Coming home from Toronto with a 4-2 win and a 3-game winning streak, the Capitals were in a giving mood today. The team spent part of Monday afternoon visiting MedStar Health in Georgetown to spend time with some of the patients at the hospital. 

The Capitals’ players divided into groups and paid a visit to the hospital’s art room and oncology units.

The Capitals posed for pictures and signed autographs for the patients healing at the hospital.

They put smiles on kids’ faces as talked to them and spent time with them.

Slapshot, the Capitals’ mascot, joined the team as well.

Andre Burakovsky, who has been out since October 21 after having hand surgery, joined his teammates to spend time at the hospital.

Getting a picture with the captain, Alex Ovechkin, is something that these kids will never forget.

    I noticed that TJ Oshie is the one Cap who will hold a sick baby in the NICU. (And there is one more picture of Oshie by himself holding the baby in the NICU. Then again, his elder daughter was once a NICU denizen as she was born with intestines outside her body and needed surgery after birth to correct the condition.
