Washington Capitals at Florida Panthers
February 27, 2004 | Office Depot Center | Sunrise, Florida

"When it’s cold up north, that’s when I head south!" – Grand Funk Railroad.

The CapsRoadCrew took off in February for the warmer climes of Florida for a two-game trip. The first stop was the Panthers’ lair. The Crew also checked out Baltimore Orioles spring training at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. It was a great trip with the Caps bringing it and winning it 4-1 before heading to Tampa.

Trip Itinerary

The CapsRoadCrew will be traveling to Florida to watch the Caps battle Olli Jokinen, Jay Bouwmeester and a young and hungry Panthers team at the Office Depot Center on Friday, February 27, 2004 at 7:30pm…

The CRC will make arrangements for group tickets, however individual transportation and lodging arrangements will be up to anyone attending.

Current plans: Members of the Crew will gather in Florida on Friday, February 27 inside the Office Depot Center around 6:30pm for warmups and the 7:30pm drop of the puck. Most of the Crew will likely stay the night in the Fort Lauderdale area before moving on to Tampa. On Saturday, February 28, the Crew will travel from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa for the second stop on the combo trip (see details for the Tampa Bay end of the trip). At this time we will be accepting reservations for the package ticket(s) to both the Florida and Tampa Bay games. If we are able to accomodate those wishing tickets to just one or the other we will try, but cannot guarantee anything at present.

The cost will be $40 per ticket for the Florida game (the Tampa Bay tickets are $59, for a total of $99 for the package). Payment in full is required to reserve your tickets. We have 30 tickets in our block. This trip is now sold out! A waiting list has been established in case any last minute openings become available.and they will go quickly!
