Young Fan's frown turned upside down by player

ABOVE VIDEO: The third time is a charm for a young hockey fan as Washington Capitals player Brett Connolly spots a young girl in the first row and tries to make her day with his first two attempts to give her a puck before finally finding success.  

(CBS SPORTS) – As a young sports fan, the joy of getting a souvenir at a sporting event is sometimes overwhelming. It’s one of the most desirable outcomes from a night at the stadium or arena, so narrowly missing out on that opportunity can be heartbreaking.

It looked like a little girl at Sunday’s Capitals-Blue Jackets playoff game might have to endure such a heartbreak in pregame warmups, but persistence and determination from Washington’s Brett Connolly led to a happy ending.

Prior to Game 2, Connolly was warming up when he spotted the young Caps fan in the first row.

The winger decided to make her day by tossing her a puck over the glass. Or at least he tried.
