2007-2008 Caps Schedule Released

Here are the details.

Caps open up on the road in Atlanta on Friday October 5th and open up the home schedule on Saturday October 6th vs. Carolina.

Because of the Horse Show, four of the first five games are on the road but it is followed by a four game homestand.

Because of the unbalanced schedule, the Caps will make their furthest trip out west to St. Louis on October 27th and play their last game outside of the Eastern Time Zone on March 19th in Chicago.

Traditional Home Games:

Thanksgiving Eve: vs. Atlanta (Nov. 21st)

New Year's Day: vs. Ottawa (4pm faceoff)

Super Bowl Sunday: No game this year.

The Caps have three four game homestands and one five game homestand. The Caps close out the season with three straight games at home with Florida being our final opponent on April 5th at 7 pm.

The longest road trip is six games in March to make way for the NCAA Tournament First and Second Round at the Phone Booth. This road trip closes out the road schedule for the Caps on March 29th in Florida. The next longest trip is four three (it is a busy week at work and I really shouldn't be blogging during breaks...) games.

Looking at the schedule, the following Sunday 3 pm games look suspiciously like NBC broadcasts:

February 24th vs. New Jersey

March 9th vs. Penguin Scum

March 16th vs. Boston

That's all for now. More comments on the schedule later.
