The 2016-2017 Washington Capitals schedule is set and the Capitals are returning from a remarkable 2015-2016 season. The Capitals finished 1st in both the Metropolitan Division and Eastern Conference, and they were the winners of the Presidents’ Trophy. As the best team during the NHL regular season, it appeared the Capitals were on their way to win the Stanley Cup, however they lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Capitals have locked-in players such as Marcus Johansson, Tom Wilson, Zach Sill, and more for the 2016-2017 season and beyond. It will be interesting to see if they can keep up the same success they had last year and if they can finally claim the Stanley Cup as their own.

Capitals vs. Penguins
Before Ovechkin vs. Crosby or any of the other young guns took over, these two teams locked up the same way they do today. The Pens knocked the Caps out of the playoffs in 1991 on the way to their first Stanley Cup Championship, and knocked them out again on the way to the repeat. With memorable games between them like the 2011 Winter Classic continuing to fuel the fire, this rivalry won’t have water dumped on it any time soon.
Capitals vs. Flyers
There’s only one team the Capitals have been in more fights with than the Penguins, and that’s the Philadelphia Flyers. The two teams played in the playoffs in 2009 with the Flyers coming back from down 3-1 to win the series, forever cementing the Flyers as one team the Caps players and fans will always dislike.
Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup, Eastern Conference Championship, and NHL Playoffs
The Capitals, despite having not won a Stanley Cup in franchise history, have still had their fair share of successes. Washington has made appearances in two Eastern Conference Finals even making a trip to the NHL Stanley Cup in 1998. With an incredible 23-playoff appearances dating back to 1983, the Washington Capitals are certainly no slouch.
2015 Washington Capitals Season Preview
The Washington Capitals rode a new coach, and a new philosophy to an incredible season a year ago, reaching the 2nd round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. While this result exceeded many people’s expectations for the team, the Capitals blew a 3-1 series lead, and lost a tough game 7 in overtime. The 2015 Washington Capitals look to avoid a letdown after such a tough season exit. As always, the Capitals will be led by superstar Alex Ovechkin, but the Caps brought in veterans T.J. Oshie and Justin Williams to try and bolster their scoring attack. Netminder Braden Holtby looks to continue his evolution into one of the premier goaltenders in the NHL and should be fantastic in front of the net for the Capitals in 2015. Ovechkin has kept the Capitals as contenders for years, but with the new talent around him, 2015 might be the year the Washington Capitals finally break through to the Stanley Cup.
2014 Washington Capitals Season Preview
The 2013-2014 season saw the Washington Capitals fall painfully short of a playoff berth. Washington finished the season 38-30, and just 3 points shy of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Missing the playoffs a year after finishing 3rd in the Eastern Conference led the Captials to bring in new leadership and the team comes into 2014 with new head coach Barry Trotz and a new general manager in Brian MacLellan. Notable players who departed the Caps after last season are Mikhail Grabovski and Jaroslav Halak. Replacing them will be solid defensive veterans Matt Niskanen, and Brooks Orpik. This focus on shirring up the defense comes as Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin has been under fire for his defensive woes. It is hard to imagine a player being criticized after a season that saw him score 51 goals, but these are the expectations around the once in a generation talent like Ovechkin. The defensive improvements for the Washington Capitals when combined that with Ovechkin’s scoring ability give the Caps a very legitimate shot at the 2015 NHL playoffs.
2013 Washington Capitals Season Preview
The Caps lost in 7 games to the New York Rangers last season, but now that head coach Adam Oates has had a full season to implement his tactics, will they get over the hump? Mikhail Grabovski joined the club from Toronto in a one-year deal, replacing Mike Ribeiro who went off to the Coyotes. Matt Hendricks and Joey Crabb also made way, but the roster is pretty much intact from last season other than those few players. Alex Ovechkin was back in his world-class form at the end of last season, and got his third Hart Trophy after leading the league in goals. Marcus Johansson will also be key in putting together a full season of success. The Capitals will host the Flyers on Dec. 15, then the Devils and Rangers later on the in the month. January will be a strenuous month for the team from our capital, as the Caps play the Maple Leafs, Sharks, and Senators at home as well as the Penguins, Rangers, Devils and Canadiens on the road.
2010 Washington Capitals Season Preview
After cruising to the best record in the NHL last season, the Washington Capitals were upset in the first round of the playoffs by the the Montreal Canadiens. The team returns many of the players that contributed to an outstanding regular season, and will be looking to move past recent playoff failures and onto the Stanley Cup Finals. The Capitals will once again be anchored by one of the best forwards in the league, Alex Ovechkin, who had 50 goals and 59 assists last season. However, Ovechkin is not the only weapon on this team. Youngsters Mike Knuble, Brooks Laich and Tomas Fleischmann will provide stability on the second line, and Nicklas Backstrom will be back after notching an impressive 68 assists last year. Mike Green and Jeff Schultz offer veteran stability on the defense, and will be joined by a pair of newcomers in John Carlson and Karl Alzner. The defense should be solid in front of the netminding duo of Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth. The two will split time, replacing last year's goaltender Jose Theodore, who was not resigned.
