In the Eastern Final this year, as the home team, Toronto wore their dark blue home jersey. However, instead of the typical white road jersey, Winnipeg wore their dark gold alternates.
I thought before that one team had to wear white each game. I noticed the same thing happen last year.
Does this mean that as long as the colours aren't a near match (like B.C. wearing their black jerseys at the same time Hamilton wears their black home one) that both teams can wear coloured uniforms at a time? Why doesn't this happen more often then? White uniforms can get a little boring after a while, because they take away the distinctiveness of some teams. It would also give teams to showcase their alternate jerseys on TV more often.
