Caps Visit Children's National Medical Center

The Caps brought smiles to kids’ faces yesterday as they paid a visit to the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, Nicklas Backstrom, Brooks Laich, David Steckel, Matt Bradley, and Eric Fehr signed autographs, posed for pictures, and played video games with many of the patients at Children’s yesterday afternoon. It was a bright moment for children going through a difficult time, and a special memory they will always carry with them.

Children’s National Medical Center is a nationally-renowned hospital that provides the best medical care available for young patients using the latest technology. They have an ongoing relationship with the Washington Capitals in an effort to make staying in the hospital a little less daunting for kids. Last week, several of the players’ wives spent time at Children’s making valentines and crafts with patients.
It's hard to say who had more fun yesterday, the kids or the players. I'm pretty sure I know who won most of the games, though: the kids!
