NHL Schedule Highlights

I found out that the NHL released the 2005-06 schedule today after Shawn emailed me talking about specific games in D.C. (I didn’t get the chance to check Boltsmag all day).

Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2005: Opening night with the Caps hosting the Blue Jackets (snore!), and defending Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning hosting hockey powerhouses, the Carolina Hurricanes. (Powerhouses?) What an extravagant opening night for fans of both home clubs.

The Capitals host the Bolts at the MCI Center in D.C. on:
Sunday, Oct. 16, 2005
Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2005 (I smell bday presents for Erin!)
Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005
Sunday, Jan. 29, 2006

Interestingly, the Lightning will not face the Calgary Flames at all during their regular season Western Conference stints.

Now all I have to do is call over to the Caps ticket office and see if I can strong-arm/swindle/beg-and-plead for a 19-game weekend plan in my old seats (Sec. 104, Row G, Seats 6 & 7). *shrug* Fuck it… it’s worth a shot!
