As we celebrate the Capitals' 40th anniversary, let's take a moment to...
Happy Birthday, Tomas Kundratek!
For most of the Capitals Outsider readership, Tomas Kundratek isn’t exactly a household name. He’s the latest addition to the Bears blueline, acquired in a trade with the Rangers back in early November for Francois Bouchard (RW). So far, the move has looked good for both the Bears and Kundratek – he’s already passed the halfway mark toward his 2010-11 point total (12) in just 16 games with the Bears.
Normally, this is the part of the article where we’d suggest a hypothetical birthday present (good health, league-leading status, etc). But being the go-getter that he is, Tomas took care of that himself 2:35 into tonight’s game against the Baby Pens. Braden Holtby provided a strong supporting role in the event, as well, blocking all 28 shots sent in his direction. After all, who could ask for more than the game-winning goal in a 6-0 shutout victory over the franchise rivals?
