When you’re a fan of the Washington Caps, you’re not just a hockey fan.
You’re a Washington hockey fan, too.
You may know the Capitals as the team with the Stanley Cup on the horizon.
Or you may know them for their history, and for the fact that they are the best team in the league.
Or maybe you don’t know much about the team, or you don.
You just know you’re rooting for the Capitals.
The team’s popularity and the city’s rich history are part of the reason.
But you’re unlikely to find yourself cheering for a team that’s currently sitting in first place in the Eastern Conference.
That’s because the Capitals haven’t won a Stanley Cup since 1992, when the team played its final game at the old Hershey Arena.
That, of course, was more than a decade ago, so there’s no way to accurately gauge how well the team has played under a new head coach and the addition of former Capitals defenseman Mike Green.
And even if you do know what’s going on, how would you feel if your favorite team lost to the Chicago Bulls?
The answer is you wouldn’t be rooting for your team, because there’s only one team in North America that has won three straight Cups.
So the question becomes: Which team is the Capitals, and why?
And that’s a question you should probably ask a lot more than you would with any other team.
The Capitals have won at least two Cups in each of the past three decades, and they haven’t lost a game since 1992.
That means the team that has always dominated the league has done it for decades.
They’ve won two Cups since 1992 when the New York Islanders took the league by storm in the late 1990s.
That team is not the Capitals anymore, though, and the question of why is one of the most important things to understand when it comes to the team.
Why haven’t the Caps won a Cup in three decades?
If you’ve been following the Capitals’ fortunes over the past decade, it’s easy to overlook the fact the team hasn’t won an Stanley Cup in the past six seasons.
The past two years, the Caps have finished with a losing record for the first time in the franchise’s history.
Since that point, the Capitals have gone 4-19-2 and are tied for last in the NHL in wins (29) and points per game (22.4).
That’s a total of 27 games the Caps haven’t scored or scored a goal.
That doesn’t include the four games that the team lost because of a blown call.
The Caps’ first two losses in the postseason were to the Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings, and then a 6-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils in the second round.
That loss was a major factor in the team’s collapse.
The next two losses were to Detroit and Minnesota, and that gave the Capitals a chance to win the Presidents’ Trophy for the second straight year, which is a rare honor in the sport.
They haven’t been able to win a Cup since the first three years of the franchise, but their chances of making the playoffs have increased in the recent past.
After they went 5-10-1 in the regular season and 11-13-1 overall, they went 7-7-1 with a chance of making a deep playoff run, but it fell through.
The following season, they were able to make the playoffs and won the Presidents Trophy, which isn’t exactly a rare feat.
But it was the third time in a row they failed to make it to the conference finals, and it was also their second straight season without a Stanley.
That season, the team was bounced from the playoffs by the Anaheim Oilers, which was a very, very surprising result for a young team with young prospects.
That wasn’t the first team the Capitals faced in the playoffs.
They faced the Philadelphia Flyers twice, and were eliminated in five games.
The final result was another disappointing finish to the season.
But the team didn’t give up on the playoffs, and instead, they bounced back and won their third consecutive Presidents’ Cup.
That win in 2010 was also the first in which the Capitals were able in a five-game series to score two goals in a game, and was also an incredible comeback from a team with a lot of young talent that was struggling.
The difference this year is that the Capitals are going to have to play a whole lot better to make up for their poor record.
How did the team fall apart in 2010?
That year, the Washington Wizards beat the Boston Celtics in six games, and Boston was the best seed in the East.
They took Game 1 in overtime and the Celtics won the game.
That made the Celtics the second seed in a six-team field, so the Capitals would have to beat Boston in six more games if they wanted to make their first trip to the postseason.
So, yes, it was
