Washington Capitals Tickets
The Washington Capitals are a professional ice hockey team based in Washington, D.C. They are members of the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). As an expansion team for the 1974-75 season along with the Kansas City Scouts, the Capitals joined the National Hockey League. The team was owned by Abe Pollin, owner of the NBA's Washington Wizards. Pollin had built the Capital Centre in suburban Landover, Maryland, to house both the Wizards and the Capitals. Being the owner, he laid utmost emphasis on the hiring of Hall of Famer Milt Schmidt as general manager.

The Capitals unveiled new uniforms on June 22, 2007 which coincided with the NHL Entry Draft and the new league-wide adaptation of the Reebok-designed uniform system for 2007-08. The change marks a return to the red, white, and blue color scheme originally used from 1974 to 1995. The new primary logo is reminiscent of the original Capitals' logo, complete with a hockey stick formed by the letter "t"; it also includes a new feature of having 3 stars representing Maryland, Virginia, and DC that the original logo didn't have.
NHL and the rival World Hockey Association having 30 teams between them, the Capitals with a few players with professional experience were at a disadvantage against the long-standing teams that were stocked with more experienced players. Like the other three teams who joined the league during the WHA era the Scouts, Atlanta Flames and New York Islanders the Capitals did not factor the arrival of the WHA into their plans.In 1975-76, Washington went 25 straight games without a win and allowed 394 goals en route to another horrendous record 11-59-10 (32 points). During the middle of the season, Max McNab was hired as GM, and Tom McVie was hired as head coach to replace Schmidt. For the rest of the 1970s and early 1980s, the Capitals alternated between dreadful seasons with a few points out of the playoffs.
In 1980 and 1981, they were in playoff contention until the last day of the season. One bright spot during these years of futility was that many of McNab's draft picks would impact the team for years to come, whether as important members of the roster or crucial pieces to major trades. By the summer of 1982, there was serious talk of the team moving out of the U.S. capital, and a "Save the Caps" campaign was underway. Then two significant events took place to solve the problem.
The Capitals were favourites during the 1993 playoff series with the New York Islanders but they were upset in six games. That series was most remembered for Turgeon's injury, who fell awkwardly onto the ice and suffered a separated shoulder. Turgeon missed the Isles' entire second round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins as a result. Hunter's post-goal check suspended him for the first 21 games of the next season which was the longest suspension for an on-ice incident in NHL history. Hunter had been the team's best player in that series with eight postseason goals.
The Capitals finished the 2005-2006 NHL season in the cellar of the Southeastern Division again, with a 29-41-12 campaign. Yet the team played close in every game, playing in 42 one-goal games, although losing 2/3 of those games. Ovechkin's rookie season exceeded the hype, as he led all 2005-06 NHL rookies in goals, points, power-play goals and shots. He finished third overall in the NHL in scoring and tied for third in goals; and his 425 shots not only led the league, but also set an NHL rookie record and was the fourth-highest total in NHL history.
In the 2006 offseason, Halpern left the Capitals for the Dallas Stars; therefore Chris Clark became the Capitals' new captain. Richard Zednik returned to the Capitals in 2006-07 after a disappointing 16-goal, 14-assist season in 2005-06 with Montreal, but was later dealt at the trade deadline to the New York Islanders after a disappointing and injury plagued season; the Caps also signed former Philadelphia Flyers enforcer Donald Brashear. The Capitals finished with the same 70 point total in 2006-2007 as they did the year before, although they won one less game. Alexander Ovechkin was the Capitals' lone representative in the All-Star game. The year was also notable for Alexander Semin's breakout, who notched 38 goals in only his 2nd NHL season.
