Maybe an appearance by a member of the Capitals can convince Nationals and Orioles fans to cheer as one.
Capitals forward Jason Chimera will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Nationals game against the Orioles at Nationals Park on Sunday. The game is slated to begin at 1:35 p.m. and Chimera is scheduled to take the mound around 1:25.
Chimera set career highs in goals (20) and points (39) this season and was one of just six Capitals players to play in all 82 regular-season games.
Chimera finished the post-season tied for third on the team in points (7) and goals (4) and led the team in scoring (5 points) during the second round series against the New York Rangers.
