Late in the first period, play was stopped after Travis Zajac deflected the puck. Just the puck didn’t go out of play or into the crowd. It went up Matt Niskanen’s pants. Really.
No, I don’t understand the physics on how this is possible.
After getting slashed by Zajac in the waist, the Caps defenseman started digging his hand up his right pant leg and unearthed the beautiful rubber disc.
IS THAT A PUCK IN YOUR PANTS OR ARE YOU JUST HAPPY TO SEE ME?!?!?!?

This was almost as great as that time Braden Holtby lost the puck in his gear and it took several minutes for him to find it.
