April 16 in the United States was the match of the first round of the Stanley Cup between the clubs “Washington Capitals” and “Columbus Blue Jackets”. At the warm-up, the Washington striker Brett Connolly noticed a little girl in the stands of the captain of his team Alexander Ovechkin, who asked for a puck. But it was not very easy to fulfill her request.

The hockey player took one puck and threw the girl over the fence, but it was intercepted by a taller child on the left. Connolly returned with a second souvenir, but he was taken away by the boy to the right of the little cheerleader. The athlete tried to give her the third washer, but she did not fly over the glass. For every failure, the girl reacted very vigorously.

With the fourth attempt, the player “Capitals” still gave the puck a child. All the “minute drama” was actively commented on by NBC reporters.


“She so badly wanted a puck that her reaction could melt your heart”
