My buddy and I happened to end up in a small group of NYR fans just by a happy coincidence. I'd imagine Saturday you'll get quite a few more though since its a weekend game - every weekend game I've been to you see way more blueshirts.

Caps fans are typically one of the classier fan bases out there and don't generally jeer or chirp away team fans. The worst you'll get from most of them are friendly digs at you, which are all in good fun. But of course, with any fanbase, you'll have the complete dbags who are either way too drunk or just enjoy going out of their way to try to start ****. If you just ignore them or brush em off, they're pretty harmless - and they are the exception. Other Caps fans often actually look down on that type of behavior and discourage it. Had several of them actually apologizing for some guy's behavior and saying stuff like "He doesn't know what hockey is all about."

If you're going Saturday, should be a good game and a good time.
In my experience it did not used to be this way. Caps fans used to be one of classless bases out there going out of there way to act like "Philly" fans in a kid-like manner.

I thought it sounded like there were 1000 or so Ranger fans, as I thought I heard some faint "Let's Go Rangers" chants.
