Peanut butter and jelly. Hot cocoa and marshmallows. Ice cream and sprinkles. These are all things that come better together as a pair.
But perhaps the greatest example is Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals’ longtime one-two punch on offense.
The Caps have immortalized the pair on salt & pepper shakers for a special giveaway on their Capsgiving game against the Philadelphia Flyers on November 23. Fans who buy special tickets through this promotional link will be able to get the unique salt & pepper shakers.
The design features a beardy, gap-toothed Ovechkin in a Capitals red home jersey while a clean-shave Backstrom rocks the Capitals’ navy blue alternates.
