Washington Capitals Practice Update & Audio for May 3: Oleksy talks puck to the face

Audio courtesy Sky Kerstein.

The Washington Capitals, still basking in the glow of their 3-1 win over the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, practiced at Kettler Capitals Iceplex Friday morning.

Steve Oleksy talked after practice more about the puck he took off his face than the beauty assist he had. “It seems like pucks and sticks are attracted to [my face],” Oleksy joked. “To be honest, it didn’t hurt when it happened. This morning there was a little more swelling. When I first woke up it was a little tough to talk, but it’s fine.”
