Where were you when the Washington Capitals defeated the New York Islanders 11 minutes into overtime?
Some of us were at home. Some were at Verizon Center. Some of us were being pelted in the side of the head by beer at Nasseau Coliseum. Some were preparing for postgame coverage.
The Caps and their fans were scattered but united in celebration. Follow me around the world.
First, let’s see how our boys celebrated on the Islanders’ home rink. First off: The Big Cheese, Joel Ward.
How about Caps captain Alex Ovechkin? Yup, that selfish Russian is still celebrating other peoples’ goals as if they’re his own.
Here’s the Caps going into the locker room.
Caps win! #CapsIsles tied at 2-2!

CSN Washington’s Alan May yelled “YES” before calmly buttoning his suit coat for Caps Post-Game Live.
Brent Johnson pumped his fist before giving the rest of his team pounds.
Remember those New York-based Caps fans who got harassed during game three and got their car keyed? Here’s a few them celebrating at a bar in East Village, New York City. They deserved this.
On Monday, we posted video of Sean’s disappointed family after the Caps lost 15 seconds into overtime. Tuesday, they setup their camera again and got a much different reaction.

Finally, a bunch of Caps fans watched the game live on the jumbotron at Verizon Center.
