  • The Washington Capitals are a professional ice hockey team that plays in Washington, D.C. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. Since their founding in 1974, the "Caps" have won one conference championship to reach the 1998 Stanley Cup Finals, and captured eight division titles. In 1997, the team moved their home hockey rink from the suburban Capital Centre to the new Verizon Center in Washington, DC. Former AOL executive Ted Leonsis has owned the team since 1999, and has revitalized the franchise by drafting star players such as Alexander Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green, and hired Hall of Fame head coach Adam Oates until he was dismissed following the 2013-14 season. The 2009–10 Capitals won the franchise's first-ever Presidents' Trophy, for being the team with the most points at the end of the regular season.
