The Washington Capitals began the 2021-22 regular season with a 5-1 win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday. But before the players took the ice that night, the Capitals’ game entertainment team aired its new intro for the year.
This season’s opening video expertly weaves through a bunch of stock footage but also includes cameos from several members of the Capitals family who aren’t current players. Alex Semin, Sergei Ovechkin, and Millie Mantha are all featured in the 90-second video.
The part that choked us up was the tribute to TJ Oshie’s father, Tim, who passed away in May.
