Recent Metro rider TJ Oshie has crashed the net to score the first goal of Game Four.
Capitals forward TJ Oshie rode the Metro again for Game Four. But this time he ran into a special problem when he got out at the Gallery Place stop.
According to Twitter user @CDLori, Oshie was 35 cents short on his fare card. Metro staff had to let him through.
Oshie signed an eight-year, $46 million contract over the offseason.
The Washington Capitals are up 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Final and have another opportunity to take a win at home tonight. The Vegas Golden Knights are going to continue trying to find their momentum again, which could happen with their recent lineup changes. As for the Capitals, they’ll be sticking with their usual lineup.
It’s taken a while for all of this to sink in for me, but it’s starting to and I’m becoming a little speechless. Be safe wherever you’re rallying, have a good time, and let’s go Caps.
Puck drop is at 8PM on NBC (probably a bit more toward the 8:15PM mark, but still). After the game, Peter will have your recap.
Ahead of Game Four, the Capitals held their morning skate at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, and there were a few new faces in the stands.
The NHL arranged for some of the top prospects of the upcoming 2018 Draft to attend, including Swedish defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, who is expected to go first overall.
Evan Bouchard, Noah Dobson, Quintin Hughes, Andrei Svechnikov, Brady Tkachuk, and Filip Zadina were the other prospects invited to observe the Capitals morning skate and meet the team afterwards.
The Washington DC area is head-over-heels in love with its hockey team right now, which is why I wanted to show you the following video.
During the morning skate today, the filled-to-capactiy crowd at Kettler Capitals Iceplex was chanting Let’s Go Caps! That’s neat in its own right. It’s just practice.
What’s significant is that this was happening before the team even came out on the ice.
On Sunday, John Walton announced that Capitals Radio would have a special guest joining them in the booth to call the first period of Game Four: Ron Weber. That name should prove nostalgic to some fans, as Weber was the play-by-play announcer for the Washington Capitals from their inaugural game in 1974. He called a total of 1,936 regular season games over 23 years.
