On Thursday night, the Washington Capitals stopped history in its tracks when they ended the Columbus Blue Jackets 16-game streak with a 5-0 victory.
While the win was certainly exciting, Nate Schmidt was the most entertaining part of the night. Schmidt scored his first goal in 67 games to extend the Caps lead to 3-0. He also sung and danced to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It off” in a video shown during the second period.
Earlier in the day, we reported that Taylor Swift mentioned the Washington Capitals during her show on Saturday night at the Verizon Center. (She did so again Sunday too.) Hard-hitting stuff, right? Well now we have video.

File under things I didn’t expect to write about: during Taylor Swift‘s Red Tour 2013 show last night at Verizon Center (that did not create any Yanni-esque scheduling trouble trouble trouble), the 23-year-old pop singer gave the Washington Capitals a little shout out.
According to @Mic_Nas89, Swift said, “You ask yourself why is there so much red? Well one reason is because the Capitals are in the playoffs.”
And then she sang this.
