defenseman, before only Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler. This means that we can get hipster now if we want and call him underrated. We knew Dennis Wideman when he wasn’t cool. Logan Couture was picked last overall and won a brand new caaaaarrrrr! Somehow it just wasn’t the same without Ovechkin there laughing and taking pictures.
