The Ottawa Senators and their fans paid tribute to more than 1,500 of Canada's military personnel during Canadian Forces Appreciation Night on Tuesday at Scotiabank Place.

"The Ottawa Senators are proud to recognize the Canadian Forces," says Roy Mlakar, president and chief executive officer of the Ottawa Senators. "We honour them for their dedication, passion and professionalism in the defence of this nation, both at home and abroad."

Featuring a 3-2 win over the visiting Washington Capitals, the evening's festivities kicked off with the national anthems sung by Lieutenant-Commander Gordon Thomson, accompanied by the 20 members of the Central Band of the Canadian Forces. General Rick Hillier, chief of the defence staff, along with Canadian Forces family members who began Wear Red Fridays - Karen Boire, Lisa Miller, Diane McCue and Debbie Potter - dropped the puck for the ceremonial faceoff between team captains Daniel Alfredsson of the Senators and Chris Clark of the Capitals.

Throughout the evening the Canadian Forces Combat Camera taped messages from Sens fans to the troops serving in Afghanistan. Also, several video messages from troops who are serving overseas were played on the Scotiabank Place videoboard during breaks in the game. The troops thanked Senators fans for their support and cheered on their team for a strong finish to the 2006-07 season.

On the ice, the Senators players all wore Support the Troops stickers on their helmets.

Fans leaving the game were given special Canadian Forces Appreciation Night pucks.
