Summer is here, and let's be honest, unless you're a child who's just been let out of school, it's not fun. With the exception of this weekend's draft and the beginning of free agency July 1, it's even less fun if you're a hockey fan.
Luckily, Comcast Sportsnet is riding to the rescue with re-airings of eight classic Capitals games from the 2011-12 season.
The re-airings will take place over part of the next two weeks, beginning Monday, June 25 and running through June 29 before picking up again on July 2 and continuing through July 5. During the second week, CSN will air Games 1, 3, 4, and 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against Boston. After the jump, the four regular season games that CSN has highlighted.
