Face it, Caps fans. It's going to be hard to find a Stanley Cup playoff ticket at the Phone Booth this postseason. But, there are several options if you can't get an actual seat.
First, the Caps are apparently offering up about 100 standing-room only tickets for Games 1 and 2 -- for $100 each. Yeah, it's a bit steep, but if you want to get in the door, you're gonna have to pay.
If you're not willing to spend that much but still want to feel a part of the action, there are some other options.
There is a rally at the Kettler practice rink from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. You can watch the team practice for Game 1, which can be just as cool as watching a game. Unless, you know, you're Allen Iverson.
Several "official" Caps viewing parties are planned for the first four games of the series. Fans who show up have a chance to win game tickets and other Caps swag.
Game 1 (Thursday, April 15): RFD -- 807 7th Street (one block from arena)
Game 2 (Saturday, April 17): Iron Horse Tavern -- 507 6th Street (one block from arena)
Game 3 (Monday, April 19): Hard Times in Clarendon -- 3028 North Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Va. Game 4 (Wednesday, April 21): Union Jack’s in the Ballston Common Mall, 671 North Glebe Road, Arlington, Va.
