Thoughts after the NHL lockout

January 13, 2013

0

Over on BrooksLaichyear.com, I have a couple of posts about the NHL lockout now that it has finally come to an end. As a long time fan, this is the fourth NHL work stoppage I’ve sat through in the last two decades and the third lockout under league commissioner Gary Bettman. But I feel most for all […]

On BLY: 90.7% increase in price of these Caps season tickets over five years

February 17, 2012

With the new season ticket prices the Caps have announced for next season, two 400 level Caps season tickets that went for $1713 total in 2008-09 will now go for $3266 next season. That’s a 90.7% increase in 5 years. It’s a business and the team needs to capitalize while they are hot, but raising […]

On BLY: Looking at Caps tickets prices

February 16, 2012

Over on BrooksLaichyear.com, the Caps blog that my brother and I just started, I took a look at Caps ticket prices on StubHub and some upcoming games that might end up being fairly inexpensive. I got five tickets in the 400 level to last Thursday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets for $8.99 each late that […]

Delivering the ‘Please do not lean forward’ message better

Corey Masisak with NHL.com tweeted the picture above from Vancouver’s Rogers Center tonight, pointing out that this Boston Bruins fan might be “in for an interesting evening” as an away fan at Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. What jumps out at me in the photo, as a Washington Capitals fan, are all the […]

Mike Wise began his May 6 Washington Post column by referencing three legendary hockey coaches and their playoff winning percentages early in their careers, as he defended Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau following the team’s second round exit from the playoffs. Wise wrote: “Bruce Boudreau’s below-average playoff record of 17-20 (.459) keeps being used as […]

If you can’t find the CSN+ broadcast of tonight’s Caps game vs. the Florida Panthers in its usual spot on your cable system, it may have moved due to what looks to be MASN overflow baseball. Check the channel look-up guide on the Comcast SportsNet site to find out what channel it’s on for you. […]

Will the Washington Capitals’ home sellout streak end anytime soon?

December 4, 2010

The Washington Capitals‘ streak of selling out Verizon Center reached 74 games this past Sunday when they faced the Carolina Hurricanes. But fans shouldn’t take that to mean tickets are not available for upcoming games. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, tickets are available for Caps games on the resale market, but you can […]

If The Igloo is to be destroyed…

I wake up the morning of the NHL Winter Classic a bit like a kid on Christmas…but who has to wait until 1pm to open his gifts. Watching the New Year’s Day outdoor ice hockey game—about to be played for the fourth year in a row—has quickly become a tradition for me and I find […]

How often is an NHL 40 goal scorer left off the next season’s All-Star ballot?

November 16, 2010

You can’t really say that Alexander Semin’s recent scoring surge for the Washington Capitals came too late for him to make this season’s NHL All-Star ballot. You could, but even if the league drafted the ballot at the end of October, one month into the 2010-11 season, Semin had 6 goals and 5 assists through […]
