The Washington Capitals are fully behind the Washington Nationals. And on Tuesday, the team debuted another new gesture to support the local baseball team.
Ahead of the start of the World Series, the Capitals debuted new nameplates in the locker room. The nameplates feature the Nationals’ curly W logo on the side.
The Capitals will not be in DC during the World Series. Instead, they are currently on their longest road trip of the season, a five-game, 10-night trek that takes them through Canada before returning home November 1 to play the Buffalo Sabres.
Th nameplate gesture continues a longstanding relationship between the two clubs which saw the Capitals celebrate their first Stanley Cup at Nationals Park.

Last Friday, the Nationals were at Capital One Arena for the Caps’ game against the Rangers. Adam Eaton announced the starting lineup before the game and Max Scherzer dropped the ceremonial first baseball. Caps fans did the Baby Shark chomp to salute the team. After the Capitals’ victory against Chicago on Sunday, the team played Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It in the locker room, another nod to the Nationals and NLCS MVP Howie Kendrick.
Mark Lerner, a principal owner of the Nationals, is also a partner of Ted Leonsis’s Monumental Sports & Entertainment.
