Ice hockey. Last night (13.1.7) went to see Capitals play Sheffield. David v Goliath in UK ice hockey.

Fantastic game. Teams neck & neck throughout. 3-2 for Sheffield with 5 minutes left. Edinburgh equalise with minutes left. No score in overtime, but lots of chances. Capitals win in penalty shoot-out.

Tremendous entertainment. Only £20 for me and son.

Capitals play a fast, open, European style of hockey (compared with the Canadian "muscular" version) so its great stuff!

More often than not Caps play their home games on Sunday - check their website for details.

Equipment: Warm clothing. Its cold in there, and colder when you come out.

    when i lived in USA i watched the Washington Capitals several times and really enjoyed the games but returned toUK in '85 and tried watching UK hockey----it was pathetic !!! Let us hope that it is improved by now. BTW over here we do have an ice hockey league but only two rinks, Manila and Cebu
