Erat Scores First Goal, Caps Fans Wave Goodbye To Forsberg

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Martin Erat was traded for Filip Forsberg, one of the Caps top prospects, just a few weeks ago.  The move brought with it a lot of negative fan reaction towards the trade and towards the Caps general manager George McPhee.

But on Tuesday night when an Alex Ovechkin's shot/pass hit Martin Erat perfectly on the stick for the easy tap in goal, Erat earned his first point as a Washington Capital and the trade was immediately vindicated.  At least, that's what a lot of people think (sarcastic or not)...check out the fan reaction on Twitter.

Here are several tweets from right after the Erat goal:

Love the Internet!
