Flashback Friday: Henri”The Pocket Rocket”Richard

By ThomAs we start getting our feet wet with this blogging thing, we thought we would add “Flashback Friday.”  Every Friday we will try to highlight a player from the past.  Could be a former Capital as we slowly scan some of Rodger’s film negatives or just a player we find interesting.  Sometimes, it might just be some interesting memorabilia.For the first Friday, we are going to start with an authentic autographed Henri “The Pocket Rocket” Richard postcard sent to us by a friend.  Henri Richard finished his career the same year our Washington Capitals were born.Rodger grew up watching “The Pocket Rocket” play against his home town Red Wings and I may even have seen him play against the Caps as I attended several games with my father in 74.  Not likely though as he only played 16 games that year.Watching the Capitals vs. Lightning tonight and another goal for Knuble!  18 goals in his last 22 games.
