The Washington Capitals' Strong Start in the 2018 Season

Last season's Stanley Cup win is creating major hype around the Washington Capitals in the young 2018 season. After their first two games, the Caps are among the top scoring teams in the league. Here, we're discussing exciting upcoming home games and fun places to hang out near the arena in Alexandria and DC.


Upcoming Home Games for the Washington Capitals' 2018 Season


The Capitals' first game this season ended in a huge 7-0 win against the Boston Bruins. The next night, they faced off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in an intense match that led to the Caps' 7-6 win in overtime.

The Caps third game this season will have them playing at home against the Golden Knights, an early season mash-up of the two teams who played in last season's Stanley Cup final. There is great hope of defenseman Michal Kempny returning to the ice on Wednesday night after his rest period for a concussion in the preseason.
