The Caps and Christmas Past

I wanted to know what Christmas mornings meant to the Caps in their youth, and specifically how much of a role their respective enthusiasm for hockey played in their requests of Santa, so I went around the locker room at Kettler yesterday after practice and asked. Maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised that Michal Neuvirth’s big Christmas wish was for a mask, or that D.J. got excited opening a ‘Rock -em Sock’-em’ video. Jay Beagle’s family, which included upwards of a dozen cousins nearby in Calgary, enjoyed a six-on-six Christmas morning skate of shinny — with Grandpa Beagle still lacing them up for the big holiday game.
