A decade ago, one of the greatest regular-season games in Washington Capitals history happened at Verizon Center.
After DC was blanketed with over two feet of snow, the Capitals and Penguins renewed their rivalry on Super Bowl Sunday 2010.
Sidney Crosby scored the game’s first two goals to the ire of the Caps fans who successfully made it to the arena. Gross. Alex Ovechkin responded with a lamplighter of his own, but then Jordan Staal found the back of the net twice himself. By the middle of the second period, the Penguins had a commanding 4-1 lead. The game appeared over.
And then the Snovechkin magic happened.
