The Washington Capitals’ all-time outdoor scoring leader, Eric Fehr.
Let me start with this: Welcome to 2015, RMNB. I hope it’s a safe and happy one for you, and I hope you eat delicious food. That’s important.
In a few hours, or– if it’s sunny, a few hours after that– the Washington Capitals and Chicago Blackhawks will drop the puck at Nationals Park in DC for the Winter Classic. There’s gonna be pageantry, patriotism, and marked-up merchandise. There’s also going to be hockey. Let’s talk about that last part.
The game starts 1 PM on NBC, unless it starts later, which we don’t know yet.

Here’s how they looked at practice yesterday, according to Alex Prewitt:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Beagle
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich– Fehr – Ward
Chimera – Latta – Wilson
Schmidt – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Hillen – Green
The 2011 Winter Classic was a big deal for Caps fans. It came at a time when the team needed some happiness (that December was brutal). The Caps of 2015 are a world away from that team in a number of ways, but maybe we can see them recapture some of that same magic today. At the very least, let’s make some new memories as wonderful as the one above.
Crash the net. Happy new year.
