The Washington Capitals had the day off to frolic in California after defeating the San Jose Sharks 5-1, Thursday night.
That freedom produced one of the best selfies of the 2018-19 season.
TJ Oshie posted a photo of himself, John Carlson, Andre Burakovsky, Tom Wilson, and Nicklas Backstrom riding a helicopter.
“GET TO THE CHOPPA!!!” Oshie wrote in all caps. He appears to be the co-pilot.
Oshie and one of his Swedish passengers, Burakovsky, documented the ride on their Instagram Stories. The result was some amazing views and some fun interactions between the players.

Burakovsky provided more information about the impromptu ride on his Instagram page. “[I] had a blast with the boys today. Golf and a little helicopter ride back to Orange County.”
The Capitals spent their day at the Genesis Open, a PGA Event at the Riviera Golf Course. The players freaked watching Tiger Woods golf.
Oshie and Carlson even posed for a photo together as they sat and watched the action.
Glad to see you had a great day, boys!
