Since they were hosting the Leafs, the Capitals also had a Canada-themed night at Verizon Center where they played some Tragically Hip and held a maple syrup chugging contest.
They also promoted a themed food for the night — a Canadian favourite, poutine! Or more accurately, their take on poutine.
As any good Canadian knows, poutine is a dense concoction of cheese curds and gravy, so heavy it sticks to the ribs to keep you warm in the winter. Not the healthiest of choices for a meal, poutine is all sorts of goodness and, well, doesn’t at all look like what the Caps were promoting.
And, naturally, they took a good ribbing on Twitter for their take on poutine.
Hey, at least the Capitals won the game.
