Experience at the Verizon Center

Just got back. Been to dc several times to party but never to the Verizon Center. It was realllly loud. Louder than any Ranger playoff game I've been to this year and I've been to four games including game 7 against the sens. I was shocked to learn that they only have a max capacity of 300 more than MSG because the arena certainly looks more spacious and was really loud.

One thing I was surprised at was how empty all the bars were before the game. They only started to fill in about 2 hours before the game and even then none of the bars were even remotely close to being as packed as the puck, Molly wees, Stout, Irish times, harringtons or local are several hours before game time.

Crowd chants were really lame, all they did was lets go caps and boo Richards and staal whenever they touched the puck. They chanted lundddqvissssst when Hank misplayed the puck.

One thing I thought was cool was that during the anthem they yell red and O when those words come up during the anthem.

I hate the caps, glad i dont have to go there again. Also, if you ever get the chicken fingers, get them plain because they put wayyyyy too much sauce.

Nice arena overall.

Fans were for the most part very nice. One major difference I noticed was that everyone, even those in the lower level wore red on a weekday night game.
