The Capitals returned home from Toronto late Wednesday night and officially began their All-Star break and bye-week. The Capitals are now off until 2:00 PM on Thursday, January 31, when they hold their first practice after break at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. As a result, Thursday was “getaway day” for Capitals players and families. Here are a few pics from their busy day on Thursday.
