Reunited and it feels so good...
Former Capitals head coach Barry Trotz and assistant coaches Lane Lambert and Mitch Korn all received their highly overdue Stanley Cup championship rings prior to the Caps Monday night game vs. the Islanders.
Now a part of the Islanders organization, the coaches met with their former championship team in the visiting team locker room at Barclays Center, where they were greeted with hugs and handshakes from their former players.
After receiving their rings and reuniting with their former team, some of the coaches, namely Trotz, decided to say a few words.
"You can do it again too," Trotz said, "You'll have to go through the f***ing Island, okay? But you guys can do it again."
Trotz, who became the head coach of the New York Islanders soon after his contract with the Capitals expired in June, brings a winning attitude to the Island.
"I'll hopefully have the same memories on the Island as I always will with you guys," Trotz said.
The Caps beat the Islanders in Barry Trotz's territory 4-1 Monday night.
"It's going to be really hard to not like you guys. It really is. Because you're always family," Trotz said.
Once a Capital, always a Capital.
