After DMV athletes on other teams spent the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs rallying around the Capitals, some of the Caps are returning the favor.
Brooks Laich, John Carlson, Mathieu Perreault and Joel Ward attended last night’s United game, complete in matching personalized jerseys.
News to me: Joel Ward mentioned in a postgame interview with CSN Washington that he and Dwayne De Rosario went to high school together in Ontario and met through a mutual barber.
United beat the Rapids 2-0, but unfortunately Ward missed DeRo’s first-half goal thanks to “Perry’s lateness.” Way to throw Perreault under the bus.
