Pat Murphy shared a photo on Twitter that’s gotten tremendous interaction on the social media site. The longtime Washington Capitals fan has collected a jersey of every member from the Caps’ Game 5 Stanley Cup-winning lineup. In his photo, he arranged all the jerseys in their lines and defensive pairings.
“I’ve always looked at jerseys as a cool way to hold on to favorite players even after they move on,” Pat said in an interview. “I also just have a natural inclination to gravitate towards the guys doing the bottom-six work. The whole project essentially kicked off after the Stanley Cup win when I realized that, just by chance, I was only six or so players short of the roster and I thought, ‘this would be a pretty cool way to remember the Capitals’ first Stanley Cup.”
