Two stars of the Washington Capitals prepared for the start of a shortened NHL season by stopping by the Georgetown location of Morton’s, the Steakhouse (3251 Prospect Street, Northwest) Sunday evening for some protein power, a restaurant rep informs Washingtonian.

Moscow-born captain Alex Ovechkin—recently returned from a sojourn in the homeland—and his Canadian teammate, defenseman Michael Green, shared a steak dinner. Ovechkin had a 12-ounce filet—“his usual,” according to the rep—while Green ordered a New York strip. The men reportedly complimented Morton’s staff on the restaurant’s remodel, which was completed last week. The Capitals open the season at Tampa Bay on Saturday, January 19.
