Orange crush meets red scare!

Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers
December 5, 2009 | Wachovia Center | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

Two seasons after the CRC traveled to see Bruce Boudreau’s debut behind the Capitals’ bench in Philadelphia, we returned for the first game Peter Laviolette would coach for the Broad Street Bullies. He was disappointed, as we witnessed his team’s utter defeat from Suite 16. The Caps showed why they’re a force to be reckoned with (even with Alex Ovechkin out of the lineup), winning 8-2 over the foundering Fliers.

Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Philadelphia, PA to take a break from holiday shopping.

We will be hitting the road by bus to the Wachovia Center to cheer on the Caps as they take on our longtime conference rival, the Flyers, at 7 pm. We have acquired club level suite seats for this game (the same we had for the last two seasons) and with the Flyers treating us to an open bar and buffet, tailgating will not be necessary.

This is one of our most unique trips and has become a popular holiday gift idea for fellow Caps fans (Caps Road Crew gift certificates available). The Flyers front office always arranges for some exciting perks for our group and those they are working on for this game sound like a blast also.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and group tickets. We also have a VERY limited number of extra tickets to the game. If you don’t require bus transportation, are a DC area Caps fan, and would like to join the group, please email us ASAP at to make arrangements.

Current plans: The Crew will be meeting at Greenbelt metro station (inner loop of the beltway in Maryland at Exit 24) at 3 p.m. on December 5th; the bus will depart at approximately 3:15 p.m. We’ll arrive at the Wachovia Complex by 5:30 p.m., in plenty of time to head inside and catch warmups before the 7:00 p.m. drop of the puck. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area as soon as possible following the game (expected arrival back in Greenbelt around 12 a.m.). The subway will be open in time for both our departure and return and we encourage our guests to make use of it if convenient.

Our seats are excellent and with bus transportation, the cost for the trip will be $225 per person, the same as last season. 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.

Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your spot on the CRC bus! A reservation should be considered a firm commitment as it will be used to finalize the group plans and others’ reservations. To reserve your spot on the bus, or for more information, please e-mail (Please specify number of seats/tickets needed.)
