Caps Kick Off New Season Tonight

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.
