The pants feature a new contemporary “W” with three stars of the city flag, which also serves as a subtle nod to the Washington monument.

“I’m counting down the days! I think it’s a unique venue and possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Caps play in Annapolis,”McGill said. “I think the tailgate, the stadium and the entire atmosphere is going to be phenomenal. Hopefully, it snows!”

“This game should bring a lot of people from outside the area to Annapolis and that’s great for local businesses,” Beall said. “I think the Navy stadium is going to be a good place to watch outside hockey. Tickets are a bit pricey,
