"Festivities on Saturday begin with the Power of Red Contest, in which an enormous block of ice will be placed near Clyde’s between Gallery Place and Verizon Center at 11 a.m. Fans can attempt to pull hockey sticks from the block of ice, and any successful fan will win a prize. Prizes include an executive suite for an upcoming Caps game, a team-signed jersey and a stick signed by reigning NHL most valuable player Alex Ovechkin.
Doors open for Saturday night’s game at 5:30 p.m., a half-hour ahead of the usual schedule. Fans will have a chance to see five trophies from the Hockey Hall of Fame: the Hart Trophy, Lester B. Pearson Award, Art Ross Trophy and Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy that Ovechkin won last season and the Jack Adams Award that Bruce Boudreau won as the league’s coach of the year. In addition, Capitals alumni including retired number honorees Rod Langway and Yvon Labre will be signing autographs on the concourse before the game, while ESPN 980 will be broadcasting live outside the arena."
