Southwest D.C. is worse, Nats stadium has cleaned up the SE to a degree.

Sure, the Anacostia part of SE is still sketchy (but is changing slowly), but the Capitol Hill/Navy Yard part of SE has changed a lot and is filled with young families. I love living in SE.

The Southeast he's referring to is on the other side of South Capitol Street Bridge from Nats Stadium. You know across the Anacostia River aka Ward 7 and 8. That side of the River whether NE or SE is not as bad as it once was, but I still would not venture over there.

Just a few pockets of government housing remain in Southwest DC. They would have been removed by now if not for the economy dip these past few years. The stadium and the Navy Yard - Government offices has contributed to a major change over along the M Street corridor this past decade. I would look to see that resume along M Street west of South Capitol over the next five years.

The only hope for some areas of SE is those near St. Elizabeth Hospital. If that ever does become the location for Homeland Security HQ and other government installations/offices similar to the Navy Yard, it might help to change that area somewhat but I don't think we'll see any significant changes to that side of the river for some time.

The area west of Nats Park towards Arena Stage? You mean the $500,000+ condo valley? That area is dangerous?

I think a lot of Caps fan due to Kovalchuk and liking Russian players will like the Devils though.

Rangers fans on mainboard GDT saying Prudential is too quiet.

All 4 games against the Caps in MSG, MSG was pretty quiet. The loudest I have ever heard MSG wasn't even respectable and it was after they were called out after game 3 for being pathetically quiet.

Kings look and play big. Brown is a solid dude, like his game a lot.

Could we have beaten NJ? Im too bitter to watch any games, but we WERE 1 Panthers Overtime loss away from playing them in the 1st round, which is what a lot of people wanted.

They almost lost to those Panthers... get them before the mometum kicked in, before Marty started playing well? Who knows.

I've never been to Detroit, but for the DC half of that.

Edit: Maybe areas of DC are sketchy, but I don't think anyone working a decent job (certainly not a hockey player) has any reason to even see those areas once no matter how long they live there.

Every city has its bad parts.

Oh come on you pretend like this is like In Time. Couple years back there was a string of carjackings in the nicer areas, add on the fact DC is run by gun grabbers there's nothing you can do to protect yourself.

Could have used more back pressure from Zubie.

Least I got home in time for OT. What a break down by NJ and great move by Kopitar. Surprised Marty didn't go for the sneak attack poke check.

I think that might be the first time I've heard Kopitar speak. How long has his English been that good?

The "family" line is hockeyspeak for "I'm not going to Edmonton."

The risk that comes with being in a big city is nothing comparing to the money these guys make. If they actually feared poor people in their proximity they would have gotten into something worthless like lacrosse.
