EDM artist Kygo performed two huge shows at The Anthem on Monday and Tuesday. Kygo’s second show had a bit of a Caps flavor.
The night after the Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins and advanced to the third round for the first time in two decades, Kygo held up a custom-stitched number 91 Caps jersey to the crowd.

Several Caps fans in attendance freaked out by the gesture, posting photos and video on Twitter.
