Baby Caps playoffs

When the Stanley Cup Playoffs arrive teams have to call on all of their fans, even the ones that are only a few hours old.

The Washington Capitals teamed up with MedStar Health to start some fans off real young this week. As part of the "Baby Caps" program, mascot SlapShot visited MedStar Washington Hospital Center to give out some pint-sized fan gear.

The Capitals will take on the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Sunday at Madison Square Garden and now, they'll have at least a few extra fans screaming for them (or maybe a bottle).

Fans are also encouraged to upload photos of their bundles of joy at with a chance to win tickets to a 2024-25 Capitals game.

We're sure the little boys and girls will be rooting hard for the Capitals this postseason. Once they are able to raise their arms, that is.
