Before their matchup with the Blues on Thursday, the Washington Capitals took to the ice for warmups wearing digital camouflage jerseys, similar in appearance to the fatigues of the United States Marines and Army. The uniforms — later auctioned off with some proceeds befitting the charity “Our Military Kids” — were worn to honor the U.S. Armed Forces on “Salute to the Military Night”. A U.S. Army quartet preformed The Star Spangled Banner while veterans and current troops were acknowledged throughout game.
Photos from warmups are included after the jump.
