The Washington Capitals won there season opener last night in Atlanta beating the Thrashers 3-1. They played well and the former Hershey Bears players had a big part in the victory. They have there home opener tonight against the Hurricanes. Did I mention that we are only one point out of first.
The photographs today were taken at an exhibition game the Capitals played in Hershey against the Penguins in October 2005. The Caps won the game and everybody got there first look at Alexander the great in the top photograph. In the second shot Freddie Cassivi stops a Maxime Talbot shot in the shoot out.
In the last photograph Shane stands beside Olaf Kolzig the Caps goalie at the end of the game. Ollie has always been one of Shane's heroes and Ollie did not leave him down this day. Shane got to spend the third period when Ollie came out sitting beside him, and Ollie signed his hat before leaving the bench.
