It’s always good to remember where you came from to motivate you on where you want to go next. The Washington Capitals lost in the second round last season to the New York Rangers after taking a commanding 3-1 series lead. Over the offseason, GM Brian MacLellan brought in TJ Oshie and Justin Williams. He also re-signed Braden Holtby to a five-year deal.
Those moves helped push the Caps over the top and have a historic season.
RMNB reader Ben Little sets the stage.
Tonight at 7pm, Game One begins. Our first-seeded Capitals will look to make some more history and return to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1998. Get excited. Get pumped. Be loud. And turn the volume of this video by Sean Morrow up to 11.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
