Not really a huge hockey guy, but if I was the Capitals would be my team.  They are sitting at 9-4 and atop the southeast division.  They lost there first home game of the year last night 5-2 getting beat by the Dallas Stars.  Eric Nystrom scored his fourth goal of the season last night in crazy fashion.  He crossed over the puck to beat a defender then leaped in the air while shooting and scoring.  This is probably not a usual thing for him since he just matched his goal total for all of last year. The 28-year-old winger felt so blessed that he decided to pay it forward while in Washington, D.C. Nystrom said he took leftovers from the Stars' pregame meal to a local park, handing it over to two presumably homeless gentlemen. "Gave them the best meal they had in a long time," he said. Scoring goals and feeding the homeless.  What does this guy think he's the Tebow of the NHL? Like this post? Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter
