Molly I., a sophomore high school student from Baltimore, MD, attended the Capitals-Islanders game Friday with three of her hockey-loving friends: Sydney, Catherine, and Morgan. They all brought signs for warmups.
“We had brought a poster to a previous game,” Molly said. “All the players were pointing and laughing. We even got Eller to wink at us. We just like to have fun.”
Encouraged, they decided to step up their sign game and all hold up something clever along the glass.
I love you Tom Wilson, my boyfriend says it’s ok read one.
My ex-boyfriend was an Islanders fan, it just didn’t work out read another.
Before I turn 18 I want to see the Caps win the Stanley cup, see the banner raised, and get a puck read a third.
But it was Molly’s sign that got the attention of Jakub Vrana.
