Irish eyes smiled on the Caps St. Paddy's Day

Did Alex Ovechkin say a little Irish prayer on ice for the Washington Capitals when they played the Buffalo Sabres on St. Patrick's Day?  If he did, it worked wonders since the Caps won 5-3, the fans get wings, and Ovechkin scored just 19 seconds after the game began/Patricia Leslie

Buffalo had the puck in this photo in the second period, but it didn't last long since Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera, and Marcus Johansson all scored in the second with help from Mike Riberio (who had two assists for the night), Nicklas Backstrom (two assists for the night), Brouwer (an assist), Johansson (an assist), Joel Ward (two assists for the night), and Mathieu Perrault (with an assist and the last goal of the night in the third period)/Patricia Leslie

Another victory celebration with five goals which means the fans get free wings at Glory Days Grill.  Glory to St. Patrick.  A 'salute to the troops' was made twice during the game, and Katie Ledecky, area swimmer who won the Olympic Gold Medal, celebrated her 16th birthday at the game/Patricia Leslie
