Celebrities making apperances at playoff sporting events is nothing new, and the Caps are no different.
Midway through the first period, fans at the Verizon Center caught a glimpse of late-night TV legend David Letterman. Camera's caught him, and all of his heavily-bearded glory, taking in the game from the stands.
According to the first five pages of a Google search, Letterman and the Caps don't have much history. There's always room on the bandwagon though, especially for celebrities.
It's a great time to live near the Beltway, which is probably the first time in the highway/parking lot's history that people can say that. 20 games into the season, and both the Nationals and Orioles find themselves among the league's elite. Baltimore's dominance has been more surprising, given that their starting pitching was supposed to be terrible and is instead just average. That doesn't sound encouraging, but go ask an Orioles' fan if, before the season, they'd have taken a year of average starting pitching. The Nats look like a real contender once again, and Ryan Zimmerman's resurgence would be the most talked about part of this Nats season if it wasn't overshadowed by Bryce Harper's resurgence. How have the other 28 teams fared through the early part of the season? To the rankings!
30. ATLANTA BRAVES
The Dansby Swanson Era has gotten off to a rocky start. Some time in the 8-hole might help.
29. TORONTO BLUE JAYS
What a historically brutal start. At this point, they have to play .600 baseball for the rest of the year to even get to 90 wins.
28. SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Madison Bumgarner is out for two months after injuring himself in one of the most Madison Bumgarner ways possible, so crawling out of the NL West basement is only going to get harder.
27. PITTSBURGH PIRATES
The Marte suspension was shocking, and now the Pirates have to compete all summer against the Cubs and Cardinals without one of their best outfielders.
26. SEATTLE MARINERS
James Paxton has looked like an ace, which is great because Felix Hernandez has not.
25. KANSAS CITY ROYALS
That window sure closed quickly, didn't it?

If the Caps-Maple Leafs series goes past Game 6 tonight, fans officially now know the start of Game 7.
Sunday morning, the NHL announced the start time for a potential final game in the series.
Caps fans presumably would prefer to not have to deal with a Game 7, but if they have to, now they know when it would start.
