CALGARY, Alberta (WIVB) - In Calgary, defending NHL champions, the Washington Capitals, took on the Flames, but one of the best moments of the night came before the puck dropped.
Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin tossed his warm-up stick over the glass and into the hands of a young fan.
The kid is clearly a fan of the "The Great 8." He wore his jersey to the game and shows some obvious excitement after receiving the gift.
As if that wasn't enough, the Capitals pulled off a shootout win, taking the game 4-3.
