Yesterday, the word going around was #Maythe4thbewithyou, as it was known as Star Wars day and the Washington Capitals decided to take full advantage of it.
Prior to puck drop in Game 3 against the New York Rangers in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Caps showed a Star Wars themed intro for the game at the Verizon Center. The video depicted in the iconic floating text how the series had gone to that point and how Game 3 would go.
It turns out the video worked, as Washington skated to a 1-0 victory and now lead the series 2-1. As the video predicted, “Blueshirts are wearing white, surrounded by a sea of RED.”
