Videos: Washington Capitals' First Official Practice of 2012-2013 Season

There's lots more video on the "flip," from the Washington Capitals first official practice of the season, a bit earlier today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex at Ballston Common Mall in Arlington, VA. Also note, the guy taking photos in the first video is none other than former Virginia (Democratic) political blogger, now full-time sports blogger, Bryan Scrafford (note: see Bryan's excellent photos here).

P.S. As you can see from the videos, Kettler was PACKED with fans this morning, hundreds of them showing up before practice even started to watch some hockey. It's just anecdotal, of course, but there was no sign in Arlington this morning that the long work stoppage has harmed fan enthusiasm much. Personally, as a big hockey fan for many years, I'm glad that we'll be seeing some stability in the NHL for a decade or so. Now, let's go Caps!
