Rivalries run deep, but one of the best in the AHL is...
Broomball at the Verizon Center
I find that the locker-room can be a sullen place after a loss like the Capitals suffered tonight. So rather then battle beat reporters looking for some quotes to fill their story, I decided instead to stick around the ice in anticipation of post-game festivities.

Sadly this was a friendly competition amongst Alumni associations, instead of a sanctioned Division I NCAA competition. The Capitals host events like this throughout the season, in conjunction with its Group Ticket Sales program. I caught a bit of video of the action, so if you ever wondered what took place on the Ice after the Caps are done cutting it up, here yah go :
