Barry Trotz busts out dance moves with Capitals dad

Washington coach lets loose with father of Marcus Johansson after win @NHLdotcom

Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz isn't one to back down from a challenge, even in a dance-off.

So when Lars Johansson, father of Washington forward Marcus Johansson, called for the coach to join in his victory dance, for some reason set to the 1980 pop track "You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall & Oates, Trotz wasn't going to stand idly by and do nothing.

Tweet from @Capitals: A win on the #CapsDads trip always leads to a dance w/ Lars Johansson... Last night in STL, Coach Trotz joined in on the fun. #FridayFeeling

Trotz busted a brief move along with Lars in the locker room to wild applause from the team.

Lars is tagging along on the Capitals Dads trip, which started in St. Louis with a convincing 7-3 win over the Blues and included a tour of the Budweiser brewery on Thursday. 

Tweet from @HomeOfBud: The #CapsDads definitely left their mark on our #STL Brewery yesterday! @Capitals

The Capitals Dads trip continues to Dallas on Saturday, and there could be some better moves ahead if the winning continues for Washington.
