A Couple Notes about Caps/Pens

April 30, 2009 |

I saw that the Caps have restricted ticket availability to the Maryland-DC-Virginia area in an effort to make it harder for Pens fans to get tickets. If the address attached to your credit card isn’t local you will be denied tickets. I know there are other options like ticket brokers or they may know someone in the area who can get tickets but the Caps are doing what they can to keep Verizon Center bathed in red.

I heard an interview with John Feinstein yesterday and he made an interesting point. Everyone thinks NBC is excited because they get the Oveckin/Crosby matchup but there is a problem. NBC has to televise the players championship on May 9-10 which means they are only going to be able to show game 1 of the series. If this was the conference finals they could have shown 3 or possibly 4 games.

This is going to be a great series and I can’t wait until Saturday to start watching it.
