Capitals right wing Joel Ward is an unabashed Baltimore Ravens fan, so please excuse him for being a little overzealous with his Super Bowl prediction:
“Ravens 24-17,” Ward said. “Ed Reed MVP with two picks, one for a Pick 6.”
Ward said he has seen about eight or nine Ravens games since joining the Capitals last season and has had the chance to meet Reed.
“I’m pretty fired up for it,” he said. “It should be a good game.”
Jason Chimera says he’s a Redskins fan but he’ll also be rooting for the Ravens.
“The next best thing is the team down the road,” he said. “You want to keep it local and for Wardo it would be a dream come true.”
Tom Poti is from Worcester, Mass., and is a diehard Patriots fan, but he’s also rooting for the Ravens.
“Ravens, 27-24,” he said. “I think it’ll be close.”
