Walking around Heinz Field before the game, I polled 16 Caps fans on who they thought would score first for their team in tonight’s Winter Classic. Here are the results:
- 5 votes — Alexander Semin
- Tied at 2 votes– Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Brooks Laich, John Carlson, Mike Green
- 1 vote — Eric Fehr
Thanks to Caps fans Zach Osborne, Dan Reed, Kaylee Raltte, the Kimel family, Suzanne and Dave Hoefer, and a few who chose to remain nameless for their predictions!
