40 miles northeast of the Washington DC, the Baltimore Ravens showed support to the Capitals by lighting M&T Bank Stadium up red.
The Ravens made the gesture Monday night after the Caps jumped out to a 3-0 lead against the Vegas Golden Knights. The Caps now lead the series 3-1 and look to win the Stanley Cup Thursday in Las Vegas.
“We turned M&T Bank Stadium red as Baltimore cheers you on,” the Ravens Twitter account wrote. “Finish strong!”
Amazing start tonight, @Capitals.
