Max Scherzer To Drop Ceremonial Puck at Friday’s Caps-Rangers Game

The Washington Capitals announced Thursday afternoon that Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer will take part in the ceremonial puck drop before Friday night’s game between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals.

The Capitals have shown brotherly love for the Nationals during their current run to the World Series. On Monday, the Nationals won their first ever National League pennant. The Nationals and either the Houston Astros or New York Yankees will begin the best-of-seven series likely on Monday.

Max Scherzer and Ryan Zimmerman have demonstrated support for the Capitals in the  past, even attending Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final against the Knights dressed up in Caps gear.

Scherzer was interviewed about the Capitals accomplishment of winning a championship, and what it meant to him and the city, back in June of 2018.

The Capitals showed their gratitude by bringing the Stanley Cup to a Nationals game just days after the Capitals won the Cup, just prior to their storming of the Georgetown waterfront and a swim in the fountains.

By all accounts, the newly crowned  champions appeared to thoroughly enjoy the experience, and were even interviewed during the game.

The Nationals World Series appearance is the first for a team from Washington since the Washington Senators faced the New York Giants in the 1933 series.
