Exciting news for hockey fans! The Capitals are now up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and will host Game 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
Also good news: Those fans concerned about getting home after the game can take comfort in knowing that Metro has extended its service by an hour for the game. The $100,000 cost for the extra hour was paid for by Exelon, the parent company of Pepco.
This is the schedule for Tuesday night:
Red-Green-Yellow from Gallery Place-Chinatown.
Red Line - in the direction of Glenmont 12:38 a.m.; Shady Grove 12:32 a.m.
Green Line - in the direction of Branch Avenue 12:28 a.m.; Greenbelt 12:48 a.m.
Yellow Line - in the direction of Huntington 12:19 a.m.
Blue-Orange-Silver from Metro Center.
Blue Line - in the direction of Franconia-Springfield 12:28 a.m.; Largo Town Center 12:27 a.m.
Orange Line - in the direction of New Carrollton 12:20 a.m.; Vienna 12:36 a.m.
Silver Line - in the direction of Largo Town Center 12:27 a.m.; Wiehle-Reston East 12:21 a.m.
With the puck dropping a little after 8 p.m., this new schedule should give fans plenty of time to make a train home. If the game goes into overtime, there will be announcements in the arena, via Metro’s text alert system and on Twitter (@wmata and @metrorailinfo).
