There was an average 3,000 people there for each game according to the stewards whereas a normal home game for the Capitals brings in around 600 people.
I missed the Thursday night but was there for both games on Saturday and again on Sunday.
The Edinburgh Capitals had a much smaller squad than the other three but their fighting spirit was fantastic. Currently they have 3 netminders, 5 defenders and 11 forwards so I really do hope their squad will increase in size, it is a great team.
Unfortunately the Capitals came 4th, the Giants 3rd, the Toronto Marlies second and the Hamilton Bulldogs won overall. A great event though.
I used to follow the Nottingham Panthers for many years and even used to attend the games and the general ice skating sessions as a first aider with St. John Ambulance and very rarely missed a home game, but then I was hooked and started attending the away games.
So, after a weekend of ice hockey I am once again again hooked, so Edinburgh Capitals, you have a new fan! See you all on the 11th October at Murrayfield.
