A rested Capitals squad came into New York hungry for a win. A goal by Sergei Gonchar and two in a row by Adam Oates opened up a high flying affair, including a hat trick by Isles winger Mariusz Czerkawski. The tilt ended in a 5-5 stalemate.

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Long Island to watch the Caps battle the New York Islanders and their newest acquisitions Alexei Yashin and Michael Peca at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum (aka the Mausoleum) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 at 7 pm.
The CRC will make arrangements for group tickets, however individual transportation and lodging arrangements will be up to anyone attending.
Current plans- A contingent of the Crew will be driving from Montreal to Long Island by car on Tuesday, November 27. The Crew plans to arrive on Long Island around 4:00 pm and grab something to eat before heading to the “Mausoleum” where the Crew will meet up by the main ticket/box office entrance at 6:00 pm. We’ll head inside by 6:15 pm for warmups and the 7 pm drop of the puck. The Crew will return to the Washington D.C. area immediately following the game (expected arrival back in D.C. by 2 am).
Ticket requests (to sit with the CRC) must be placed by Friday, September 28, 2001 at noon to be guaranteed a spot.
