The Caps celebrate a win

By Dan Steinberg


Just your typical video of the Caps celebrating a narrow mid-January win, complete with Nicklas Backstrom appearing to curse at the Islanders (or possibly at his teammates, or at fans, or at various mythological noblemen imagined out of the pages of The Heimskringla), and Matt Hendricks attempting to make out with Braden Holtby through his mask.

As always, such a celebration should remind us that winning is better than losing. And that Snorri Sturluson, credited as the author of The Heimskringla, probably had the best name of all time.

I can't believe sweet Nicky could say such foul words. I am so proud of my fellow Swede :-)

Seriously, it's nice to see that, under it all, Backstrom's kinda a competitive d_, err, jerk.
