How a random act of kindness landed one Caps fan glass-side seats and an appearance on national TV for Game Six
A Caps fan since she was five-years-old, Danielle Shindler went to many hockey games during the formative part of her youth. Danielle’s parents, who formerly resided in northern Virginia, were Capitals season-ticket holders. They passed their passion on to their daughter.
Some of Danielle’s fondest memories from her childhood include going to Caps practices at Piney Orchard Ice Arena in Odenton, Maryland. She once even owned a youth extra-small Olie Kolzig jersey. After graduating college from University of Michigan, Danielle moved back to DC for a job. The best benefit was to be able to see Caps games live again.
While Danielle has many fond memories as a fan, Monday’s Game Six will be a night she never forgets. Not only did the Caps win 3-0 to force a Game Seven in the Eastern Conference Final, she got to watch it from glass-side seats that she sat in for free via happenstance.
