Mite celebrates with snow angel

CBJ@WSH: Mite scores, dives to make snow angel

A Capitals' Mites on Ice player scores and celebrates by diving to the ice to make a snow angel during the intermission at Verizon Center

We've seen this act before, even in the same theater. But it's still great.

One of the Capitals Mite players netted a goal during intermission and really went for it on the celly, just as a counterpart did back at the start of December.

After taking a nice lead pass and beating the goalie low on the glove side, little No. 6 went for the topical celebration (the Northeast is about to be hit with some snow), diving head first onto the ice and making a snow angel.

Sure, the goal was only worth one, but that celebration is a 10 out of 10.
