Washington Capitals Details
2016-17 did not finish the way the Washington Capitals hoped it would. A regular season filled with dominance – 118 points and 1st place in the Metropolitan Division – didn’t translate into a Stanley Cup like many expected it would. The Capitals won a hard-fought first round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs but lost in seven games to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Despite being the 3rd best goal-scoring team and the top defensive team in the National Hockey League, the Capitals once again failed to bring home a Cup for captain Alex Ovechkin, losing that game seven at home in D.C.’s Verizon Center. Washington will have another shot at it in 2017-18 but the team will likely be in “win now” mode considering that some of the stars are starting to age.
Alex Ovechkin will be back wearing the captain’s C and will be expected to have another superstar-level season. Last year, he finished the season with 33 goals and 36 assists, but struggled at times to find the back of the net. Luckily, the Caps were able to lock up T.J. Oshie for the next eight years and he’ll certainly contribute a lot of points. Last season, he was an extremely important skater for Washington and finished the year with 33 goals and 23 assists. With Brayden Holtby in goal again this year, the Capitals should be a top-tier team on the defensive end. Holtby was 42-13-6 last season with a .925 save percentage and a 2.07 goals against average.
