Nick Jensen’s strange weekend continues. Friday, the Capitals defenseman participated in one of the weirdest fights of the year with Devils forward Miles Wood.
Saturday against the Lightning, Jensen had an even stranger moment. The American defenseman jumped on the ice for a second-period shift and had the equivalent of toilet paper stuck to his shoe except the toilet paper was a towel and the shoe was his right skate.

“Jensen… has a towel stuck to his skate,” NBC Sports Washington’s Joe Beninati said bewildered. “You don’t see that every day.”
“No (you don’t),” Craig Laughlin responded. “Jumped over the boards and got caught in the back of his skate. He wiped out, realized it wasn’t his blade but a towel and was able to recover.”

Jensen later took an interference penalty in the third period which combined with a Lars Eller delay-of-game penalty to give the Lightning an elongated five-on-three powerplay.
This weekend of hockey can’t end soon enough for Nick.
