Arlington’s hometown professional sports team is kicking off a new season tonight.

The Washington Capitals will take on the Thrashers in Atlanta starting at 7:30 p.m.

A number of local bars are showing the game, but The Front Page in Ballston (4201 Wilson Blvd) is going all out. They’re hosting a Rock the Red Season Opening Party starting at 5:00. The event will feature a raffle for a pair of tickets to Saturday’s home opener at the Verizon Center.

As always, hard core fans can catch Caps practices at Kettler Capitals Iceplex — “presumably the only NHL practice rink built on top of a parking structure” — during the season. See a list of practice times on the Capitals web site.

    I think it’s tomorrow night – not tonight.

    Nope the season opener is tonight. The home opener is tomorrow!! Get to The Page as early as you can!!

  • Here’s where not to watch it: at home. Nope, not on TV. Not even on normal cable. And NHL Online Video, at least last year, was lousy. It’s hard to have a fan base if you make it difficult to watch the games.

      It’s on Comcast SportsNet. (Channel 576 on FIOS)
