The Caps were not the only thing missing on Tuesday night. Some fans noticed the absence on a long-time staple of the video board: playing Unleash The Fury when the team is down late in a game. A few of you took to our comments to vent your fears, but according to Michael Wurman, the Director of Game Entertainment and TV Products for the Washington Capitals, there is no need to worry.
“I debated running it early, but I wanted to see how the second period played out,” Wurman told Ian Oland, referring to the 4-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. “The game just didn’t dictate it in the third period.”
“The game always dictates how and what we run,” he added. “Unleash The Fury and the other pump up elements are never scripted.”
