There was incredible drama Sunday night in Washington, D.C. when the Washington Capitals hosted the Blue Jackets in Game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference quarterfinals but it didn't really have anything to do with the action on the ice.

During warmups, the Capitals' Brett Connolly tried to give a young girl a puck but it was cruelly stolen from her twice before she finally got it.

It's clear from the start that Connelly intends to give a puck to the little girl banging on the ice. But, as soon as he tosses it, it's snatched up and given to a little boy on her right. So, Connolly tosses another puck. This time, the same man grabs the puck and gives to the boy on her other side. It's honestly a little enraging. Who is this man that keeps giving the puck to the boys? Is he their dad? Does he just think boys like hockey more than girls? Is he oblivious to Connolly clearly mentioning that the puck is intended for the little girl? Does he just think Connelly will keep tossing pucks all night? Also, he clearly didn't see her heartbroken face after she lost out on the first puck.

Calvert was just onside when Josh Anderson brought the puck into the zone.

They are very different players and have had very different Hall of Fame careers, but in some ways they are inseparable.
