One more look at the Bears on St. Patty's weekend

Bridgeport Sound Tigers at Hershey Bears
March 16, 2019 | Giant Center | Hershey, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

No one does holidays quite like the AHL. From special event nights to themed custom jerseys, the NHL’s farm league makes every occasion noteworthy, and the Bears are no exception! In addition to St. Patrick’s Day, this night was also Autism Awareness Night. Hosting the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the NY Islanders’ affiliate, the Hershey squad came through to keep the Crew’s unbeaten streak at Giant Center intact! The final score of 5-1 brought a joyous end to our trip season.


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 Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower level group tickets. (A very limited number of tickets aside from those with bus transportation are available at this time.)

We’ll have a pickup in northern Virginia at Springfield Metro station at 12:30 p.m. and one in Maryland at the Shady Grove Metro station (off I-270 & ICC) at approximately 1:00 p.m. We should arrive in Hershey by 3:30 pm for lunch at the Bear’s Den in the Hershey Lodge before heading over to the arena at 6 p.m. to catch warmups before the 7 p.m. drop of the puck. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area as soon as possible following the game (expected arrival back at Shady Grove around midnight and Springfield Metro around 12:30 a.m.). Paid parking is available at both Metro stations and while the Metro will be open at the time for our departure, constantly changing WMATA schedules make their operation when we return questionable so plan accordingly. We are happy to assist with carpooling for those who need it.

All of our available spaces that include bus transportation will be $65 per person. No extra fees or money over the cost of the bus and game tickets will be charged. You may bring your own food and drink on the bus (coolers will be provided for your convenience). There is no smoking allowed on the bus and time constraints will most likely prevent us from making any stops on the way. The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/tv units.

Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your spot on the CRC bus! A reservation should be considered a firm commitment as it will be used to finalize others’ reservations. We will have space and tickets available for 55 people.

Late January brought our first of two trips to the chocolate capital of the free world this season. The Hershey Bears hosted the Montreal Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket.

The Motor City team dies at the side of the Road

Washington Capitals at Detroit Red Wings
January 6, 2019 | Little Caesars Arena | Detroit, Michigan

Our first trip of the new year brought the Crew to Hockeytown for a Sunday evening game against the Red Wings. Roadies enjoyed a spirited pregame gathering at Harry’s, a bar only a block from Little Caesars Arena. The struggling Caps took an early lead but soon fell behind. No matter, as they snapped their three-game losing skid with a go-ahead goal in the waning minutes of the third period to beat the home team 3-2.

We kicked off our championship season by visiting the home of the Columbus Blue Jackets, the first team the Caps eliminated from the Playoffs on their way to the promised land. We began our day as guests of Nationwide Arena for the Caps’ game-day skate, followed by Happy Hour at the best hockey bar in North America, R Bar Arena.

Our triumphant return to the Coliseum!

Washington Capitals at New York Islanders
March 1, 2019 | Nassau Coliseum | Long Island, New York

This season marked the Crew’s return to a building we thought we’d never see again, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Due to NHL ticket sales at Barclay Center being lackluster, a limited number of New York Islanders home games were played at the old barn, which underwent a major renovation. Now part of NYCB Live, the Coliseum has had new life breathed into it. This would not help the home team, who fell to the Caps 3-1.


Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Long Island to visit the remodeled Nassau Coliseum as the Caps take on the Islanders at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019. The Isles are playing limited dates in their old barn and we are delighted that a Caps game is among them.

If we are able to accommodate those wishing tickets to just one or the other we will try, but cannot guarantee anything at present.
