On Saturday, the Washington Capitals hosted Hockey Fights Cancer Night at Verizon Center. There were so many great moments that evening that it’s hard to cover them all. But here’s another one.
Nicklas Backstrom’s Wish Kid for the evening was five-year-old cancer survivor Maeve, who is currently in remission. Before the game, Maeve and her newfound friend Addy, stood by the glass during warmups. It was at that moment Maeve first met hunky forward Tom Wilson.
Her reaction is priceless.
