The Washington Capitals and the Washington Nationals had a crazy synergy of DC sports at the same time Saturday night. Both teams have essentially won their games in the same two minutes because of the clutch games.
In general, the sports teams of DC are connected in a futile way, but since the Caps have won their Stanley Cup, something more fun is happening.
I like that.
Pretty solid 2 minutes for sports DC:

The Nats tweeted the images on their Twitter account. At the same time that Brooks Orpik scored his overtime goal, field player Adam Eaton was treated to a thick baseball in the middle of the plate and hit a solo circuit to equalize 2 to 2 the Nationals and the Pirates at the bottom of the eighth inning. On the next field, Howie Kendrick hit an individual circuit in the left field to give the Nats a lead they would never have left.
Here is Charlie and Dave with this incredible call.

"It's a dead end," said Dave Jageler after Orpik's goal.
"Indeed," replied Charlie Slowes. "The capital letters bring two games to nothing at 1:48 in overtime. The Hurricanes were not easy to put away today.
Slowes returns to baseball Nats.
"Three bullets two shots at Eaton. Rodriguez puts the wind in the water, "said Slowes. "SWUNG ON. DRIVE IT DEEP RIGHT. Go Go. FADED AWAY. GOODBYE. What is at bat for Adam Eaton. "
It was a good moment for DC Sports, "said Jageler. "Caps score the goal of winning. Nats scores the draw.
"KENDRICK LEADS LEFT DEPTH", shouts Slowes. "RETURN PATH This one goes and goes GONEEEEE TO REVEVE BACK TO BACK HOME WORKS ON THE CONSECUTIVE LOCATIONS."
"It was a good two minutes for DC Sports," said Jageler. "Caps score the goal of winning. The Nats score tied. The score of Nats to lead. Sensational."
"So it's Orpik from Kuznetsov to Eaton to Kendrick," said Slowes.
"It's a lot of help," said Jageler.
After the match, Eaton, who sang Let's Go Caps before the first game of the Caps-Canes series, called the moment "pretty cool".
Adam Eaton took stock just after Brooks Orpik scored the winning goal for the Capitals: "I heard that. It's pretty cool. First of all, congratulations to them. They play very important games. We are still in April … every game is important. But hat to them. "

The Capitals Twitter account showed his appreciation of the two great moments by tweeting three emoji with cabbage to the nationals.

The cabbage emoji is a nod to the strange post-game celebration of the Nationals after big wins.
