Capitals Set To Host Outdoor Viewing Party For Season Opener
The Capitals will "raise their first Stanley Cup championship banner in franchise history before Wednesday’s season opener," and fans without tickets to the game are "invited to partake in the celebration from just outside Capital One Arena," according to Scott Allen of the WASHINGTON POST. The banner-raising ceremony and game against the Bruins will be "broadcast on the video board located on the G Street side of the arena." Wednesday’s event "ensures that there will be an audience of people rocking the red during 'NHL Live,' NBC Sports' pregame show, which will broadcast from outside Capital One Arena" starting at 6:00pm ET. As of Friday morning, the "cheapest tickets for Wednesday’s game on the secondary market started around $120" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 9/28).
