We wrap up the season in suite style!

Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers
March 22, 2011 | Wachovia Center | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

The Caps’ final meeting of the season against the Flyers was our first visit to the renamed Wells Fargo Center. The suite had been moved to the exact opposite corner of the arena, but the open bar and buffet were still awesome. After going up three goals and forcing the removal of starting netminder Sergei Bobrovski, the Caps allowed four unanswered before tying in the final minutes of regulation. Overtime wasn’t enough to end the game, but when Alexander Semin scored on his third shootout attempt he sent the Roadies into jubilation!


Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Philadelphia, PA for a rare midweek visit to Wachovia Center.

We will be hitting the road by bus to the Wells Fargo Center to cheer on the Caps as they take on our longtime conference rival, the Flyers, at 7:30 pm. We have acquired club level suite seats for this game (the same we had for the last two seasons) and with the Flyers treating us to an open bar and buffet, tailgating will not be necessary.

Here’a a 360ยบ view of the suite.
This is the view of the ice from the suite.
This is one of our most unique trips and has become a popular annual destination for Caps fans. The Flyers front office always arranges for some exciting perks for our group and those they are working on for this game sound like a blast also.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and group tickets. We also have a VERY limited number of extra tickets to the game. If you don’t require bus transportation, are a DC area Caps fan, and would like to join the group, please email us ASAP at info@capsroadcrew.com to make arrangements.

The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area as soon as possible following the game (expected arrival back in Greenbelt around 12 a.m.).

Our seats are excellent and with bus transportation, the cost for the trip will be $225 per person, the same as last season ($235 after 1/1/11).

Our return to the Mausoleum!

Washington Capitals at New York Islanders
February 26, 2011 | Nassau Coliseum | Long Island, New York
Bus Trip

Two buses of Roadies headed up I-95 to New York for a tilt between the Capitals and the Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum. After a brief happy hour at Doolin’s Pub we headed down for warmups, where Matt Hendricks gave us a stick tap as he skated by. A sloppy start gave the Isles a lead, but it was erased by 3 unanswered Caps goals, which gave the visitors the win.

The Crew spent the first day of the All-Star weekend visiting the Caps farm team in Hershey as the Bears met with the Canes’ minor squad, the Charlotte Checkers. First we rode to the Hershey Lodge for the obligatory pregame happy hour at the Bears’ Den. The game itself was a goalie battle royale, ending with the hometown Bears squeaking out a 1-0 win with a goal in the 3rd period. Braden Holtby’s shutout made it a day to remember!

Our Hockey Tonk weekend!

Washington Capitals at Nashville Predators
October 16, 2010 | Bridgestone Arena | Nashville, Tennessee

It was our maiden voyage to Music City and an enjoyable time was had by all. While the local culture and flavor provided some unique experiences, the game began feeling somewhat familiar. The home team was off to a great start against the guys in Caps sweaters, but DC’s hockey club had some surprises for the Roadies who made the trip.
