Laich helps stranded motorist
Driving following Washington's 2-1 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of their first-round series, Laich pulled over when he saw the stopped car and got out to lend a hand, The Washington Post's website reported Thursday.
The Capitals said they confirmed the story with Laich.
He scored for Washington on Wednesday night, but it wasn't enough: The Capitals became the first top-seeded team eliminated by an eighth-seeded team after taking a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven NHL playoff series.
