The stakes were high for the Wizards heading into Game 6 facing elimination by the Celtics. In addition to their fans in the Verizon Center crowd, they got support from fellow Washington athletes. 

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and Nationals Gio Gonzalez, Anthony Rendon and Brian Goodwin were all on hand Friday night. 

The Capitals were eliminated by the Penguins in Game 7 this Wednesday. Though Ovechkin is suffering from a painful-looking hamstring bruise, he didn't miss a chance to cheer on Washington's other team in the playoffs.

The Nationals took advantage of an unanticipated night off as rain forced their game against the Phillies to be rescheduled for a later date.
