Who are the Washington Capitals' biggest rivals in the conference?The biggest rivals the Washington Capitals have are the Pittsburgh Penguins. The team has been in a rivalry with the Penguins for a while, and it has an ongoing competition with the New York Islanders, the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers. Unlike the rivalries with the other three teams, the Caps and the Penguins have had a hate-hate relationship pretty much since the Washington Capitals started. The two teams have played against each other 208 times, which amounts to the most times an opponent has played either of them. The Caps’ record in those games is 91-95-16-6. The two teams were placed in the same division in 2014. The Penguins and its fans bring out the yellow towels, and the Caps love to hate them.
Who are some of the most notable players who have been a part of the team?While the franchise didn't have the best start, after nearly 40 years, the Washington Capitals now have one of the best home crowds in the NHL. The star player, Alex Ovechkin, is arguably the greatest player in franchise history. Other top players who have been on the Capitals' roster since it began include Rod Langway, Peter Bondra, Dale Hunter, Mike Gartner, Olaf Kolzig, Scott Stevens, Kevin Hatcher, Bengt-Ake Gustafsson and Nicklas Backstrom. The list of notable Washington Capitals includes some of the best players in the league. There's a lack of a notable goalie on the list. Many argue a strong goalie is all the Capitals need to add to its roster for many years of victory.
