Shortly known as "The Caps," the Washington Capitals represent the Washington D.C. in the National Hockey League. The team is another addition to the NHL community, joining Kansas City Scouts as 1974-75 expansion teams. First owned by the NBA's Washington Bullets Abe Pollin, the Capitals saw their home game actions at the Capital Centre, built especially for the Bullets and Capitals, in Landover, Maryland.

Early on, the Capitals were in a disadvantageous spot, having only a few players to have professional experience. This was translated to a record of 8-67-5 during their debut season, the worst in the league in 1974-75. Out of 40 road games, the Caps won only once, allowing the team to make an NHL history for the worst record and road losses.

Coach Jim Anderson was eventually replaced by Tom McVie and a new general manager in the person of Max McNab was hired. McNab added new players to their team including Rick Green, Mike Gartner, Gaetan Duchesne, Ryan Walter, Bobby Carpenter and Bengt Gustafsson. McNab saw a short stint as the GM and was finally replaced by David Poile in 1982. Another big move followed when the newly hired Poile traded veterans Ryan Walter and Rick Green to the Montreal Canadiens. In return, the Washington Capitals acquired Rod Langway, Brian Engblom, Craig Laughlin and Doug Jarvis. Langway, the new team captain, did not disappoint the team as he became a great defensive threat. On the other hand, Dennis Maruk, Carpenter and Gartner provided offensive artilleries for the Canucks.

The team was not able to enter the Cup but with a third-place finish in the Patrick Division and 1983 playoffs appearance, prior talks and plans of the club leaving Washington was finally ended. The team was characterized with slow starts but would later on bring a lot of fire on the ice. Because of this, the Washington Capitals entered the playoffs 14 consecutive years.

In 1992, the Caps successfully made it to the Stanley Cup finals after beating strong opponents Boston Bruins, Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres, but lost to the defending champions, Detroit Red Wings.
