SEE IT: Nats cutouts in stands for Capitals home opener originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

As the Washington Capitals host the Buffalo Sabres in their home opener on Friday night, no fans will be in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, the team is getting creative when it comes to packing the stands.

The likes of 'Cobra Kai' will be there in cutout form, as will some members of the Washington Nationals

The Nationals have added cutouts of Trea Turner, Juan Soto, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Davey Martinez to the seats in Capital One Arena.

Washington's baseball and hockey teams have a strong relationship that dates back to when the Capitals took home the Stanley Cup in 2018. Ryan Zimmerman and Scherzer were there during the Cup run to support the team, and Alexander Ovechkin and company had plenty of fun when celebrating the championship at Nationals Park. 

When it was the Nationals turn to make a title run in 2019, the Capitals returned the favor by becoming one of the most vocal cheering factions. As Washington took down the Houston Astros, the Capitals partied like it was 2018 all over again.

Therefore, it only makes sense that the Nationals would send some cutouts to the arena to show support for the Capitals' 2021 campaign.

The Nationals won't be the only D.C. team represented at home hockey games this season, as the Washington Football Team, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and D.C. United will also have cutouts in the stands. 

Of course, the fan experience wouldn't truly be complete without featuring the goodest boy: the Capitals' team dog, Captain.
