Spring Puck Surprise Winners Meet Mike Green
It was a good day for five lucky fans as they watched the Caps shut out Minnesota, 3-0, then headed downstairs to hang with defenseman Mike Green after the game. The Capitals held their annual Spring Puck Surprise fundraiser Sunday, taking $40 donations to benefit Caps’ charities in exchange for autographed pucks. Of the 455 pucks sold (with Hershey’s Kisses!), 450 were signed by Caps players, but five of them simply had a WINNER sticker on them.
