Capitals fan treks to Antartica to remind penguins who won Cup

Capitals fan treks to Antartica to remind penguins who won Cup A Washington Capitals fan traveled to the Antarctic Peninsula just to troll the Pittsburgh Penguins. Sampson Coe shared a photo Wednesday on Facebook of himself wearing a Stanley Cup champions shirt with a waddle of penguins behind him. Coe, 29, told Scott Allen of the Washington Post that he and his wife, Lorelei, are in the midst of a one-year sabbatical that will take them to every continent. "Been planning something along those lines since we booked the trip last year, well before the boys lifted Lord Stanley," Coe said. "(We) had to pack light given the amount of ground we're covering (one backpack each), so I only have a few T-shirts in the rotation.

Mark Scheifele scored twice for the Jets (13-8-2), and Brandon Tanev had their other goal.

Tanev got Winnipeg started at 7:01 of the first period with his fourth goal this season on a short-handed breakaway against Casey DeSmith, who made 24 saves.

Crosby tied it at 18:13 with a slick backhand in close that fooled goalie Connor Hellebuyck. It was Crosby's 10th of the season.

Scheifele put the Jets back in front 39 seconds into the second on a feed from captain Blake Wheeler. But that only lasted until Sheahan got credit for poking a loose puck over the line after Hellebuyck failed to corral it at 4:40.

Wheeler also set up Scheifele's second goal of the night and 13th this season, which rocketed past DeSmith before he had much time to react at 16:00.
