Pretty much every time the Caps face off against a team with Russians, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov hold court with their countrymen in the hallway just off the visitor’s bench.
Tonight was special, however. Not only was Ovechkin walking around shirtless and in a towel, but this particular confab included former Capital Semyon Varlamov, an old fan favorite and current frenemy of the Washington faithful. In his second time back at Verizon Center since being traded in the summer of 2011, Varly turned aside 36 saves Colorado’s 2-1 loss.
