The Caps Road Crew got up really early in the morning so we could catch the bus to the Garden State for a matinee against the red-clad Devils. We had breakfast covered as the Crew faithful amassed a spread including numerous types of bagels and spreads, donuts, muffins, pastries, coffee, OJ, chips, and a case of bananas. Bellies full and ready for our trip into Continental Airlines Arena for the last time, the Crew descended on the half empty forum for an afternoon of great Caps hockey. Brent Johnson backstopped a 4-2 victory for the Caps, the first one in New Jersey since March 29, 2002.

The Garden State hosts the Washington Capitals as they take on the Devils at Continental Airlines Arena in possibly the last season of its existence. The Meadowlands will be treated to the awe-inspiring play of Alex Ovechkin and the rest of the good guys as they try yet again to break through the ever popular Devils’ trap defense.
Current plans: The Crew will be meeting at Springfield Mall (just off I-95 in Springfield, VA) at 7:00 am on Saturday the 24th and the bus will leave no later than 7:30 am. En route we will make a stop at the Forest Glen Metro on the Red Line in Silver Spring (Beltway exit 31A) at approximately 8:00 am. Be sure to drink your coffee! We’ll arrive in New Jersey around noon with plenty of time to make our presence known at warmups before the 1:00 pm opening faceoff. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area immediately following the game (expected arrival back in D.C. by 8:00 pm).
The cost of the trip is $80 per person (includes mezzanine level ticket and transportation). 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. In keeping with RoadCrew policy, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Ticket arrangements have been made and reservations are filling up fast. Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your spot on the CRC Bus! A reservation should be considered a firm commitment and a deposit may be required. Approximately 40 spaces are available.
