The Washington Capitals won 11 games in the month of December, which was one more victory than they had in October and November combined (10). The good times in DC have been rolling of late and that in turn spurred on one of the most ridiculous chants in Capitals’ history on Friday night.
The Caps defeated the Montreal Canadiens 9-2 as Alex Ovechkin registered his 30th career hat trick. Ovechkin’s third goal was the Caps’ ninth of the evening and Capitals fans, who have been very spoiled lately, wanted MOAR.
So a thundering “We Want 10” chant filled Capital One Arena with 3:25 remaining in the third period, encouraging their favorite team to try and score one more goal.
For Hockey Hall of Famer and second-year head coach of the Habs, Martin St. Louis, this was one of the most dreadful parts of the evening.
