The Scouting Report
As the NHL finally returns for an abbreviated 48-game season, the Capitals cruise back into action in pursuit of their sixth-straight playoff appearance. A year ago, the Caps skated to a 42–32–8 record, strong enough to claim seventh place in the Eastern Conference and earn a brand-new locker-room hot tub filled with nacho cheese. Despite an eventual loss in the conference semifinals, the team also managed to amass one of the best home records in the league at 26–11–4—a streak they hope to repeat as they host opponents on the Verizon Center ice.
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.
