After giving out bracelets in the first round of the playoffs, the Caps kicked it up a notch with branded styrofoam tubes for Game One of the Penguins series. The tubes lit up red when activated.
At first the giveaway seemed strange. Caps superfan Goat joked on Instagram that it was “Light-Up Miniature Pool Noodle Night’ at VERIZON CENTER!” But they were stunning. It looked like a pulsating sea of red.
