According to NHL insider Chris Johnston of Sportsnet “more than half” of the NHL’s 31 arenas will participate in #LightItBlue this evening, a show of support for healthcare workers and essential workers on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.

It’s not certain which arenas will be participating, but it’s likely only those that have exterior color lighting systems.

The City of Vancouver was the first NHL city to show regular daily appreciation of healthcare workers. At 7:00 PM each evening, residents move to their balconies or front steps to salute healthcare professionals with cheers and applause, a movement of unity in trying times.
