Tuesday Tidbits: Get Your Single Game Tickets!

The Washington Capitals have literally become such a hot ticket that the team is adding standing room only tickets this year after selling out 60 consecutive Capitals games (including playoffs ). The Caps announced yesterday that single-game tickets will go on sale Friday, Sept. 10 and may be purchased at 202-397-SEAT, on WashingtonCaps.com, at Kettler Capitals Iceplex and at all local Ticketmaster outlets, including the Verizon Center box office. Once the single-game tickets have sold (they'll be selling as fast as fresh-out-of-the-oven red velvets from Georgetown Cupcake), the team will make a limited number of Standing Room Only tickets available.

The Caps will open their home season against against the New Jersey Devils (who could be with or without Ilya Kovalchuk - the drama continues). The  team will unveil their 2009-10 Presidents’ Trophy and Southeast Division championship banners prior to the game, and fans will receive a magnet schedule presented by GEICO.

And as we drag through another slow day of counting the days until Training Camp, here are a few miscellaneous tidbits for your reading pleasure:

  • And the Willie wait continues. Will Canuck's defenseman Willie Mitchell be rocking the red this season? One Hockey Mom would love to see it...
  • Speaking of the Canucks, as the mom of twins you know of my fascination with thos Sedin boys. Here's an interesting viewpoint on whether Vancouver could give one Sedin the captaincy and not the other should the need arise. (stick tap to Canucks Hockey Blog). My twins were doing anything but channeling the Sedins during practice last night. Coach had them on the same line and several times when one made a drop pass to the other, the intended recipient overskated it as he was skating alongside the brother instead of behind him. Need to work on that one boys...
  • The boss weighs in on Alex Ovechkin (interesting insight from AO on youth hockey in Russia) and the Cap's goalie situation.
That's all for now folks - I'll be sure to update with any developing news. Until then, I think I need a nap...
