Crazy Shia LaBeouf was also in DC for the premier, and boy do I wish I was at a bar that he showed up at. Fury is a movie about tanks or something. Alex Ovechkin is a player about hockey.

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:

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!
