Washington Capitals Tomas "Flash" Fleischmann's stick went flying into the crowd on Wednesday night.  Thankfully, no one was hurt and Flash got his lucky stick back -- which he used to score a goal shortly after incident.

“I was nervous there for a second that I wouldn’t get it back; I liked that stick. Luckily I had a spare to trade for it. I had a good feeling about that stick. I didn’t know I would score with it but I’m glad I got it back.”

The lucky fan actually caught the flying stick!
