The Capitals game against the Blues wasn’t televised tonight so the only hockey clips we were privy to were from the Caps’ social media. They also did an Instagram story.
The first posting, a video of the Caps coming off the bus, instantly intrigued me.
Dmitry Orlov, wearing a lime green tie with a light blue dress shirt, walks down the steps, finds the camera, then puts both arms into the air like the champion he is. Meanwhile, comrade Evgeny Kuznetsov gives an innocent hello with a wave of his right hand.
The rest of the players paid no mind to the filming Caps employee.
This is just another wonderful example of one of my favorite all-time hockey quotes. “Moar Russians, moar fun,” Orlov once said to me in the locker room. He could not be more right.
Thanks for the heads up @cnnrhurson.
