The Washington Capitals will celebrate Alex Ovechkin’s 700th goal in a special pregame ceremony tonight before the Winnipeg Jets. All fans in attendance will get a special Alex Ovechkin 700 jersey towel.
This morning, ahead of the game, the Capital One Arena staff laid those towels on every seat of the arena, spelling out OVI on one half of the lower bowl and 700 in the other.
It’s picturesque and beautiful; it’s a wonderful tribute.
