The Scouting Report
The shortened 2012–13 season saw the Washington Capitals top the Southeast Division to earn the Eastern Conference's number-three seed and embark on a sixth straight playoff run. In the early going, the Caps seem primed to pick up where they left off, scoring 11 goals in two games while converting on a league-best 55.6% of their power play opportunities. The Caps should be favored in their October 14 tilt against the Edmonton Oilers, who failed to make the postseason last year. Fresh off a postseason berth in 2013, the New York Islanders pose a more formidable challenge and will attempt to protect their goal from the Caps vaunted attackers by picking up a zamboni goalie on the waiver wires.
Prior to the 1974–75 season, the Washington Capitals joined the Kansas City Scouts as the 17th and 18th clubs to become part of the National Hockey League. Eight years later, they played in their first-ever Stanley Cup playoff game on April 6, 1983—kicking off a 14-year streak of consecutive postseason berths. In 1998, Washington finally reached the Stanley Cup Finals, securing its place as one of the NHL's top teams. Headquartered at the Verizon Center—nicknamed the Phonebooth—the Caps skate against their Eastern Conference rivals as mascot Slapshot the Eagle lays new pucks before every faceoff.
