PHOTOS: Washington Capitals Morning Practice, April 15

Dave and I are back in DC for a visit so we went over to Kettler Iceplex this morning, Wednesday, April 15 to watch the Washington Capitals practice. We’re looking forward to the Caps hosting the Islanders for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs round one at Verizon Center tonight!

Here are a handful of photos from practice. It was great to take hockey photos again! Enjoy the photos. Hope to see many of you at the game tonight!
