The Washington Capitals' beloved television broadcast team of Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin finished their 2011-12 season after the Caps defeated the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals about two weeks ago.
Yet, like any hockey player after a grueling season, "Locker" underwent surgery this week to fix his ailing hip.
While watching Monday's Game 5 against the New York Rangers in his hospital bed, Laughlin made sure to Rock The Red, as you can see above.
Unfortunately, the Caps fell short in a 3-2 overtime loss, which did not do Laughlin's hip any good:
And just when my hip was starting to feel better...a painful blow! But I still have confidence they can turn this around. #CAPS
