The Washington Capitals are hosting Black History Night tonight against the Ottawa Senators and it'll be epic. So epic that each fan will receive a rally towel as every Capitals game has felt like a playoff game based on where they are in the standings.

Per the Capitals press release, tonight will "honor Black achievement in hockey and highlight how the organization is looking to further grow the game". The rally towel you will receive if you have tickets tonight will be black and feature the Capitals 11 Black alumni which was designed by local artist Robert Generette III aka Rob Zilla.

Zilla also designed the Black history jerseys that the players will don at warmups and the proceeds from that will benefit the MSE Foundation. Here's more info from the Caps:

""A pre-game celebration at District E will feature music by First Sunday. First Sunday (formerly The Unknowns) began their musical journey in 2016 on the street corners of Washington, D.C. With consistency, hard work, and dedication, opportunities opened for them to travel across the nation and impact lives through their music. Their mission is to uplift every listener with their unique blend of modern and soulful sounds.

The second intermission will feature the Tucker Road Ducks of Prince George’s County, Md., while in-game content will highlight the Capitals Rising Stars program, the Capitals Celebrating Black History Fundraiser artists, and Black history in hockey.

The evening will also highlight “Caps 11,” an original song that the Capitals and musical artist Saukrates collaborated on that is dedicated to honoring the 11 Black alumni in Capitals history. A special on-ice projection will highlight Caps 11 in conjunction with the song.""
