When Capitals defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk played for the Boston University Terriers, the students had a special chant for the opposing team when Shatty scored a goal.
YOU GOT SHATT ON.
Some other chants/cheers from the time I was there (2008 – 2012).
– When opposing teams lineup is announced, all fans turn around, wave their hands fingers, and yell “SUCKS!” after each player is announced. When the opposing goalie is announced, everyone turns around and yells “SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE.”
– When Eric Gryba (leading PIM leader!) hit somebody, everybody screamed “GRYBA SMASH.”
– Whenever Kevin Shattenkirk scored, there was “YOU GOT SHATT ON.”
– Anytime a jewish player scored, (We had a few!) “Mazel Tov” would be chanted.
– There’s the alcohol trio: with the fans yelling “Lets get drunk!”, the band yelling “Responsibly,” and the fans yelling back “No.”
Recently, Capitals Outsider’s Ben Sumner covered one of the Capitals’ promotional events and overheard Shattenkirk telling a fan that he wished the chant would return.

Some tiny Caps fans even yelled out the phrase last week at Kettler.
Kevin Shattenkirk said “five 10-year-olds” started chanting, “You got Shatt on” as he left the ice. “Hope I’m not getting kids in trouble.”

If Shatty wants the chants back, who are we to say no. So we went ahead and made a sign that you can download and print off the RMNB server. Through the first four games of the series, Shattenkirk has 17 shots on net and no goals. We think he’s due. Get your signs and chant ready.
