Capitals to wear and auction green warmup jerseys originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Fans may be used to seeing the Capitals rock the red, and occasionally blue and white to complete the American color set, but green is definitely a new look.

But that's exactly what Washington will be doing ahead of Friday's game against the Rangers. The Caps will be wearing special "Go Green" warmup jerseys to benefit Leveling the Playing Field.

The auction, which includes the limited edition autographed green jerseys, sticks wrapped with green tape and green Capitals pucks, is open now and will wrap up at 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 25 according to the team.

Leveling the Playing Field is an organization "focused on delivering the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports to underserved children," according to a statement released by the Capitals. Since 2013, LPF has distributed more than $7 million worth of equipment to more than 1,000 schools and youth programs in the Washington, D.C, and Baltimore, Md., regions."

The red-hot (green-hot?) Caps will face off with the Rangers at 7 p.m. on Friday night.
