Greetings from the TES headquarters!
Tonight, as we watch the Dodgers play the Mets, we are still very giddy over seeing our Capitals climb out of the cellar to claim the NHL Southeast Division title, with the 5-3 win over the Jets Tuesday night. This was also the last game against the SE that the Caps will play, as in the 2013-2014 season, the NHL will realign the teams into new divisions. The Caps will now be playing the Blue Shirts, Devils, Isles, Flyers, Pens, Blue Jackets, and Hurricanes. For we here in Gotham, the chance at around 10 Caps visits to NYC every year (and with the Isles moving to Brooklyn, easy access to all three local venues). It should help the NHL build the fan base, and perhaps bring a new golden era to this game we love. Also of note - every team will face every other team in the league each season. A great chance for the fans of each franchise to see all the stars in the league.
