Despite scoring a goal, Washington Capitals Brooks Laich was on the losing end of Game 7 against the surprising Montreal Canadians. When driving home from the arena, the Canadian-born center, noticed a car pulled off on the side of the road.
A woman and her daughter, Mary Ann Wangemann and Lorraine, hit a pothole which did a number on their tire. Laich pulled over and offered assistance to the two who had just attended the game. In about 40 minutes time, he had changed a tire, and along the way, apologized for the loss.
The Wangemanns were on their way with a feel good story to tell their friends and family.
