Justin Bieber, Canada's most controversial export, attends Game 6 of Capitals-Maple Leafs

Justin Bieber, Canada's most controversial export, attends Game 6 of Capitals-Maple Leafs

Justin Bieber, pop star and occasional petty criminal, showed up to Air Canada Centre for Game 6 of the first-round playoff series between the Capitals and Maple Leafs. Toronto entered the game fighting to stay alive after the Caps took a 3-2 lead. 

Here's a shot of bleach-blonde Biebs watching from a box. 

If you know anything about Bieber, you probably know that he's from Canada, so he can be forgiven for supporting his country, yadda yadda. He does NOT, however, get a pass for these awful, awful custom sweaters. 

He shared this picture of two "Da Biebz" sweaters draped over the seats of a private plane earlier in the day.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say these might be the least cool custom jerseys I've ever seen. And that's saying something given the average cool quotient of custom jerseys. 

Let me also point out that Bieber, like his countryman Drake, has repped a ton of different teams' gear. 

Check him out wearing a Blackhawks hat while posing with the Kings mascot. For goodness sake, have some self-respect. 

Shout out to Brody for making the Drake connection, too. 

Earlier this year, For The Win's Charles Curtis did an "investigation" into a potential Bieber sports curse. The conclusion? Keyshawn Johnson's least favorite neighbor has a mixed track record. He's nowhere near Kardashian level. 

But still, if there's any bad juju around Bieber, Caps fans will take it.

Tom Wilson thanks healthcare workers, reflects on Caps' season in Instagram post

Tom Wilson thanks healthcare workers, reflects on Caps' season in Instagram post

Saturday, April 5, was supposed to be the Capitals 2019-20 regular season finale.

But due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NHL has been suspended since mid-March. There's nothing but uncertainty ahead.

For Capitals forward Tom Wilson, being at home on Saturday night instead of taking the ice for the team's season finale resonated with him. Wilson took to Instagram to post a reflective photo, calling it a privilege to wear the Capitals uniform and thanking everyone that is doing a part to help combat the spread of the virus.

"Feels weird to think our last regular season game would have been played last night," Wilson wrote. "With the future uncertain, it is sometimes nice to reflect. It is a privilege to wear this jersey every night we play. I hope everyone is staying safe and thank you to everyone who is working so hard to keep us safe."

Wilson has been using his unexpected off time to give back to the community. Earlier this week, Wilson delivered an inspirational message and sent gifts to Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to help children going through unforeseen changes due to the pandemic.

Watch T.J. Oshie teach his daughter Lyla how to ride a bike

Watch T.J. Oshie teach his daughter Lyla how to ride a bike

Despite the circumstances, the past few weeks have been an exciting time for the Oshie family.

Just over two weeks ago, Capitals forward T.J. Oshie and his wife, Lauren, welcomed their third child into the world, Campbell.

But on Sunday, it was the couple's oldest child, Lyla, that stole the show.

Lyla, who just turned six last month, accomplished something that she will remember for years to come: learning how to ride a bike.  

How adorable is that?

As Lyla bikes up the driveway, T.J. is a step behind her, making sure she doesn't fall. The Caps winger had an ear-to-ear grin on his face, such a proud dad.

With the NHL season on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, hopefully more Papa Oshie content comes as a result.
