On Saturday night, the Capitals will partake in their second game of the season and their first at home as they host Karl Alzner and the Montreal Canadiens. While the puck drop for the game itself isn’t until 7 p.m., fans can take part in what has become an annual tradition outside of the building on F Street

For the third year in a row, the Capitals will host a “Rock the Red carpet” event where all Capitals players will arrive to Capital One Arena via a Lexus automobile with preselected fans. Once they arrive, players will stop to sign autographs and take pictures with the fans on their way into the arena. The event will take place from 3:30-5 p.m.

The Washington Capitals will host Rock the Red Carpet on F Street in front of Capital One Arena from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7, prior to the Capitals Opening Night presented by GEICO. The Capitals open the 2017-18 season presented by Capital One Bank by hosting the Montreal Canadiens at 7 p.m. that evening.

The Capitals 2017-18 team will begin arriving in cars provided by Lexus on F Street, between 6th and 7th street NW, at approximately 3:30 p.m. They will be introduced and escorted by preselected fans down the red carpet. Upon arrival players will greet fans and pose for pictures.

The event will be live streamed by NBC Sports Washington.
