Lots of familiarity in today’s Caps-Pens game. Sprong and Schultz used to play for the Penguins. Crosby and Ovi know each other very well. And behind the Penguins bench is ex-Caps coach Tod, seen above breaking mask protocol.
Reirden did not stay unemployed long. In September, the Penguins asked him back as an assistant coach, and that’s why we see him pulling his mask off to instruct his players (usually the defense) during a stoppage in play in the first period.

Despite Washington being seemingly alseep so far, the Caps lead 2-1 after an Ovi goal.
Meanwhile, I don’t need to lecture anyone here about masks. And besides, Oshie already did.
