Above, please check out CSN Washington‘s brand-new promo for the Washington Capitals upcoming season entitled “The Race For The Cup.” The commercial, which is inspired by the movie Inception, features clips of Alex Ovechkin cross-checking Brooks Orpik, John Erskine knocking out Chris Thorburn, & Bruce Boudreau leaping maybe 4 inches. If this doesn’t get you excited for the Caps Home Opener – which is now only 33 days away – I’m not sure what will.

And just as a friendly reminder, make sure to keep your schedule clear Friday, September 10th at 10am. That’s when individual tickets go on sale for the Capitals upcoming season. Let’s be honest with ourselves, we all know that every home game this season is going to sell out. So make sure to cancel that friday business meeting first thing tomorrow morning or you’ll be sorry!

  • 33 very long days. I cannot wait ’till Opening Night! 😀

    Also, thanks for posting this and the Ovie Capital One commercial. Being at school 400 miles away from DC keeps me from seeing these on TV, so I feel in the loop a little more seeing them on your blog (I hope that makes sense, haha).

  • Nice. This will be my first “Opening Day” w/ the CAPS and I am excited!!! 😀

    Awesome! My hockey-thirsty juices are flowing just watching this promo video. Thanks for posting it and Ovie’s Capital One commercial too. October can’t come soon enough. GO CAPS! GO OVIE!

    if I get any more pumped up I’m gonna need 10x Albert Haynesworth’s oxygen stash, and that’s saying something. Opening night in 1 month… LEEETTS GOOOOO!!!!!!!

  • Awesome ad! I can’t WAIT for opening day!

    Y’all have to throw another party – preferably someplace “mutually inconvenient” for DC/MD/VA people – for Caps at Thrashers on 10/8. It’s a Friday night; we should get together and watch the game!!!

    why just Ovie, Backstrom and Green by name? why not Semin ? is he no longer a “young gun?”

    the guy DID score 40 goals in the regular season
