Ozzy Osbourne rocks the NHL’s Washington Capitals

30 teams.

16 spots.

Hockey fans are only about 3 weeks away from the best time of the year, as the NHL Playoffs are on the horizon.

As many races are still to be decided, three NHL teams have already clinched playoff spots as of this week: the Vancouver Canucks, the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals.

The Capitals have already stepped up with a promo for their playoff run and, for a little inspiration, they had Ozzy Osbourne star in their campaign.

With a guest appearance from the Ozman himself, “Let Me Hear You Scream” serves as the soundtrack; the song has been used as one of the team's re-entry videos when the players come back on the ice after intermissions this season, so Caps fans are already in the rock n’ roll loop.

The Capitals theme this season has been “Unleash The Fury,” and they’ve had a few celebrities involved in the campaign. Ozzy donned a Caps jersey for his portion, which was added to a montage featuring Pat Sajak, David Gregory and Tom Green.
