Capitals head coach Barry Trotz gave his players the day off on Friday after they defeated Minnesota Wild 4-3 the previous night. Through 53 games, the Capitals have the most wins (40) in NHL history. I guess they earned it.

Tom Wilson, Michael Latta, Andre Burakovsky, and Nate Schmidt decided to spend their free day in Dallas doing the most hockey player thing imaginable: playing golf. The four amigos traveled to the fancy Top Golf facility, which features a driving range (that has TVs in every stall), batting cages, and a 64-hole miniature golf course.

Tom Wilson joined the Minnesota Wild tonight in the second period when he was checked into their bench.

It was a good laugh, and sure to be seen on future YouTube compilations of hockey fails for years to come.

Andre Burakovsky Receiving a Latta Love For His 21st Birthday

The youngest Caps player is not so young anymore. Andre Burakovsky turns 21 today, and even though he still has to wait another four years to rent a car, he can now drink legally in the States, which is really all that matters to a 21-year-old guy, right?

But wait! Isn’t Burkie Swedish? Didn’t he celebrate his most important birthday three years ago when he could legally purchase alcohol in Sweden? Is this basically his 18th birthday all over again? Why, yes, it is. He’s even retained the look of an 18 year old just for the authenticity of it all.

After the Caps’ 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, long-time RMNB reader Abbi F. shared with us a fun story from the game. Sunday was her 16th birthday so she decided to make a sign in the hopes she might get a puck. And to the surprise of no one, Tom Wilson came through in the clutch (even though he was forced to try multiple times).

Upon returning to DC from the All-Star break on Monday, Andre Burakovsky and Michael Latta posted photos from their dream vacation in the Bahamas. Both pictures involved posing with a dolphin, so naturally fellow brobean Tom Wilson was grilled by the Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan on if he also took a picture with a dolphin or not.

Well, you guys, Wilson did and above is the photo he took.

Ed. note: Please say hello to Victoria Dravis, RMNB’s latest acquisition.

Hockey players: They’re just like us! (And by us, I mean me and the thousands of other teenage girls hooked on the best game on Earth; no bias.)

Speaking of game, just look at Tom Wilson and Andre Burakovsky‘s Snapchat and Instagram game on the two whitest social networks above. So on point. #nofilter

This is How Much the Islanders Hate Tom Wilson

Tom Wilson wrecked Long Island last spring, and they haven’t forgotten it. Defenseman Thomas Hickey walloped Wilson with a pair of dirty hits in the first period of tonight’s game.

Everyone’s favorite Caps roommates, Tom Wilson and Michael Latta, and former roommate and forever brobean Andre Burakovsky, are spending the All-Star break soaking up the sun in the Bahamas.

By the looks of this photo Wilson posted on Instagram today, they’re enjoying some (virgin, no doubt) piña coladas, ab crunches and getting behind on their chest shaving schedules. Wilson captioned the post, “Good vibes good friends ☀️ #bahamatings

What Caps Players Did During the DC Blizzard

Over the last two days, the DC Blizzard dropped two feet of snow in the district and three feet in surrounding areas. The snow forced the cancellation of both Caps’ home games this weekend including tilts against the Ducks and Penguins. That leaves the Caps in a really weird stretch, where they’ll only play one game in 14 days.

Without hockey, the players spent time with their families and messing around on social media. I went ahead and documented it all.

Here is Wilson punching Foligno in the face.

The Capitals got tattooed by the Sabres tonight 4-1. I want to point out to you the strangest part of the evening: a bout between Marcus Foligno and Tom Wilson.

Tom Wilson punched Foligno eight consecutive times in the face with a left jab. Foligno, desperate to end the fight, wrestled Wilson to the ice. Foligno then celebrated as if he won while he skated to the penalty box.
