“I had an extremely awful day but it’s completely rectified by this video,” @icefeathxr commented. Same here.
This is the most random and wonder noise I’ve heard from a Caps player since Alex Ovechkin emitted this sound at a camera in April 2015.
Meanwhile, Pheonix Copley was all good in net, stopping every shot he faced for a 42-save shutout.
