WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Moments prior to the Men’s Olympic Hockey semifinals matchup between USA and Canada, Capitals players from the opposing countries engaged in a little nationalism-infused hijinks.

Thousands of miles from Sochi in Arlington, Va. (apparently too far a distance for Google to determine), John Carlson’s locker at Kettler Capitals Iceplex was the target, and yet-to-be-named Canadian players on the Caps roster were seemingly the assailants.

Of course, Carlson couldn’t defend his territory because he was too busy representing Team USA in the actual game.

Thankfully heroism doesn’t discriminate between young and old.

Enter 19-year-old American defencemen patriot Connor Carrick, defending his country in the only way he knows how.

USA would lose to Canada, 1-0, and will play Finland for the bronze medal on Friday.
