from Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post,
Monday morning at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, four Gatorade bottles perched on the boards in front of the bench, evenly spaced. Nine rolls of tape — some white, some black, some red — sat on another set of boards, up against the glass. An orange bucket of pucks rested on the floor aside the bench. There wasn’t a player in sight.
Forty-five minutes later, when the Washington Capitals buzzed about the ice, no one thought twice that the pucks, the gloves, the Gatorade, the tape, the sticks, the towels — the tools — would be in their proper stations. Craig “Woody” Leydig has put the pieces in place for thousands of hockey practices over a quarter century on the job. Who would notice that everything’s there, unless it wasn’t?
“What do I like about my job?” Leydig said earlier this week. “To be honest with you, I like everything about it.”
