The Caps and Nats Teammance Continues

Players and staff wore Nationals shirts on Wednesday

by Taryn Bray @tarynbray /

Both teams have been vocal about their support for one another - they are what you may call a "teammance" (team romance).

After a successful first pitch by Alex Ovechkin at game four of the NLDS at Nationals Park, the Capitals are continuing their support of the Nationals.

The entire team and coaching staff wore Nats shirts on the team plane to Nashville Wednesday afternoon ahead of the elimination game between the Nats and the Dodgers in L.A.

Players who attended game three in D.C. this past Sunday include Evgeny Kuznetsov, John Carlson, Nicklas Backstrom, Braden Holtby and Garnet Hathaway and you can guarantee that if the Nationals continue their World Series run, our guys will be right there with them.
