From an expansion franchise to a real opponent
Expansion teams usually have a tough job making it in the big league, and it was no different for the Capitals. With their young team lacking big-name veteran players, they were positively crushed by their popular opponents, but it only nurtured the feistiness and resilience of the underdog team from Washington. In fact, plenty of resilience was needed during their 25-year-long streak without a single win, but their fans remained loyal. They are certainly not your traditional polished team but one with real character. In the early '80s, they turned over a new leaf with major star players like Rod Langway and Mike Gartner, who saved the franchise from being relocated. They began to emody real playoff contenders, even though it had taken some time since they were founded in 1974. 1998 saw the year where they managed to reach the Stanley Cup Finals and were pitted against defending champions, the Detroit Red Wings, sadly losing against them in the end, but definitely consolidating their new reputation as an opponent to be taken seriously. Ever since the mid-2000s, fans have lots to cheer on as the underdog team have slowly ascended to ice hockey stardom. They won their first Presidents’ Trophy in 2009 and in the 2017/2018 season, they finally won their first Stanley Cup title – surely the first of many. Don’t miss their ascent to becoming one of the best franchises in the world and see the champions play live with Washington Capitals tickets from StubHub!
