It was a big Friday night for 25-year-old Czech rookie Vitek Vanacek. After years in the Capitals farm system, he finally made his NHL debut against the Buffalo Sabres. He stopped 30 of 31 shots to deliver a win for his team and secure the first W of his NHL career. His teammates sung his praises after the game. He was given a post-game award.
And then, naturally, he got a shaving cream pie to the face.
