All Aboard the Bandwagon to D.C. … Literally!

What’s a Devils fan to do when this year’s playoffs don’t include them?  Jump on another team’s bandwagon of course!  Every hockey fan does it. They pick two teams they’re going to pull for during the playoffs, one from each conference, and then see if they’re right.  If not, they just continue to jump from bandwagon to bandwagon.  I’ve made my stance about who I’m rooting for in the East this year, some know who, others do not.  But for one night I’m choosing to jump on the Washington Capitals bandwagon.

You see, my husband is a die-hard Rangers fan.  So, any opportunity I can get to root against our Blue Shirt rivals, I jump at the opportunity. We decided earlier in the week that this would be a great experience for both of us, and one that we would both enjoy.  After all, I did bring him to Chicago for a Devils/Blackhawks game  last season, and he donned a Hawks jersey.  So, it’s only fitting that I go to Washington and  rock my Ovechkin t-shirt.   Therefore , tomorrow morning we’ll head down to the D.C. area to do some sight-seeing,  and get ready for Game 2 of the Washington Capitals vs. New York Rangers series.

Having watched a lot of the Rangers/Caps games all season, this is still anyone’s series for the taking.  The Rangers outscored the Caps 17-6 and took the season series 3-1.  They also held Alexander Ovechkin to no goals and two assists.  Last night however, Alexander Ovechkin got on the board and tied the game late in the 3rd period.  The game headed to overtime and the Caps came out with the victory.

The Capitals lead the 7 game series 1-0. Game 2 is tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. and I can’t wait to enjoy some playoff hockey.  I’ll be rocking my red one way or another, even if it is for a different team.

Go Caps Go!

  1. Go Caps Go! I’m going for the Caps and Canucks, obvious picks but they’re my favorite teams behind the Devils. And the Canucks have awesome jerseys, duh! :)
