After the injuries the Caps have faced this season and with Poti still out, I have no sympathy for the Bruins.

This is a big game. No doubt. If the Caps are to catch Boston for the 1 seed, they must win this one.

pick a stick night for people who are going (65 bucks and you get a random autographed stick).



I've gotten lucky in the past, but won't be there tonight to participate. i guess since I got an Ovey, I should be barred for life. Especially when last time I made a joke about a guy getting an Erskine and what does he pull but one of those.

We beat Boston earlier this year with a lot of injuries. Good way of showing faith in your team.

have fun trying to get to the game tonight folks.

And yes, this game has been sold out for months. Most of the rest of the season is sold out.

I've already been thru this with CC2010 who was very upset to hear Mason was not playing vs the Caps last week. Then he did.

Which is better? No Kessel and the Caps win or Kessel-2 goals & Caps lose? I can watch Kessel on Center Ice anytime I want. I choose Caps win

Nothing is free at the Verizon center. I hear they're considering installing pay toilets.

The important part - nice sightlines, great level for watching hockey; even when sold out, a bit easier to get around on that level; IF your friend had and gave you the coupon, you can get a program ($2) for free at the desk on that level; if the Acela Club symbol is on the tickets, you can get into the Acela Club, but after that, $$$. And if the tickets were free, don't get greedy and enjoy the game

seems bruce had a sit down with quick question karl, whose play has apparently suffered due to an impending fear of being sent back down. good psychology from bruce.
