The Washington Capitals are in the middle of a 12 day road trip.
“The mortgage of the building is in the number one position of priority,” Leonsis said in a recent interview. “So concerts and horse shows and the NCAA tournament are really important to us because they help us pay the mortgage on the down days. It’s a balancing act, but I probably would have agreed to the NCAAs and this upcoming schedule.”
Only four of the Capitals’ 12 remaining regular season games will be played at home, and while this six-game stretch is not a traditional road trip — the team will return to Washington at least once to practice — the string of consecutive road games beats their longest homestand of four contests in December.
