Andrew Gordon shows the Capitals a little love

By Cindy Boren

Andrew Gordon was really, really happy about scoring his first NHL goal. It's the kind of thing you never forget. But there's something to be said for ACP (advance celebratory planning)...just so that, when you skate to the bench, you don't, you know, plant a smooch on the guy who fed you the puck, Marcus Johansson.

On the slurp meter the kiss was more "awwww" than "ewww" and the evening ended well with the Capitals regaining their touch with a 5-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils. So, maybe everybody should kiss.

"I didn't figure it'd be on TV." Gordon said. "I just wanted to show my appreciation."

Note to Gordon: another way to do this is to purchase the guy the fermented beverage of his choice.

Wow, Cindy Boren. Way to be backward. Guy can't show some excitement without you questioning his masculinity?

Cindy,

Marcus is only 20 yrs old. Are you suggesting Andrew Gordon should celebrate his goal by providing alcohol to a minor? TSK TSK..... Hah

It was cute and spontaneous. I hope they put a photo of it in the team program next year. :) That said, hopefully Andrew G. won't do that after every goal. It would probably lose its "spur of the moment" charm at that point.
