As snow falls, Caps tell fans to hurry home after game

The Capitals just announced to fans at Verizon Center that above-ground Metrorail trains will cease operation tonight at 11 and that fans must be on trains leaving the game by 10:30 in order to be able to get off at those stops.

There were some groans as the announcement was made over the public address system.

The Capitals have sold out 34 straight home games, although the arena appeared roughly 70 percent full for tonight's game against Atlanta.

Anyone know what happened to Backstrom? The Atlanta reporters don't know, or haven't updated. I'm hoping just migraines again.

@ Aldred

No official word, but I'm guessing it's migraines.

Snow... such an inconvenience. Do you realize it is raining in San Diego and that means I must actually wear a freaking coat outside? The audacity of clouds. Show sympathy for the west coast. Loving the Caps streak. GO CAPS!!!!

Well, I'm very glad Ted got to have his game. I know he was worried that he might have to cancel and lose all those ticket proceeds. It's so hard to make the payments on all those houses.

Seriously, I hope everyone gets home safe.

ps...I hope you didn't.
