It's that time of year again, yesterday the NHL opened the season with a single game and the Bears played their first home exhibition game last night in the Giant Center. Both teams open the regular season on the road this year, the Bears against the baby Pens (BOOOOOOOO) on Wednesday and the Caps against the Thrashers on Friday.
Last night the Bears destroyed the Norfolk Admirals 6-2. Tonight everyone is looking forward to a physical game at home against the WB Penguins.
The top photograph is Louis Robitaille in pregame warm up last year, lets hope the extra weight and muscle he added helps him this year. The other photo is Tomas Fleischmann, word has it that he signed a two way contract with the Caps, but I have not confirmed that yet. On Friday night Tomas helped to lead the Caps to a 7-5 win over the Flyers by getting two goals including the game winner. Good luck this year Flash we want you in the organization.
