The Capitals won their eighth straight game on Sunday, beating the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks, 4-3, on Mike Knuble's overtime game-winner.

The bigger story, though, was that DJ Pauly D of "Jersey Shore" fame attended the game at Verizon Center as Alex Ovechkin's special guest.

"Going To Support My Main Homie @ @ The Caps Game Right Now !!! Then Off To Zembo Shrine !!!!! ," Pauly D Tweeted before the game.

After the game, Pauly D showed up on the Jumbotron, posed with the Capitals' mascot and impressed Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who called him a "very polite young man."

He also chatted with a shirtless Ovechkin, and I've embedded the video below [hat tip to D.C. Sports Bog]:
