The Caps were skating on the second half of a back-to-back this evening and it showed. Matt Pettinger opened the scoring in the 1st period but the home team answered with three in a row in the 2nd period, followed by a late Peter Bondra tally. The 3rd brought two more by the Habs, while a single Jagr goal in between them was not enough. The Caps went on to Long island having lost the game 5-3.
There are no photos from this trip.
The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Montreal to watch the Caps battle ex-Caps Richard Zednik, Jan Bulis and Joe Juneau and the rest of the legendary Canadiens franchise at the enormous Molson Centre on Saturday, November 24, 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 up to Montreal by car on Friday, November 23. The Crew plans to arrive in Montreal around 5:00 pm, check into the hotel and find a bar to watch the Caps/Rangers game at MCI on satellite. After some sightseeing in historic Montreal on Saturday, the Crew will meet up outside the Molson Centre (by the main entrance next to the team store) at 5:30 pm. We’ll check out the team store (and bar areas) and then head inside by 6:15 pm for warmups and the 7 pm drop of the puck on Hockey Night in Canada! The Crew will stay in Montreal Sunday and Monday, combining sightseeing, excellent cuisine and attending a Montreal team practice before leaving Montreal on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 27. The Crew will travel from Montreal to Long Island for the second stop on the combo trip.
Ticket requests (to sit with the CRC) must be placed by Friday, August 31, 2001 at noon to be guaranteed a spot.
