The Caps’ final meeting of the season against the Flyers was our first visit to the renamed Wells Fargo Center. The suite had been moved to the exact opposite corner of the arena, but the open bar and buffet were still awesome. After going up three goals and forcing the removal of starting netminder Sergei Bobrovski, the Caps allowed four unanswered before tying in the final minutes of regulation. Overtime wasn’t enough to end the game, but when Alexander Semin scored on his third shootout attempt he sent the Roadies into jubilation!

The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Philadelphia, PA for a rare midweek visit to Wachovia Center.
We will be hitting the road by bus to the Wells Fargo Center to cheer on the Caps as they take on our longtime conference rival, the Flyers, at 7:30 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.
Here’a a 360º view of the suite.

This is one of our most unique trips and has become a popular annual destination for Caps fans. 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 email@example.com 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 2:15 p.m. on March 22nd; the bus will depart at approximately 2:30 p.m. We’ll arrive at the Wells Fargo Center by 5:30 p.m., in plenty of time to head inside and catch warmups before the 7:30 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.).
Our seats are excellent and with bus transportation, the cost for the trip will be $225 per person, the same as last season ($235 after 1/1/11). 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 prevent us from making any stops on the way. The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/tv units.
