#2 Fans Opening Night
The Caps welcomed back 2,100 fans for the first time on April 27th against the New York Islanders and it was a memorable night showing how far we’ve come as a city in the middle of a pandemic and drama in our Nation’s Capital. This was a night all about us, the fans, who had waited so long to get a glimpse of our team in person.
Some of you reading this were lucky enough to get to a game this past season. Others, like myself, are excited for the day the team takes the ice in front of a full capacity which could hopefully come this October.
The Caps only got one goal from the game, that coming from Daniel Spring in the first period. The rest of the way the Caps dominated and put on a show for the fans with Zdeno Chara even dropping the gloves.
Fans didn’t skip a beat and weren’t phased by keeping a mask on at all times. We could still hear them through the TV’s so the masks didn’t obstruct a lot of air or anything. It’s going to be cool seeing the arena full again next season and we can’t wait for the day.
