The Washington Capitals began the NHL season as one of the favorites to win Lord Stanley's Cup, and for all intents and purposes, they remain one of the favorites. However, thanks to a painful eight game losing streak there were plenty around the Washington DC area who were ready to throw all their Caps gear into the Potomac River and wait for next year's Redskins to take the field.
The Caps finally broke their streak earlier this week, and currently they have won consecutive games and appear to be back on the right track heading into their big Winter Classic showdown with the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 1. As part of the preparation for the Winter Classic HBO is filming one of their 24/7 series and it features the Caps and the Pens.
One of the best parts of the 24/7 is the fans get to catch some great behind the scenes footage of their favorite athletes. In the most recent episode that meant watching the Watching Capitals celebrate their second consecutive win by getting down Jersey Shore style. That's right the Caps are fist pumping to the hits spun by Jersey Shore's Pauly D.
