  • Capitals star Alex Ovechkin did not take part in his team’s Pride Night celebration, held in partnership with Giant Food.
  • The Capitals did not choose such a powerful statement as having their players wear Pride-themed jerseys. That would have made the absence of Ovechkin stand out for all the world to see – like Ivan Provorov’s refusal did.
  • The Capitals went the route of giving their players the option of wrapping their pregame warmup sticks in Pride rainbow tape, as they have in past years.
