WASHINGTON -- In the two games Bryce Harper has played at Nationals Park, the average attendance is 19,475.
Harper believes the NHL's Washington Capitals is the reason the Nationals haven't had sellout crowds. The Capitals are currently in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers.
"The Caps are playing right now and they are doing well," Harper said. "Once the Caps win, [the fans] will be back out here. Hopefully, the Caps win it [all] and the fans will come back out to us in our stadium."
