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?
