Redskins Celebrate Following Caps’ Win

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 10, 2012 – 9:30 am

(AP)

It’s been widely reported how bonkers some Washington Redskins teammates have become in the wake of the success of the local National Hockey League team, the Washington Capitals.

And that attitude was no different Wednesday night, as the Caps defeated the New York Rangers 2-1 to force a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Longsnapper Nick Sundberg — who we’ll hear from a little later — had the exclamation point button nearby at the conclusion of the game:

The Capitals’ win was positive on more than one level for linebacker Lorenzo Alexander:

Cornerback Josh Wilson showing his support:

Safety Reed Doughty brings up a great point:

Good ol’ No. 7, Joe Theismann, has been rooting for the Caps, despite growing up in New Jersey (I’m sure Devils fans understand…):

Sundberg, who tweeted his jubilation later in the night, expressed his yearning to get back on the ice:

You knew linebacker Brian Orakpo — who, like other teammates, has been to several Caps games this season — was pulling for a Game 7:

Running back Evan Royster would’ve been happy with the end result after tweeting this at the beginning of the game:

Kicker Graham Gano likened Wednesday’s Game 6 to one of his favorite holidays:

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan — who has also adopted the Capitals as his favorite NHL team — also had his eyes on another professional sports series Wednesday evening:

The Capitals and Rangers square off in Game 7 at 7:30 p.m. (ET) Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York.

And you can bet their fans on the Washington Redskins will be glued to their TVs, computers and cellphones watching every move.
