Here's a picture of Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov handing Brad Pitt a customized Washington Capitals PITT jersey at a movie premier for Fury at the Newseum on Wednesday. Hmm...Pitt sounds kind of like the start of...Pittsburgh...Via Kuzy & Ovi's Insta:
Caps rookie center Liam O'Brien has only played 3 NHL games but he's already starting to get some notice from fans. O'Brien got into a fight in his first career NHL game (and the Caps opening game of the season) and during Tuesday's shootout loss to the Sharks had a rather interesting game in the 6 minutes he was on the ice.
Check out these two GIFs including a very funny tongue sticking out move:
Braden Holtby had a pretty awesome 29 save shutout against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night that included some nifty stops as well as some interesting pre-game drills. Here is how Holtby was warming up for his shutout, and a little nifty between the legs pass during the game. Gifs follow:
Life is good for Ovi. The Caps star scored 2 goals in the first period against the Boston Bruins on Saturday. Later, the camera cut to Ovechkin as he waited to hit the ice again for his next shift. Ovi was getting a neck/shoulder massage from the trainer. Livin it up!
Caps new coach Barry Trotz was on the Junkies this morning talking hockey and said something quite odd. After the Junks asked him a question about driving (I think), the coach let the radio hosts know that he didn't have a car. Trotz said something along the lines of, "why do you need a car when you can walk".
In case you were wondering, the brisk walk from Kettler to Verizon is just a 6 mile, 2 hour trek.
