Once more into the breach

Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers
March 30, 2016 | Wells Fargo Center | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

There weren’t any photos from this trip. It was a scoreless game until Alex Ovechkin rocketed one past the Flyers goalie early in the 3rd period. Brayden Schenn would tie it up for the home team with a little over five minutes left in the period. Nothing happened in overtime, but the Flyers were able to best the Caps in a shootout. The final score was 2-1, Flyers.


Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Philadelphia, PA for a weeknight match at the Wells Fargo Center. We will be heading up I-95 to cheer on the Caps as they take on one of our longtime rivals, the Flyers, at 8:00 pm.

We have acquired lower level seats for this game and the late start gives us plenty of time to get there.

We have acquired good lower bowl seats in Section 106 for a steal at only $100 each. No extra fees over the cost of the ticket will be charged. While optional, we hope all Caps fans in attendance will join us for warmups along the glass in Section 103 at 7 pm!

The Crew's perfect streak continues against the Baby Pens

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at Hershey Bears
March 5, 2016 | Giant Center | Hershey, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

The Roadies who travelled for this game were treated to a fairly one-sided tilt against long-time Bears rivals the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins. After our regular stop at the Bears’ Den at the Hershey Lodge, the high-scoring affair was the perfect cap to a fun day!


Trip Itinerary

We will be hitting the road by bus to the Giant Center to cheer on the Hershey Bears as they take on the Baby Pens.

A shootout win for the Caps courtesy of the Great Eight

Washington Capitals at New Jersey Devils
February 6, 2016 | Prudential Center | Newark, New Jersey
Bus Trip

Our annual trip to the Garden State was a good one this year! We had enough time for a leisurely ride before being treated to a pretty evenly matched game. The score was tied through sixty minutes, and overtime wasn’t enough to determing the victor. But Alex Ovechkin’s third round shootout goal on Corey Schneider clinched the win for the Caps.

Ovi's OT heroics stun the MSG crowd

Washington Capitals at New York Rangers
January 9, 2016 | Madison Square Garden | New York, New York
Bus Trip

This season’s visit to the Garden was a doozy! Instead of our usual spot near the back of the lower bowl, we were able to acquire a suite upstairs, complete with snacks and drinks. We had plenty of seating for our group and our own private restroom, meaning we didn’t have to brave the madness of the concourses in the World’s Most Popular Arena. Add to that a stunning third period buzzer beater by Nicklas Backstrom to force overtime, and a game winner by Alex Ovechkin to push him that much closer to his 500th NHL goal, and it made for a very fun day!

The Caps put on a show for the traveling fans

Washington Capitals at New York Islanders
January 7, 2016 | Barclays Center | Brooklyn, New York

Our first trip to the Islanders’ new digs was interesting to say the least. It’s without a doubt the oddest building we’ve visited. It was built for NBA basketball and concert performances, before they knew the Islanders would move there. So the sight lines for hockey are less than ideal. Still, our seats were good and we saw the Caps dominate the home team to the tune of a 4-1 win.

A small group of Roadies ventured north of the border for a weekend in Toronto, Ontario, the center of the hockey universe!
