Caps zap Phils on fight night

On the big screen was a big fight between Tom Wilson and a Philadelphia Flyer Friday night at Verizon.  Wilson, a 19-year-old forward from Toronto, won the battle/Patricia Leslie
Okay, boys and girls, you want fights?  You had 'em Friday night at Verizon when the Caps played the Philly Flyers and came out victorious in the boxing ring and ice rink, too.  The final score:  6-3, and we got wings.  (You have to go to a game to find out what this means.)

This photo is deceiving since the Caps won all the fights and the game/Patricia Leslie

There were so many fights Heidi and I lost count, and they happened so fast it was tough to aim, focus, and fire the camera, but you get the picture.  Is everything Philadelphia always so rough and tumbly? Of course. It's Philadelphia.  No disrespect intended!  Just the facts, m'am.

Usher!  Usher!  There's a scrum below Section 119/Patricia Leslie

Rather than a pre-season game when play might not as fierce as a regular game, this one was p-u-r-t-y muscular, and here we go!  What a season awaits.  Go, Caps, go!  At the last preseason game Saturday the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Caps 4-3 in overtime. The Caps' preseason record is 4 - 4.

SMSGT. Thomas Lenig is recognized for his military service at the Caps/Flyers game.  In tribute to the troops, fans pause, stand, and cheer all those in military service at every game. We are grateful/Patricia Leslie
