When the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Oct. 13, they will raise money for the families of the 28 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl players who died in last month's plane crash.
The game could feature two of the NHL's top stars - Washington's Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, who is injured - and will raise money through the sale of jerseys and bracelets.
The Capitals will sell remembrance bracelets Friday and the Penguins will sell them the day of their home game against Washington.
In that game, both teams will wear jerseys with commemorative patches. After the game, the players will sign their jerseys, which will be put up for auction on NHL.com.
The proceeds will go to the families of the 28 players on Lokomotiv, a Russian team whose plane crashed in western Russia on Sept. 7. Brad McCrimmon, Pavol Demitra and Ruslan Salei were among the former NHL players killed in the crash.
