Capitals Honor Mites On Ice With Season Retrospective



    During the first intermission of every Washington Capitals home game at Verizon Center, local kids get a chance to play on the same ice as their heroes.

    The Caps played their last regular season home game Thursday, so as a tribute to those children who fell and clammed up during postgame interviews, the team put together a season retrospective.
