Goaltender Braden Holtby notched 29 saves on 30 shots in the 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, so with said coupon you can get a free sandwich. Of course, it’s only valid at participating locations, but the leads us to the question: how many locations are there, period?
There was a time when Roys were plentiful across the city and region. They were everywhere and the Gold Rush Chicken Sandwich was something for which you’d consider driving miles to get. Now? There are none in the D.C. city limits and a quick glance at the restaurant’s location list shows a handful in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.
Last year, the team ran a promotion in which a first-period goal by the Caps netted you a free Roy’s sandwich. You might recall Curtis Glencross’ personal contribution to that cause. They since switched that up a bit to partner with McDonald’s, but the team has to have a lead after the first period to redeem that.
Either way, a solid night for the Capitals and a better morning if you’re still a Roy Rogers fan.
