Just a night after the Washington Capitals played in a physical game against the Philadelphia Flyers, they came home to host the Florida Panthers. With just under 12 minutes to go, Panthers forward Krystofer Barch is sitting in the penalty box and pulls out a loose tooth. Being the away team there aren’t many Florida fans in Washington DC for the game, he gets the attention of a young kid and offers him up his tooth as a “souvenir.” This then leads Capitals announcer Joe Beninati to say, “I wonder how much that will go for on Ebay?” Follow us on Twitter: @DCSportsKings

Nothing unusual about seeing an NHL player pull out a tooth in the middle of a game, but Florida's Krys Barch took it a step further Saturday night in Washington, tossing his tooth to a fan for a souvenir.
Capitals announcer Joe Beninati said what the rest of us are thinking: "I wonder how much that will go for on Ebay?"
The do-it-yourself dentistry is no big deal...

In their first game without Alex Ovechkin this season, the Washington Capitals had no trouble dispatching the Philadelphia Flyers inside Wells Fargo Center, beating them by a score of 7-0. The Capitals held on in the first period for a span of about 17 minutes where they were outshot horrifically before rebounding nicely to score four...
Via Puck Daddy's Harrison Mooney, Florida Panthers scrapper Krys Barch lost a tooth during the course of the Panthers' 3-2 shootout loss to Washington, and when he was being "chirped at" by a few unruly Capitals fans, Barch chose to mockingly offer a pulled-out tooth to the gents jabbering at him:
If I’ve said it once, I have said it a thousand times. Hockey players are a rare breed. They pull their own teeth out like the tooth fairy is handing out Benjamins. Earlier this week, it was the Penguins’ Pascal Dupuis using his extracting his chicklet. Fact: tooth fairies do not hand out Benjamins.
However, that didn’t stop Florida Panthers’ winger Krys...

The Washington Capitals didn’t want to dwell on the absence of leading goal scorer Alex Ovechkin. They viewed the star winger’s injured right shoulder as a challenge, an opportunity for others to take up the mantle of manufacturing offense.
In their first game without Ovechkin since February 2012, the Capitals seized the moment, putting on an impressive scoring display with...

The Blues had high expectations going into Friday’s game against Florida, but no one in the locker room was suggesting that a rematch with the Panthers would bear a result similar to their first meeting Oct. 5.
The difference on the scoreboard in the Blues’ 4-0 win Friday over Florida wasn’t quite the same as the lopsided affair between the teams in the second game of the...
