BALTIMORE | Tuesday night was not just another exhibition game for the Washington Capitals. Usually, the first game of the preseason is a chance for veteran NHL players to get up to speed after a summer away and for younger guys to impress coaches and fight for roster spots.
From the perspective of the Capitals' organization and the city of Baltimore, there was a lot of buildup for Tuesday night's Baltimore Hockey Classic. This is a chance to expand a fan base further into Maryland, providing something of a novelty by playing at 1st Mariner Arena.
The Capitals were thrilled to get a sellout crowd of 11,082 at 1st Mariner Arena on Tuesday night for the Baltimore Hockey Classic. But in terms of the on-ice action, that many people packed into a building built in 1962 didn't help.
