Rachel Fehr, Mandy, Flemmer, Kim Hendricks, Mackenzie Keeley, Megan Knuble and Diondra Steckel made valentines with patients at Children’s National Medical Center on Feb. 7. Visiting Children’s National and participating in an arts and crafts project with the patients has become an annual tradition for the Caps players’ wives and girlfriends. This marks the third consecutive year that they have visited the hospital and was the first of two visits the Capitals will make to Children’s National Medical Center this month, as players are scheduled to visit patients on Feb. 24.
