Capitals brought puppies to the press box

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Capitals made Monday’s tilt with the Vegas Golden Knights one to remember, as they teamed up with Wolf Trap Animal Rescue and Pedigree Foundation for Caps Canine Night.

The night paid tribute to the greatest animals on Earth during a game featuring the greatest sport on Earth. Washington sold exclusive Caps & Canines t-shirts during the game, with proceeds benefitting the Pedigree Foundation.

Players also warmed up in front of cardboard cutouts of their dogs, and the Hero’s Welcome honored veterans and their service dogs.
