The Tiger Does the Hot Lap Before Tuesday’s Capitals Practice

First it was Jay Beagle. Then it was Alex Ovechkin. Following them, Barry Trotz became a hit doing this pre road morning skate ritual. Now with the Washington Capitals having lost Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night, somebody else had to take the hot lap. Before Tuesday afternoon’s Capitals practice at T-Mobile Arena the day before Game 2, it was third-line center Lars Eller doing the honors. 

This road tradition is typically done at morning skates but with the games in Las Vegas starting at 5 p.m. local time, the hot lap tradition was moved to practices the day before games.

We’ll have more from practice later so stay tuned to NoVa Caps for all your coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals.
