NBC Sports Washington’s Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin celebrated their 25th year as a play-by-play duo on Saturday.
The Capitals presented Beninati and Laughlin with customized no. 25 jerseys. They also took time to air a tribute video for the two popular broadcasters during the game. It earned arguably the loudest cheer from the crowd on the night.

The video garnered a standing ovation from the crowd. Capitals players also rose to their feet and gave Joe B and Locker stick taps on the bench.
Here’s another look at the video from Courtney Laughlin.
Thank you #ALLCAPS nation for allowing my dad @Laughlin18 and @JoeBpXp in your living room every caps game night, and for honoring them tonight! I hope they have given you as much joy as you have given them over the last 25 years. You all rock! @Capitals pic.twitter.com/mF4ZAiRiQ1
