The Capitals are offering fans preseason tickets starting at $26 on Groupon, the daily-deals site for which team owner Ted Leonsis is an investor.

Fans can choose from three different games in which “superstar left wing Alex Ovechkin will fly at rivals with lightning speed and a thundering cloud of vampire bats as he tries to top last season’s 32 goals, 53 assists, and 11 game-winning shots.” That’s all well and good, but perhaps he’ll get back to scoring 50 goals this year if he ditches the bats.

Ovechkin played in all three home contests last preseason, but the Capitals play seven times this preseason, including a sort-of-home game Tuesday in Baltimore.

Update: There are also plenty of preseason tickets available — some for less — on Craigslist and StubHub, as several readers have pointed out.
