Washington Capitals Chatter

Postby Skins-R-Us » Thu Jan 21, 2016 9:20 am

With the Capitals in 1st place, we definitely need a topic. First place in record, goals per game, goals against and Power play percentage! Could this be the year? Gotta watch those pesky Blackhawks though.

i am not a hockey fan,but my son is and we watched the game that ovechekin scored his 500 and 501st goals together. i know nothing about the game or the rules,but he started watching hockey before he started watching baseball or hockey.

I am in the same boat. I have been to one Orlando Solar Bears game and it was definitely better live than watching on TV. I think I need to start watching a little closer and learn a little more since we actually have a team!

The Capitals have put together a powerhouse team that is now favored to win the Stanley Cup. They have a great roster...Offense, Defense, Goalie and coach. If there was ever a time for A Washington sports fan to start watching hockey, this would be a good one.

Channeling my inner BigCapitalsFan1963, I gotta say I'll be shocked if this series ends any other way than the Caps losing 4-1. Damn, I hate the Penguins.

I'm glad the Caps pulled it out, but I hate OT playoff hockey, and jeez, the Penguins again? Barf.

Bring on the Pens, no time like the present to exorcise some demons. I'm a much bigger football fan than I am a hockey fan, but I think I have more hate for the Pens than I do the Cowboys simply because they have owned the Caps for so long. It's time for that bull$h!t to end. Rock the Red!

See you next year, if they manage to get out of the first round and lose to the Pens again.

Would you believe it's another year, and the Caps are down 0-2 in the first round with two OT losses?

they're playing recklessly and it's killing them. The goalie issue will kill them this year eventually even if they get past the first round. Rinse and repeat.

Things are looking up; my cable was out yesterday, so I saw none of the game (kind of glad, lol). It is amazing how many overtime games the Caps play in the post season. They should just play 1 period sudden death games and get it over with quicker.

Well, they shocked me and pulled it out, very cool. Holtby returned to form and big boys stepped up and they produced. Deep breath, re-focus and FFS can we please eliminate the Pens!!!!!!

It's gotta be our time. I like the fact we are flying under the radar this year... not too much hype.

This is crazy.

According to the team's website, Capitals fans will not be allowed to wear red or anything with the team's logo if their seats are in the Lightning's Lexus Lounge, which includes seats against the glass, or in the Chase Club luxury suites. Instead, they will have to wear neutral colors.

Tickets for Capitals fans are already limited, since Tampa Bay will not allow anyone who doesn't reside in Florida to purchase a ticket through the team site or Ticketmaster.

“Orders by residents outside of Florida will be canceled without notice and refunds given,” the team said.

According to Lightning executive vice president of communications Bill Wickett, the measures are to enforce the representation of Lighting fans in the arena.

“It’s just an added measure to keep our building as blue as possible,” Wickett said
