Flyers' Carter Hart, Union Provide Heartwarming Night With McCabe Family

Carter Hart made plenty of big saves Wednesday night as he stopped 35 shots in the Flyers' 2-1 shootout loss to the NHL-leading Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center.

Thanks to an awesome drawing, the beautiful memory of Lucy McCabe and the 21-year-old goalie, his most meaningful moment Wednesday night came after the game.

Through the Union's "Kick Childhood Cancer" initiative, Hart was connected with 6-year-old Molly McCabe, who lost her 3-year-old sister Lucy to cancer on Sept. 17.

Hart and the Flyers invited the McCabe family to Wednesday night's game. They all met and spent time together afterward.

It was just nice to go and say hi after the game," Hart said Thursday, via Flyers senior director of public relations and communications Zack Hill. "It wasn't the result we wanted in the game, but you know what, it was the daughter's first NHL game, she went to her first hockey game, and she was very happy and smiling after. I mean, that's what it's about. You go in there after the game, you see them and how happy she is, how happy the family was to meet myself and then come in the locker room after - that just puts a smile on my face and I'm very happy to do that.

What an amazing job by everyone.
