With the way things have gone for the Capitals recently, it's probably not surprising that the only way they can score goals also causes great physical pain.
Case in point, the final goal of Wednesday night's 4-2 loss to Ottawa, which was scored by Mathieu Perreault in a very unusual way. As Perreault told the Washington Times' Steve Whyno:
My tongue was out, so it bounced off my tongue and in the net. These things happen when you go to the net.

We do enjoy Craig Laughlin's sobriety test line near the end of this video. Between that and Joe B's "someone medicate me" line from the Carolina game, it makes us wonder what's really going on up top.
