California based rapper, Lil B, has a reputation for cursing and blessing various sports teams around the globe. He earned this reputation by first putting a curse on Maryland native Kevin Durant in 2011, who did not win an NBA Championship until the curse was rescinded when Durant joined Lil B’s favored Golden State Warriors.
Before the Caps and Penguins met in Game Six, Twitter user Travis Tuthill (@tuthill_travis) tweeted both Lil B and UMBC Athletics (famous for becoming the first #16 seed in the NCAA tournament to dethrone a #1 seed) asking for the Capitals to be blessed.
Both accounts agreed to the blessing.

The Capitals went on beat the Penguins 2-1 in overtime, advancing to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time in 20 years and the first time in the Alex Ovechkin Era.
Earlier in the postseason, former Capitals player Joel Ward also reached out to Lil B for some help.

That blessing didn’t turn out as successful as the Caps one did.
Now Lil B play us out (Warning: this song is not safe for work or really anywhere else).
