PHOTO: Braden Holtby's Wikipedia Page Was Briefly Tampered With

It used to be that when your team won a big game thanks to the heroic performance of one player, you would go out and make signs saying "In [Player Name] We Trust," and [Player Name] For President." If you were really wanton about it, you could go out and deface some property by writing the player's name in graffiti. People don't do that last thing so much anymore. Why would you when you have Wikipedia.

It seems that in the hours after Braden Holtby made 44 saves in Washington's 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins,a few overzealous fans got their hands on Holtby's Wikipedia page and made a few edit.
