The Washington Capitals visited children at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Monday and the pictures will melt your heart.

The players took part in a photo shoot with patients and their families as part of Flashes of Hope, a nonprofit whose mission is to change the way children with cancer and life-threatening conditions see themselves through photography, per Capitals Outsider

Alex Ovechkin brought a whole mess of balloons and his trademark smile.

One young patient took some serious cuts with Devante Smith-Pelly. 

Evgeny Kuznetsov helped a new friend with a bit of drawing and a little math. 

Defensemen John Carlson and Jonas Siegenthaler and goaltender Pheonix Copley helped some kids build a tremendous gingerbread house.

Carlson explained what it means to the Caps to visit the brave kids.

Truly a wonderful gesture by the Capitals.
