Washington Capitals fans have waited 20 years for this moment. Their team has made it to the Eastern Conference Finals and hundreds, if not thousands, of Capitals fans made the trip down to the sunshine state for Games 1 and 2. 

Caps fans have been known to travel well over the last several seasons. Friday morning, fans flew out of BWI, Ronald Reagan and Dulles Airport to Tampa Bay to cheer on their Capitals!

One lucky fan even got to meet Rob Carlin of NBC Sports Washington

Brian McNally of The Sports Capitol also was able to confirm a large contingent of Caps fans on his flight.

Whether the folks in Tampa Bay like it or not, there will be A LOT red!

About Michael Marzzacco

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
