Hockey players are superstitious. After the Washington Capitals won Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, a contest that T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanen arrived to in style, they once again did the same commute for Monday’s Game 4.
On Sunday they told the media about the experience of riding the metro to Game 3 and hinted that they could do it again. For their safety and security, they did not reveal which stops they got on only saying that they live in the state of Virginia and that they rode the orange or silver line.
As they got to the Gallery Place-Chinatown station, Oshie realized he didn’t have enough money on his fare card. He stopped at a machine to reload.

As Oshie got to the gate, he drew cheers from the crowd. He went through and rejoined his buddy Niskanen.
