Um... it is the last game of the season, it could well be the decider as to who gets the last play off place us or Basingstoke. Basingstoke are away to Coventry on Sat (who have already won the league) and we are away to Sheffield (who are 2nd). All that separates us and Basingstoke at the moment is wins in regulation time.

So it could be all over by Sunday or it could be rather fraught, but a great atmosphere.

You should have said earlier that you wanted to go because I still have some 50% tickets for the game.

Unless the Capitals beat Sheffield tomorrow & Basingstoke lose to Coventry then Sunday will be the biggest game at Murrayfield since the glory days of the racers! Winner takes all for the final play off place.

But don't wear a Vancouver Canucks top or people will laugh at you :wink:

Ticket office opens at 5, but the rink capacity is just under 4k, and they've not reached that since the old Racers days. Here's hoping we have one hell of a night and qualify for the play-offs. There's a disco on in the bar post match.

edited to add, tickets can be pre booked, but it's not necessary: http://edinburgh-capitals.com/sections/columns/chapters/detail.php?id=179

But make sure you get off at the stop immediately after Roseburn or else you have a long hike

Grand job again

I thought the game was a wee bit flat, but I suppose that was to be expected.

Yeah it was a bit flat but I suppose it provided an opportunity to blood some youngsters.

Was quite annoyed with them at the end. At the end of period 2 they gave me a list with all the awards etc in the order they were to be presented (and by whom). Then as I'm announcing them they suddenly decide to tell me they've changed the order!!!

Had they done so earlier it might have been less chaotic. Either that or they should have just gone with the origoinal plan!! :bitchy:

Good luck to the Caps this weekend in the play-off quarter finals against Coventry. If you've fancied going to see a match, but never made it along to one, come to Murrayfield this Saturday for the 6pm face-off:thumbsup:

(here's hoping I get back from Mwell in time :yikes!:)
