Triple Header Sunday

This Sunday will be quite a day in Washington sports, and perhaps also in Washington traffic.

The Capitals host the Carolina Hurricanes in an exhibition hockey game at 1 p.m. at the Verizon Center. The Nationals end the 2006 baseball season with a game against the New York Mets at 1 p.m. at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium.The Redskins host the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedEx Field at 4:15 p.m.

Metro expects crowds in the rail system throughout the afternoon, especially during the middle part of the day, as the 1 p.m. events conclude and people go to the 4:15 p.m. Redskins game. (Maybe a double-header for some?)

The Blue and Orange lines are likely to be particularly crowded. Weekend track maintenance could also be a factor.

There will be about 50 people at that caps game, so take that out of the equation.
