In their season opener, the Capitals will play the Stanley Cup champion Blues on their banner-raising night
The Washington Capitals’ opening games of the 2019-20 season will be rife with narrative and storylines. On October 2, the Capitals will open their season on October 2 against the St. Louis Blues in a battle between the last two championship-winning teams.
Before the game, the Blues will raise their Stanley Cup Championship banner to the Enterprise Center rafters in a special pregame ceremony.
The Capitals will then hold their home opener three days later on October 5 against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes defeated the Capitals in the first round last season.
