The team originally played at the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. The team moved into the Capital One Arena in 1997, which is located in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The Capitals made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1998 and finally hoisted the cup for the first time in 2018.
In addition to their first Stanley Cup victory, the team has also won multiple Eastern Conference titles, division championships and the Presidents’ Trophy. The team’s strength and success have come from a strong core of prospects that the Capitals drafted like Alexander Ovechkin, Nicklas Bäckström and John Carlson. The Capitals play in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference where they frequently face opponents like the Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes.
