The Washington Capitals haven’t had the best moments when it comes to their playoff history but one year everything was different. Leading up to that year, however, there were some moments that gave the city and the fans a glimmer of hope. In this post, we’ll look at the best of the best.
We’ll not only look at the moments of that glorious Stanley Cup run of 2018 but also take a look at the moments leading up to that run. Not just from that year but in the years prior to that. Let’s hope one year from now we’ll have an updated post of this but the Caps have to stop losing in the first round.
#10 T.J. Oshie’s hat trick against Pittsburgh
In T.J. Oshie‘s first season with the Caps he gave fans a sneak preview of what they got with him as he introduced himself to this rivalry with a hat trick for the ages in a 4-3 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"“That’s kind of the stuff you dream about when you’re a kid playing in the back yard by yourself, scoring the OT winner and getting the hat trick. It was awesome. Great way to win.”"
