Through six weeks of the 2018-19 NHL season, things have been up and down for the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals. Ovechkin and the Caps currently sit 4th in the Metropolitan Division, separated from the top by just three points. With nearly three quarters of the season to go, there’s plenty of time for Washington to get to the top of the division and there’s also plenty of opportunities for you to catch some games in person.
Let’s take a look at five of the best games remaining on the Capitals schedule.
Washington Capitals vs. Vegas Golden Knights
December 4 | 7 PM
While things aren’t going nearly as well for the Vegas Golden Knights in the team’s second NHL season, there’s still a lot of reason to check out this game, especially if you’re into the whole Stanley Cup Final rematch scenario. This will be the final regular season matchup between these two teams, making it the perfect excuse for a pre-holiday trip to Las Vegas if you want to catch it up close and personal. Tickets are available here.
Washington Capitals vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
December 19 | 8 PM
There’s never a dull moment when these two Metro Division rivals face off. December 19 in Capital One Arena should prove no different. Crosby, Malkin, and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten off to a slow start this season, but they’ll certainly show up for one of the best – and arguably only – real NHL rivalries. This is one you won’t want to miss. Tickets available here.
Washington Capitals vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
January 23 | 7:30 PM
If all goes well, Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews will have returned from injury by the time this matchup happens. That means Capitals fans will get a chance to see Matthews, John Tavares, Mitch Marner, and the rest of the fast-paced Leafs in late January. You can find tickets here.
Washington Capitals vs. New York Rangers
February 24 | 12:30 PM
At the time of this writing, just a single point separates the Capitals and New York Rangers, with the Rangers sitting in 3rd place in the Metropolitan Division. If the division race continues to be as tight as it has been thus far, this late-February matchup could prove to be a pivotal one for both teams. If you can make it out to see this game in person, we highly recommend it. Find your tickets here.
Washington Capitals vs. Minnesota Wild
March 22 | 7 PM
In the first of two meetings between the Capitals and Minnesota Wild, Washington bested the Central Division powerhouse in Xcel Energy Center by three goals. Despite the dominant win, Minnesota has played some fantastic hockey this season and this March 22 matchup in D.C. should be an exciting one. Tickets are available here.
