It's time to rock the red, Capitals fans.

Washington Capitals fans will make their way out to the Verizon Center Thursday night as their team takes on the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m.

Some tickets are still available on the secondary market, but they'll cost you. On StubHub, tickets are available in most sections, but prices range from $60 all the way up to $425. On Craigslist, seats are going for hundreds of dollars each as well.

Some members of the Capitals say a players-only meeting in early February played an important role in saving their season. Without it, the Capitals might not have won their fifth Southeast Division title in six years, or in the playoffs at all.
