It took extra balls for Martin Erat to request a trade twice in the same calendar year, and now we know how he did it: By harvesting them from opposing players with his stick, apparently.

From Sunday night’s 4-1 New York Rangers’ victory, here is the Washington Capitals forward jabbing at the puck under Brian Boyle … among other things:

Look, we know from “24/7” that the Boyle family has a rather deep roster, but seriously, Martin Erat: Focus on hockey, not population control …

Or maybe he just wanted someone else to feel what it’s like to watch the Capitals at even strength this season …

Erat was given a two-minute minor for slashing, while Boyle was given an ice pack and a pair to tweezers for splinters.
