I really dodged a few Bullets (actually a few Wizards?) with this. In a fit of excitement and most likely fiscal insanity, I signed up for a Capitals playoff ticket plan a few weeks ago. Riding the Metro home after Saturday’s game had sealed the Caps Southeast Title and 3rd seed in the first round, I started to figure out my schedule.

Go Caps – at least until you face the Penguins.
