The Washington Capitals were recently featured in a video of Formula 1 drivers trying to guess US sports teams prior to the inaugural Miami GP this weekend. In the video, Valterri Bottas and Kevin Magnusson were the only two drivers who could connect Washington with the clue “Capitals.”
Finnish driver Bottas, we discovered, loves hockey and is a 10 percent owner of his local Liiga team, the Lahti Pelicans. However, it took a Twitter reply for us to discover why Magnusson knew.
Magnusson is Danish and was at Lars Eller’s Stanley Cup party in 2018.
