Maple Leafs, Capitals play outdoors at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland
Enjoy the game
...and the Caps just scored!
1-1 now :)
And then, as they often do, the Caps give up a goal within 90 seconds of scoring...
I really like the Maple Leaf’s uniforms... Alex O
Wow. Now its 2-1 Caps at 5:19 in to the game.
I hope it is a high scoring game
Did defense take the night off?
It will probably settle down in 2nd period.
Ovechkin will end up with over a 1000 goals.
Nice night for hockey. @NHL @NHLNetwork @Capitals[image at link]
Wish he was on my team.
I know right, I feel the same way.
There was an article on them in the local Toronto paper in that the blue on mostly white uni is to honour the naval flag on Canadian ships. First time ever the Maple Leafs have worn such a uniform.
Wouldn't that be quite a lot for a hockey game ?
I think they look great and if it honors their Navy even better. I suppose it makes sense considering where the game is being played.
I love the outdoor arena, but the lighting looks down-right weird.
I am not sure but I think these uniforms are a one time thing for this game only but who knows maybe if enough like them they may be used again. The article I mentioned said some players said they found them very cool. They had practiced in them to get used to them for this game.
I noticed that to. The lighting is not as spread out like it is in other stadiums.
All of the teams have a special uniforms for these games. It is a one off.
I guess it’s just the camera position, but that rink looks smaller than normal, especially the width.
