    Ghost Of Dale Earnhardt Sr. Shows Up To Washington Capitals Game

    In addition to being one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history, Dale Earnhardt Sr. had one of the most distinguishable appearances the sport has ever seen. Some fans, however, have managed to master the look and garb of “The Intimidator.” One of those fans was in the District of Columbia on Tuesday to watch the Washington Capitals take on the Calgary Flames. Seated right behind the glass, the Earnhardt doppelganger quickly became a hit at the Verizon Center. Granted, Earnhardt wasn’t for known for his beer-drinking skills, but at least the doppelganger’s outfit was spot-on, with Goodwrench firesuit and trademark sunglasses.

    Pushing for playoffs, Isles lose Strome to broken wrist

    Busy day in Brooklyn on the news front. Just hours after recalling Jaroslav Halak from AHL Bridgeport, Newsday reported that forward Ryan Strome suffered a broken wrist, an injury that will likely end his season. Strome, 23, suffered the injury during last night’s big 3-2 win over the Rangers. He exited after playing just nine minutes, and didn’t return. Though he’s been something of a disappointment this season — he was parked as a healthy scratch under former head coach Jack Capuano — Strome still racked up 13 goals and 30 points in 69 games, averaging 14:36 TOI per night. So it’s definitely a loss, and a fairly significant hole to fill. Newsday’s Arthur Staple suggests that one of Shane Prince
