Capitals Fans Had To Leave An Overtime Playoff Game Early

Jumbotron mentions when the last trains leave the station during an OT game.

Blame the Washington, D.C. metro system.

There really isn't anything more thrilling in sports than overtime playoff hockey.

Fans in Washington, D.C. got to experience that Saturday night.

Some of them didn't get to experience it to the fullest, though.

The game between the Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs went into double overtime and the winning goal wasn't scored until after 11:30 p.m. E.T.

The D.C. metro system closes at midnight, so at least some of the fans at the Verizon Center had to decide between missing their ride or missing the end of the game.

Those who left didn't miss anything they'll regret, as Toronto scored the winning goal at 11:36 p.m. E.T.
