The crew's final voyage to the Coliseum!

Washington Capitals at New York Islanders
April 5, 2014 | Nassau Coliseum | Long Island, New York

For our last CRC game of the season it was fitting that we bid adieu to the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum, home of the New York Islanders since the team’s inception. Many of the same roadies who had traveled to The Rock the previous night joined us this afternoon. We had a decent tailgate going despite high winds, and the Caps treated us to a shootout win.

Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Long Island to visit the storied Veterans Memorial Coliseum as the Caps take on the Islanders at 5:00 PM on Saturday, April 5, 2014.

The CRC has made arrangements for lower bowl group tickets, however individual transportation and lodging arrangements will be up to those attending.

Current plans: On Saturday, April 5th, the Crew will gather in Uniondale inside the Coliseum around 4:30 PM for warmups and the 5:00 PM drop of the puck. At this time we will be accepting reservations for the package ticket(s) to both the New Jersey and Long Island games (see details for the NJ end of the trip). 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 $90 per ticket for the LI game (the NJ tickets are $85, for a total of $175 for the package). Payment in full is required to reserve your tickets. No extra fees over the cost of the ticket will be charged. Info about the optional pregame happy hour get-together will be made available to guests or to others upon request.

Be sure to get your reservation in asap to guarantee your spot alongside the other Caps fans making the trip. The Islanders have set us up with lower bowl seats and we are excited to catch one last game in Uniondale before the team heads to Brooklyn.
