Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Well, that's one expensive beer. 

Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters was handed a hefty $14,037 fine for drinking a beer in the stands with a fan to celebrate the game-sealing interception against the Buffalo Bills that give Baltimore its ninth win in a row. 

Peters, who came to Baltimore in a trade with the LA Rams that allowed them to clear space for Jalen Ramsey, has been an excellent addition to the Ravens secondary. His tip preserved the one-score win as Josh Allen attempted to thread the needle with a minute left.

Unfortunately for Peters, not much beer even made it to the All-Pro's mouth. He showered the beer all over his face to celebrate with the surrounding fans. 

Despite the fine, it was another memorable moment for this memorable Ravens season. 

Peters' emoji-filled response was perfect. 

Thankfully for Peters, however, although he'll still have to pay the fine, something good is coming from something so pure. Thanks, Bud Light.

How to vote your favorite Capitals players into the 2020 All-Star Game

How to vote your favorite Capitals players into the 2020 All-Star Game

Well, it's almost another election year. Practice getting to the ballots by submitting your NHL 2020 All-Star game votes to send your favorite Capitals to St. Louis, MO. 

Washington sits atop the Metropolitan Division through stellar play from players like T.J. Oshie, Braden Holtby, John Carlson, and Alex Ovechkin - all of whom are featured on the league's official ballot. 

Click here to VOTE for your favorite Capitals. 

Those four players are listed as the primary options to represent the division on Jan. 26, but fans can scroll down and type other names in like Evgeny Kuznetsov too. Fans can also vote through the NHL app

Last season, Alex Ovechkin was selected as the Metropolitan representative by fans in the all-new voting format. He ended up taking the game off due to rest and got a one-game suspension as a result. 

He's played in the all-star game seven times, missing the event on three occasions. 

If fans want to select a less glamorous all-star captain, then Carlson could be an excellent option. He's had a terrific season for a defender, leading the Caps in points with 43 (11 G, 33 A), which is good for sixth on the league's leaderboards. That's 10 points more than Ovechkin. 

Holtby has had another solid season in net despite constant pressure from his No. 2, Ilya Samsonov. Oshie's balanced 22 points (11 G, 11 A) puts him in contention as one of Washington's fan favorite's, but look for Jakub Vrana to garner some votes to thanks to his prolific scoring season, notching 15 dazzling goals already. 

It's the fourth consecutive year fans can vote for the division captains, the remaining all-stars are selected by the NHL Operations Department. Following the format introduced in 2016, there will be 44 all-stars in total - six forwards, three defensemen and two goalies for four teams for each division. Competing for the $1 million prize, the three-game, 3-on-3 tournament format will emphasize pace and offense to give an exciting style of play for the fans. 

All-star voting closes Sunday, Dec. 23.

How to watch: Capitals vs. Bruins: Time, TV Channel, Live Stream

The Washington Capitals will be looking to get back to their winning ways against the Boston Bruins Wednesday night after a poor performance against Columbus on Monday. 

The Caps lost what could be called a trap game to the Blue Jackets 5-2, despite a solid performance in net from Braden Holtby. Similarly, though, the Bruins lost to the lowly Ottawa Senators - eerily by an identical 5-2 score. 

Nights like those just go to show any team can win on any given night in the NHL. The Capitals and Bruins will both be looking to bounce back in an interdivisional heavyweight contest, especially after a Capitals shootout win in mid-November.

Capitals-Bruins Players to Watch

Niklas Backstrom, C, Capitals: Other than Braden Holtby's stout performance in net, Backstrom was another bright spot on the stat sheet against Columbus on Monday night. He scored once and assisted another in the 5-2 losing effort in his first game back from an upper-body injury that kept him out the eight prior games. He now has 20 points (5 G, 15 A) through 24 games played this season.

Brad Marchand, LW, Bruins: Marchand is fourth in the league's scoring charts having scored 46 points (18 G, 26 A) through 31 games played. He scored a personal best 100 points last season and was instrumental once again on the offensive side of the Senators loss, assisting both goals. That performance could spark a more productive run for Marchand, as he had only notched one assist in the five previous games.
