The Washington Capitals may be on the road for Game 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but that doesn't mean D.C. fans can't watch at Capital One Arena.

The team announced Tuesday they will be hosting a free viewing party Wednesday where fans can watch the conclusion of the NHL's Eastern Conference Finals on the jumbotron. In a do-or-die situation, the Caps kept their Stanley Cup hopes alive in a 3-0 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning Monday night to even the playoff series at 3-3.

Two goals from T.J. Oshie fueled the win and set up what should be a dramatic Game 7 finish.

Fans can enter the arena at 7 p.m. at the entrance on F Street. The party will feature Capitals alumni, the team's mascot, Slapshot, and dancers, the Red Rockers, as well as other local personalities. Fans can also buy 25 percent off playoff merchandise at the team store.

The puck drops Wednesday at 8 p.m.
