A scoreless first period was unexpected when the Caps took three minor penalties. The Flyers made them pay in the second with one power play goal and one at even strength. A late third period goal from Jaromir Jagr couldn’t save the visitors, though, as the Caps fell 2-1. There are no photos from this trip.
The Caps Road Crew will be hitting the road by bus traveling to the First Union Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to see our Caps take on our longtime Eastern Conference rival Flyers. This is an early season matchup of star forwards as the Caps’ Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr face off against the Flyers’ Jeremy Roenick, Mark Recchi, and Keith Primeau.
The CRC will make arrangements for bus transportation and group tickets. Unfortunately, due to the great demand for tickets to this game, we will not be able to provide tickets to those who do not travel on the bus with the Crew.
Current plans: The Crew will be meeting at the Forest Glen Metro station (just off the Beltway in Maryland at Georgia Ave.) at 1:00 pm on November 2; the bus will depart at approximately 1:30 pm. We’ll arrive in the Greater Philadelphia area around 3:30 pm, where we will be stopping for a pregame meal and drinks. We’ll then head over to the First Union Center in time to go inside and catch warmups before the 7:00 pm drop of the puck. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area immediately following the game (expected arrival back in D.C. by 12:30 am). Our seats will be spread out in the lower level and cost for the trip will be $115 per person. 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.
Ticket arrangements have been made and spots are filling up fast. Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your seat 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. We have space and tickets available for 45 people. Full payment will be due by October 15. To reserve your spot on the bus, or for more information, please e-mail Walt Meyer at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please specify number of seats/tickets needed.)
