Capitals Take the Devils 7-2 in Their 2010-11 Home Opener

WASHINGTON, DC – October 9, 2010:  Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin (#8) attempts to get a shot off on New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur (#30) after drawing a penalty during their NHL ice hockey game at Verizon Center. Ovechkin missed this attempt but score on his ensuing penalty shot.

The Washington Capitals beat the New Jersey Devils 7-2 in their fight filled 2010-11 season home opener at Verizon Center last night. There is a lot to talk about from this game and you’ll find it on all the regular blogs like Japers Rink, Russian Machine Never Breaks, On Frozen Blog, and on and on…how many Caps blogs are there these days?  I sure can’t keep up.

There is one thing they won’t talk about, but I’ll just point it out.  WTF?! is with the guy standing in the front row and blocking the views of everyone behind him?  And not content to just block with his torso, he has to throw his hands out to the side and hold them to make sure no one else can see anything.  You can see at least five people suffering from CSS syndrome and straining to try to fix that. I mean, I understand that you spent a monthly car payment on that front row seat.  And you’re excitable. And just can’t contain yourself being so close to Ovie when he might score. You know what? He’s not going to score with you, so sit down and let everyone else see. I hope you got your money’s worth.  Blocking everyone else? That’s just a well played bonus, I guess.

Some of the photos I took are on Flickr and more will probably be added later.  I took too many. Again.
