The Washington Capitals began this season’s Mentor’s Trip right by defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 on Saturday. A certain Dad’s Trip tradition returned in the midst of post-game celebrations.

Kenichi Ohashi, father of Capitals’ video analyst, Tim Ohashi, did 100 pushups with forwards Tom Wilson, Carl Hagelin, Nic Dowd, and T.J. Oshie. He was hoisted in the air by cheering players.

The pushup tradition started during the Mentor’s Trip back in 2017. Washington beat the Dallas Stars 4-3 in overtime and earned their first win in Dallas since 2008. Kenichi Ohashi promised to do 100 pushups if the Capitals won.

Who knows? Maybe we’ll see the pushups continue with a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.
