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.
