The Capitals are giving out Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do headbands to the offensive and defensive players of the game this season
Peter Laviolette had a bunch of free time in 2020. Canned by the Nashville Predators early in the year and then forced into quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, Laviolette binge-watched TV to pass the time. One of the shows that he particularly enjoyed was Netflix’s Cobra Kai – a sequel series to The Karate Kid films.
Laviolette loved the show so much that he let it inspire the Capitals’ new ridiculous postgame awards. Plural. I’ll let coach explain.
