Capitals

The Capitals unveiled their jerseys for the 2015 Bridgestone Winter Classic, but the team and NHL held back on any secondary event announcements.
The Capitals will be rocking a deeper, richer red when they lace 'em up at National Park on Jan. 1.
Capitals owner Ted Leonsis has been campaigning for the Winter Classic for more than six years. In 100 days he will get his desired game.
