The Scouting Report
Last season, the Capitals pushed the Rangers to seven games in the conference semifinals. This season, they may have the talent to go all the way. The team’s stars—NHL-leading scorer Alex Ovechkin and center Nicklas Backstrom—are now joined by two key acquisitions at right wing: former Blues standout T.J. Oshie and three-time Stanley Cup winner Justin Williams. Williams has previously won Cups with Los Angeles and Carolina, bringing priceless advice for younger players, plus a chance to take up the NHL’s limited-time offer where if you win a fourth Cup, your fifth one is free.
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.
