Washington Capitals History

The Capitals were founded in 1974, but did not post a winning record or reach the Playoffs until the 1982-1983 season, when a group led by top scorers Dennis Maruk and Mike Gartner, along with defenseman Rod Langway, ended the frustration. It began a remarkable streak of 14 consecutive seasons in the Playoffs.

After that streak ended in 1996-1997, the Capitals bounced back the next year to win their first conference title. Led by right wing Peter Bondra and goalie Olaf Kölzig, they defeated Boston, Ottawa and Buffalo in the Playoffs to earn their first berth in the Stanley Cup Final. But the Caps were swept in four games.

Alexander Ovechkin arrived in 2005, and since 2007-2008, the Capitals have reached the Playoffs almost every year. The 2014-2015 season began a run of three consecutive years that the Capitals reached the second round, only to lose in heartbreaking fashion. In 2015-2016, they won a franchise-high and NHL-best 56 games only to be felled by Pittsburgh, all the losses coming by one goal. They won a league-best 55 games the next year, but again lost to the Penguins in the second round.

The Capitals would go on to win their first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history in 2018 when they beat the Vegas Golden Knights. Ovechkin currently ranks second in most career goals scored with 822 and continues to chase Wayne Gretzky's career mark of 894. Along with Gartner and Langway, Yvon Labre and Dale Hunter have had their numbers retired.

    Ticketmaster app is very well easy to use with exception of moving tickets to apple wallet. There should be instructions for this option.

    Caps for the win!

    by Chelsea on 11/25/23Capital One Arena - Washington

    We brought our 9 and 5 year old to a game while in town on vacation. It was family friendly and so much fun. Food is super expensive but I guess to be expected. Bring your capitol one card for a discount on everything.

    Amazing game!

    by Golfmanray on 11/25/23Capital One Arena - Washington

    Tickets were great, Caps score with 1:15 left to tie, and again with 3.5 left in OT to win! Doesn’t get any better than that. Ticket buying was also super easy (even got parking close to the stadium at a great rate. Thanks Ticketmaster.

    Blue Jackets at Capitals Hockey

    by Paul C on 11/21/23Capital One Arena - Washington

    Venue was great and it was a stand up to Cancer Game. Section 409 seats offered a nice view for a decent price. Close contest and even though my team lost it was enjoyable.

    Just OK! Not enough Fan interaction like some other arenas I've been too. Who cares about trying to find a cow in the crowd! More fan screen shots of the "Cheap Seats"and the fans in general. People love to see themselves on the Jumbotron, kids, people with signs, dancing. I've never been to a game where you could count the people standing up! Everyone was in their seats most of them not even paying attention to the game! I saw more people looking at their phones than the hockey game and my team wasn't even playing. The Arena itself is not that great either. We were in loge seating and a bar area might have been nice, and not just food stands, although the food was great and you pay $18 for a beer at any arena. Just a so-so experience.

    CAPS great, seats NOT!

    by Aunt9 on 11/17/23Capital One Arena - Washington

    I took my nephew to see the CAPS at the Capital One Arena Tuesday, 11/14/23. The CAPS shut out the Knights and the game was great, however, the seats not so much… I spent $370 for 2 tickets in section 120, row D as a birthday present. These seats were nothing more than folding chairs stuffed/crammed into a too tight space. To make matters worse, one of the seats were actually broken. I had to sit forward in my seat the entire time to allow the person next to fit into their seat, it was very uncomfortable. The seats were too close to even allow for drink holders so we either had to sit our drinks on the floor of hold them the entire time. Every time we all stood, I had wait for the person to my left to sit before I could get back into my chair. It was worse than airplane seats and they’re pretty bad! I have no complaints with the rest of my experience or with the cleanliness or service at the arena but these seats were ridiculous. Lesson learned, I will not be spending the money for “good seats” in this section again!
