Wednesday night, the Washington Capitals hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Verizon Center. That meant that All-Time NHL Outdoor Goal leader Eric Fehr returned home.
It was not so glorious. Fehr was unable to suit up due to offseason elbow surgery, though he is expected to return as early as this weekend.
In the first period, the Caps Game Entertainment crew cued up a a tribute video for Fehr. The former Capital got a loud applause from the crowd as he waved from the media area.
