So I was at the Pens/Caps game. Were you?

Postby MarioLives on Thu Nov 21, 2013 1:08 am

First off, I had seats in the 204 section and right to the right was a perogie and kelbosi stand...welcome
To pittsburg. No fights, saw crosbys goal and it was sick. Malkin played ok, Matta was awesome. Very steady. They played a good solid defensive game,
But they were not the skilled looking Pens from last year. Maybe that is a good thing

I listened to the game on caps radio on the way home. Their announcers also commented about the pens not being the same team, but because of the effective defensive style they were playing.

I could hear some lets go pens chants, wish I was at this one.

You were at a Caps game? Call me shocked. Did you wear your Ovi red, white, or alternate jersey?

I knew you could not stay away from me. Put down the camera and lipstick. You are not my type.

Nope. Home with my 3-week old son.

I did go to two Caps/Pens games in 2003 and 2004 while I was at UMD...let me tell you what garbage on ice that was.

Thanks! Congrats to you as well!

First couple months suck...but it's our second and (hopefully) last time through this.

Yeah, we went. Got tickets for $45 each. Probably about my 15th or so Pens-Caps game at the Verizon Center, but its always fun and there seemed to be a lot more Pens fans this time than the last one i went to (2 years ago).

It is always nice to see lovers that have each other's backs. I am sure Kovy appreciates the support.

The days of the Penguin fans completely taking over the Verizon Center are long gone, but that was the best showing I've seen in a few years.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say we used to invade Verizon and the old Caps Arena in Landover, MD to the point where it was almost 50% Penguin fans. Of course, Steeler fans do this at Redskins/Ravens games.

Leonsis blocking ticket sales to non DC/MD/VA zip codes has limited some of the numbers and with the fan base in DC caring a bit more than they used to thanks to their recent divisional success and Ovechkin now on the team, they keep their tickets more than they used to. There are also so many corporate seats that there are less seats floating out there for Penguin fans to grab.

But yeah, last night was the biggest/loudest turnout in a few years.
