I made it out to the Verizon Center last night to support the Caps in the semi-finals against the Penguins. It was an amazing game, Caps are now up 2-0 in the series thanks to another clutch goal by Steckel and of course Ovechkin with his first playoff hat trick. The series is moving back to Pittsburgh, so I will have to watch the next couple games on TV. I’m glad I went, because I have never heard the Verizon Center as loud as the video above. The fans poured out into the streets and there were cars honking and people cheering “CAPS CAPS CAPS!”. Finally, something to root for in this town. Check out my pictures here.
On a side note, I have been reading a ton of Caps stories everywhere online, but I have especially enjoyed the Capitals Insider, DC Sports Bog and Mike Wise’s piece on Donald Brashear lately. Click through for more videos and pictures from the game.
