The Washington Capitals are shining in one of their brightest seasons to date – and it’s by no matter of coincidence.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. A lot of hard work has been contributed to making the Washington Capitals great this season. Everyone from players to coaches to management and team staff has been working extra hard.  Everyone has played a part so far this season and what a season to be a part of! The shining beacon of hope on the landscape of Washington sports has been a team effort and it feels right to enumerate on some of the reasons why we’re feeling so grateful as fans.

Especially this year, when the Washington Capitals have been accompanied by such lofty preseason expectations, we should give voice in thanking the efforts that the team has done for all of us as fans. Night after night the Washington Capitals have brought a smile to my face, so I’d like to give them thanks while recounting everything that has brought us blessings during this holiday.

Watching a lot of the coverage from the teams’ media, I get a sense of unity amongst the team that feels more like a family than an athletic organization. Maybe I’m feeling the optimism of another season after putting forth one of the best starts through 20 games in team history, but I think it’s more than that. I think we’ve got a good synergistic energy around the team and great things are on the way.

It’s been a joy to write about the Washington Capitals so far this season and I want to thank our readers for following the team with us. Our combined passions for the team is voiced (loudly) during each and every game – whether it’s live in the Verizon Center or broadcast to the world. You can’t help but feel a swell of pride around the team during their 41st season in the National Hockey League. It’s a great time to be a fan of the Washington Capitals.

So, while we’re all giving thanks this holiday season, here’s why I’m thankful for my favorite athletic team in the world.
