The Washington Capitals Are Encouraging Poor Sportsmanship In Our Youth

In between periods of the Capitals game on Tuesday a youth hockey team participated played a mini game to keep the crowd that wasn't in line at the bathroom entertained. That's not out of the ordinary, they do it all the time. What was abnormal, however, was how the team from Reston, VA chose to celebrate their goals.

Apparently the Caps promotion staff suggested the snow angel celebration, and said that anyone who did it would receive a game puck.

"I think they misunderstood and they thought if anybody does a snow angel they get a game puck, not just the scorer," (Joshua Potter, coach of the youth team) said. "If you notice, a couple of players from the other team are doing it too."
