Aiming to rule the Eastern Conference for a third year, the Washington Capitals heat up their home ice with sizzling slap shots during goal-scoring sessions at the Verizon Center. In his 14th year of pro play, goalie Tomas Vokoun hopes to turn heads by besting last year’s .922 save percentage. Superstar left wing Alex Ovechkin startles opposing defenses with lightning speed, superior strength, and the unsettling good looks of his bobblehead doppelgänger as he tries to top last season’s 32 goals, 53 assists, and 11 game-winning shots. Surrounded by restaurants, businesses, and high-rise condos, the Verizon Center buzzes with activity nearly every day of the year, and its hypnotic high-def video board broadcasts scores and embarrassing childhood nicknames of rival players.
To attend the meet-and-greet with Rod Langway, which occurs from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. before both games, Groupon customers must enter the Verizon Center at the main F Street entrance. Inside the arena, visitors take the main elevator to the fourth floor, enter the 400-level concourse, and check in for the meet-and-greet at the table outside of section 429–430.
