Friday night, Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green went to the Katy Perry concert with his wife, Courtney. The pop star is playing at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary tonight, Green’s hometown. Now some of you out there might think, oh man, that is not an event I would want people to know I’m going to. Instead, Green let a friend take a photo of him and his wife before the show and oh my god do you see what he’s wearing this IS AMAZING.

On Saturday, Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov was originally scheduled to be apart of DCPS Beautification Day. Instead, he was in Toronto figure skating.

Yeah, uhhhhh. Let me explain somewhat.

Mind Blown: A Beagle in a Jay Beagle Jersey

One week ago, Jay Beagle played his best ever game as a pro — a two-goal outing against the Chicago Blackhawks. On our Facebook page, which you should follow if you do not already, reader Crystal N. posted a photo on our game recap post. The photo got 23 likes.

Because it was a Beagle in a Jay Beagle jersey.

The Florida Panthers had erased two two-goal leads on Monday night, but the Capitals had a chance to finish them off late in the third.

Exiting the penalty box, Mike Green was set on a one-on-zero breakaway. As he neared the paint, Florida goalie Tim Thomas fell– opening up the net for a layup game-winner with deadly casualness.

A few weeks ago, we were treated to video of Hershey Bears’ enforcer Joel Rechlicz meeting his bobblefist. If you haven’t watched that video, please click it now because it’s a laugh riot.

That brings us to today. Inova Blood Donor Services has their annual Winter Blood Drive this Saturday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Because Inova is awesome, they are giving away free swag. That swag is a Jay Beagle bobblehead and t-shirt.

No, the Jay Beagle bobblehead does not look like this.

Self-dentistry FTW!

Friday night, the Washington Capitals lost to the Florida Panthers. It was the second meeting between the two teams this season, with the Capitals winning the other match-up 3-2 (SO) in early November at Verizon Center.

During the third period of Friday’s game, as Panthers forward Krys Barch dumped the puck into the Capitals zone, CSN’s Craig Laughlin had a question for play-by-play man Joe Beninati.

Didn’t Barch pull out his tooth in the first meeting… in the penalty box?” Laughlin asked.

“Yeah, I was never sure if he did that for real or if it was all a big joke,” Beninati responded with a laugh.

And you thought Wednesday was great.

Tell me if you’ve heard this before. In the final minute of the Washington Capitals game against the Philadelphia Flyers, Alex Ovechkin tied the game with less than a minute to go, sending the Verizon Center into a frenzy.

The Capitals, down 4-1 to the Flyers in the third period, scored three unanswered goals in the game’s final 8:40 to push the game to overtime. The Caps eventually won in the shootout.

Washington Capitals prospect Riley Barber has the distinct honor of representing the United States of America at this year’s World Junior Championships. One would think that in the days leading up to Barber’s trip to Malmö, Sweden, the young winger would be hitting up the mall to stock up on suits and dress shirts. You know, showing the event the respect and decorum it deserves.

Nope.

brouwer-reaction-on-goal

Wut.

Washington Capitals winger Troy Brouwer has struggled this season. Maybe struggled is an understatement. He hadn’t scored a goal in 11 games, since early November, and his line has played so poorly that Peter called it the Black Hole Line.

Maybe breaking up with Brooks Laich meeting fans at Tyson’s Corner a few days ago did something to perk Brouwer up. He looked like a completely different player in the first period of tonight’s game against the Nashville Predators. He put up three shots and ended his 11-game goalless streak. After the goal he looked very, very confused.

Beautiful, right?

Now that all the big-name hockey media sources have joined us in reporting that Mikhail Grabovski will sign a one-year with the Washington Capitals, it’s time for a reckoning.

And by that I mean I photoshopped Grabo into a #84 Caps jersey so you can stare at it and air-punch and weep with joy while all the while laughing at a million bereaved Maple Leafs fans.
