A brief break from actual news for an important uniform update: The Caps will again add a third jersey for seven road games this season.

The white jerseys resemble the team’s original sweater, worn from 1974-75 through 1994-95, and recreated for the 2011 Winter Classic in Pittsburgh (the Caps also wore the jerseys for several road games last season). They have the original Capitals wordmark with six stars above it and five stars beneath the numbers on each sleeve.

The Caps will wear red pants and white helmets with the jerseys. No word, however, on whether they’ll switch up the sock colors.

Here are the dates the Caps will go retro:

Saturday, March 16 at Boston Bruins 1 p.m. CSN
Tuesday, March 19 at Pittsburgh Penguins 7:30 p.m. CSN
Thursday, March 21 at Winnipeg Jets 8 p.m. CSN
Friday, March 22 at Winnipeg Jets 7 p.m. CSN
Sunday, March 24 at New York Rangers 7 p.m. NBCSN
Thursday, April 18 at Ottawa Senators 7:30 p.m. CSN
Saturday, April 20 at Montreal Canadiens 7 p.m. CSN
