For four seasons, the Capitals played firewagon hockey under Bruce Boudreau, saw Alex Ovechkin score a ton of goals, and couldn’t get past the second round of the playoffs.
The Capitals officially opened training camp Sunday when 24 players hit the ice in front of hundreds of fans at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
It’s been 245 days since the New York Rangers eliminated the Capitals in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The NHL lockout meant a lot of things to a lot of players.
