If you smelled something different today, it’s not the flower vendor, or the McDonalds’ fries, or the crazy homeless lady, it’s The Return of NHL Hockey. The strike that depressed Canada, and about six Americans, is finally over, and tonight the Caps return to the MCI Center to face their first opponent since early 2004. Of course, it doesn’t look all that great for our Caps, but with new rookie Alex Ovechkin in skates for the Caps for the first time, it might not be so bad after all.
Caps and Blue Jackets face off at 7pm tonight at MCI Center, and I hear that tickets can still be had, if you’re down with the hockey.
