Alex Ovechkin, Capitals Pose With Puppies for Calendar Shoot Supporting Animal Rescue (Photos)


The Washington Capitals snapped a three-game losing streak on Monday night, and they were rewarded the very next day with some puppies for their hard-fought win.

OK, that may not have been the case, but the Caps did hang out with some adorable animals on Tuesday afternoon. A few members of the team donned some props, grabbed a dog and posed for some pictures as part of a calendar that will raise money for Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

The non-profit organization rescues dogs and cats from high-kill animal shelters and overburdened owners, and places them in homes around Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

Check out Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green, Karl Alzner, and Braden Holtby posing with their furry friends in the photos below.
