Hey everybody. Happy summer and everything, but I’ve gotta remind you: Winter is coming.

The NHL has released the 2014-15 schedule. In a stunning development the Caps will play 82 games with just about half of them at home. Weird how it always works out like that. Venture below for the full thingy and instant, totally shallow analysis.

Here’s the Caps’ press release. Here’s the actual schedule. And because the Caps are awesome, you can already download the whole thing to your calendar.

Notes:

  • Looks like another soft October for the guys. Heading to western Canada after a challenging opening week.
  • Sasha Semin in town on November 8th. Woot. Make your signs now.
  • The latter half of December will pretty much be on the road.
  • Winter Classic at 1 PM on New Years Day. Let’s do this thing.
  • The Caps will be heading to California right around Valentine’s Day.
  • The Caps host the Blues on Superb Owl Sunday.
  • Followed by a huge homestand at the beginning of March.
  • March ends with a home game against the Perds, Trotz’s old crew.
  • Another rough finish with the Wings, Bruins, and Rangers in the final week of the season.

What’d I miss? What are you excited for? Go Caps.

    I wish Caps could play Kings in LA & Ducks the first half of the season… They always play seconds half (why?) and i wont be living in LA anymore next year -.-

  • Bilal

    Glad two of the three Maple Leafs games are on the road. Definitely going to go at least once, but try for twice. GO CAPS

  • mucha563

    I feel your pain since I live in Orange county. We always have to wait until at least February to see them. Good luck with your move.

  • Sarah

    My least favorite matchup of the season… Stars vs Caps, since we can’t have ties any more… on Friday the thirteenth. I’ll break a mirror and make sure my black cat crosses my path before I head out, so things can maximally stink.
    I know I should be excited to see the Stars again, and I will be, but I love both teams so much that it’s like your two best friends getting in a fight.

  • Amykins

    I AM WAY MORE EXCITED THAN I PROBABLY SHOULD BE! So this is my first year as a full STH (10 game package last year). I have two seats in the 400′s on the defend end, and if anyone would like a (only one) ticket to certain game…there may be some that I don’t have a companion for already. Also, holy crap, hockey will be back before we know it.

  • Jimmie

    Fingers crossed that I bag that new job so I can finally buy a season ticket package…

  • JenniferH

    So excited. And this will FINALLY be my official first FULL year of hockey. First year – lockout. Second year – Olympics. So finally – a FULL uninterrupted year of full hockey!

  • Sarah

    Best of luck, Jimmie!

  • Alex

    Drive to Buffalo man, that’s how I’m getting my Caps experiences

    got front row seats in section 323 (diagonally behind the sabres home net, perpendicular to Ovi’s shooting lane during the PP) for $15

  • Bilal

    Seriously! 15 bucks! The prices in ACC are pretty expensive. But the one Buffalo game in Buffalo is on a Monday March 16 (if I didn’t misread the schedule) and I doubt that i’ll be able to go on a weekday (STUPID MONDAYS). All I can hope for is that its on during March/Spring break. Thanks for the advice man.

  • Jimmie

    Thank you, Sarah! Moving from one field to a brand-new one. I’m an old dog who knows a lot of new tricks, but I need to convince the hiring gods of that. ;)

  • Pat Magee

    Gonna need that soft second half of october after those first games…… Montreal, then Boston, then San Jose? Let’s not start the season off 0-3 please?

  • Pat Magee

    Don’t worry, It’ll still be a rollercoaster of excitement!!!

    It feels like it’s been forever since a we’ve had a regular hockey season lol

  • Diller M

    Birthday present from any STH? My traditional after thanksgiving game is on my B-day this year! Nov 28th at 5pm! For the record I am not too proud to beg or take hand outs. Thanks in advance ;-)

  • JenniferH

    I can’t wait until October! :D

  • OVECHKING

    Based on the roster and no further changes, this team is primed for a ~90point season finishing anywhere from 7-9th place and likely a first round exit, Hopefully they sign Mike Green to a 5 year $35M contract extension. Put Majo on the first line, Laich as Second Line center, let grabbo walk and trade for Dion Phanuef!

  • VeggieTart

    Good luck!

  • Pat Magee

    Yup, Just watched that Ovi interview. I’m ready!!!!!!

  • Alex

    Shoot, didn’t notice it was a Monday

    I might end up at the ACC too, a speck of red in a sea of blue

  • Goat

    Kind of grumpy about the extreme lack of Friday night home games, but oh well.

    And, um, what is going on with that header image? It’s mildly unsettling. Heh!

  • Bilal

    Make that 2 specks, i’ll be there for sure

  • Adam Schwager

    Ugh but then you deal with the All-Star game

  • JenniferH

    All-Star game?
