Want to play blackjack with Alex Ovechkin or jam with Brooks Laich in a game of Wii Rock Band? Then you won’t want to miss the second-annual Caps Care Casino Night and Auction. Fans are invited to enjoy an evening of delicious food, live music and mingling and gaming with players and coaches, all in the name of charity. Taking place on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2011, at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, this exciting event will feature a raffle, silent auction with game-used equipment and autographed memorabilia and live auction with once-in-a-lifetime experiences with Caps players and coaches.
All proceeds benefit Washington Capitals Charities.

Well, I had one more Caps event before I fly off tomorrow. I went to the Caps Casino Night. Ovie was dressed so nicely. He had a blue suit with red pin strips, very sharp. Here are some pictures:
