Hockey stars grant terminally-ill boy’s wish

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A terminally-ill Canadian boy got to hang out with his sports hero and take part in a ceremonial puck drop.  The NHL’s Washington Capitals granted Braden Neinaber's wish during their game with the Buffalo Sabres.

Braden got to hang out with Capitals goalie Braden Holtby who shares the same first name.

And later the puck drop took an unexpected turn when Braden threw Sabres Captain Steve Ott out of the face-off.  Ott was a good sport and played along.
