Anthony Cirelli was the Easter bunny for the Tampa Bay Lightning team Easter party. He took one for the team in the heat and was a real champ with the kids. Good job, Tony! Go get some ice cream, you’ve earned it. [Tampa Bay Times]
“He was really good,” Maroon said with a smile when asked Monday. “Cirelli was a huge, huge hit at the Easter party. Hats off to him. He didn’t have to do that. It’s 100 degrees outside and he’s probably leaking in that suit. He was a great sport and all the kids loved it.”

Also in Capitals news, the Screaming Eagle is coming back as a potential reverse retro jersey. I’d like to see an updated logo be the new permanent one. Not that I have strong thoughts about the current one.

This was an interesting story about the NCAA Hobey Baker winner getting caught doping, but not really, but also maybe?
Been working on this for a few days. USADA announced Dryden McKay accepted a six-month sanction for an anti-doping violation. A deeper dive into what happened, how things unfolded and why athletes need to be so careful: https://t.co/BLVCgjcwA3— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) April 18, 2022
