Chatting with Adam Oates: Game 1 tonight in D.C.

May 2, 2013
Adam OatesAs Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals get underway at Verizon Center get underway Thursday night, both the Capitals and Rangers have had a lot of time to prepare for one another. Washington last hit the ice on Saturday night in a home win over the Boston Bruins, while the Rangers last played on Saturday afternoon against New Jersey. Both teams are more than ready to get the playoff festivities started in downtown D.C. tonight. My conversation with Adam Oates at the pregame skate today is below, chatting about the long layoff, the return of Joel Ward, the pitfalls to avoid when facing New York, and more. Airtime tonight on 106.7 The Fan and WFED-AM 1500 is 7:15, with both stations carrying every Stanley Cup playoff game the Capitals play this postseason.
