Former Washington Capital Alexander Semin made his first appearance against his old team. Now a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, it is clear that Semin still has some fans in the D.C. area…like this girl who loves her some Semin.
Is this just an innocent sign made by a legitimate fan of Alexander Semin, or did she know what she was doing?
We don’t want to put the girl on blast but with its simplicity comes some hilarity, and something about the snow bikini photos tells us she knew what she was doing.
What did she mean by hoping Semin scored for Brouwer? Well, Troy Brouwer, a member of the Capitals had some choice words after Semin skipped town for Carolina:
It was tough to lose his scoring ability when he wanted to play. But all in all, I think we’ve been doing well without him.
Some nights you didn’t even know if he was gonna come to the rink. It’s tough to play alongside guys like those because you don’t know what you’re gonna get out of ‘em.

Alexander Semin's return to Washington D.C. Tuesday caused quite a stir.Semin was an enigmatic performer during his tenure with the the Washington Capitals, demonstrating world-class offensive ability and the magical ability to disappear for weeks on end.“Some nights you didn’t even know if he was gonna come to the rink,” Capitals forward Troy Brouwer observed during a...

The post Capitals Fan Welcomes Back Alexander Semin To Washington, D.C. appeared first on Unathletic.
A little under four weeks ago, the Hurricanes made the decision to send Zac Dalpe down to the AHL to make room for Tim Wallace. Dalpe has been one of Carolina's best forward prospects for quite some time now but he has yet to make his mark in the NHL despite making the Hurricanes out of training camp for three years in a row. I'll admit that he was in a bit over his head...
Former Capital Alexander Semin will make his first appearance at Verizon Center on Tuesday with his new team, the Carolina Hurricanes. Semin was a polarizing figure in Washington, either going on jaw-dropping scoring binges or long droughts with poorly-timed penalties. And that was when he wasn't injured.
Carolina Hurricanes at Washington Capitals
7 p.m, Verizon Center
TV: FS-Carolinas, CSN-Washington
The big storyline going into tonight will be that it is Alexander Semin's first game at Washington since signing with the Carolina Hurricanes. Semin had many successful years with the Caps before leaving for Carolina via free agency and he was pretty popular with a lot of...
After Game 10, I did a brief overview of the Hurricanes season up until that point and determined that the Hurricanes should be in good shape for the rest of the year. There were plenty of reasons to be confident, the team was crushing their competition at even strength, had two good scoring lines and were just finishing up a road trip where they went 4-1-1 against Atlantic &...
So yeah, Jordan and Eric Staal. This is the first game versus Jordan Staal since he was traded and we know that Steiggy and Errey and the rest of ROOT Sports will milk this for all it is worth. THE DRAMA. THE MEMORIES~~~~~

On Tuesday night the Carolina Hurricanes came to town to take on the Washington Capitals. With the Capitals up 2-0 and a threat of the game getting out of hand, Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward came up with a huge stop that deserves to be considered a candidate for save of the year. Joel Ward had 3/4 of the net empty after Cam kicked out this rebound, and Cam magically got a piece...
Last night was easily the worst game the Hurricanes played this season. It wasn't the first time they've been shutout this season but it's was the most dominated they have been at even strength since last season. Carolina's defensive play reached a new low last night by surrendering 23 scoring chances against to the Caps at even strength play alone. The Capitals only...
Malkin skated for 30 minutes today:
Bylsma told reporters after the Penguins' practice in Sunrise, Fla. that Malkin went on the ice after being symptom-free Tuesday.
One thing Malkin will miss on this trip is to match up against his old friend Jordan Staal.
Pierre Lebrun had an interesting write up on Staal today. Two interesting notes:
To give credit where it is due again @ice_chip on Twitter (Chip Alexander from Raleigh News & Observer) is the best source for daily updates on the Canes constantly changing lineup and injury situation this days.
Tonight we get Alexander Semin's return to Washington. Thursday we see Brandon Sutter vs. Jordan Staal in Raleigh. Reunion week is here.

With Evgeni Malkin injured, Brandon Sutter has had to step up and move outside of his typical third line center role. Jordan Staal knows a thing or two about that situation. Tonight the Pittsburgh Penguins face Jordan Staal for the first time...
I'm pretty sure that when the **** got considerably real whenever the last offseason was, I demanded that Kenny Holland sign Alexander Semin to a one-year ten million dollar deal. Because I know what I'm doing. I know hockey and I watch NHL On The Fly now because we get the NHL Network on the ship and plus I read everything HockeyInHD writes and he's a pharmacist of the...
