How to bet on Washington Capitals?
Just when people had all but given up on the notion that the Washington Capitals could ever win the Stanley Cup, the Capitals stepped up and got the job done.
Despite 11 first-place finishes and three President’s Trophy wins as NHL regular-season champions, the Capitals continually had failed to get over the hump. They’d been to just one Stanley Cup final and were swept in that one in 1997-98 by the Detroit Red Wings. That performance had also been the most recent time that the Capitals advanced beyond the second round of postseason play.
All that changed in the spring of 2018, as the long-believed promise held by the Capitals finally blossomed into a Stanley Cup title. Captain Alex Ovechkin, the most prolific scorer in the NHL today, scored the one thing missing from his Hall of Fame resume when he lifted Lord Stanley’s mug aloft and won the Conn Smythe Trophy.
In Ovechkin, the Capitals suit up the one annually legitimate 50-goal threat skating in the NHL today. If he can stay healthy and remain on his current goal-scoring pace, it’s not a stretch to suggest that Ovechkin could challenge Wayne Gretzky’s NHL career mark of 894 goals.
Every trigger man needs to be fed and in silky smooth Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals have perhaps the finest set-up man among current NHL players. Just as Ovechkin dominates the goal-scoring charts, Backstrom is a perennial threat to lead the league in assists.
Washington is blessed with a strong supporting cast, including forwards Evgeny Kuznetsov and T.J. Oshie, puck-moving defender John Carlson and Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Braden Holtby.
The biggest change from 2017-18 was behind the bench, where assistant coach Todd Reirden was promoted when Barry Trotz left to take over the helm of the New York Islanders.
