This was not a good season to put it mildly for the Washington Capitals. The team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2014. But that didn’t mean the 2022-23 season didn’t have good moments.

My favorite moment was riding down to Raleigh in an RV with Captain Obvious for the Stadium Series. Even though the team didn’t show up, other than in those nice sexy varsity jackets, the fans certainly did! It was cool parking at the hotel and seeing the lobby filled with Capitals fans.

Anyway here are the five best moments of the season and we start without a game.

#5 Rock the Retro concert

That’s right number five is not a game but rather a fun gathering at the 9:30 Club in D.C. back in November during the launch of Reverse Retro 2.0 where the team put together a 90s themed concert and party featuring the band White Ford Bronco playing all the 90s hits.

It was fun singing along to old songs of my childhood and it was cool running into lots of people that night including Mike Vogel, Alan May, Craig Laughlin and Ian Oland.

It’s sad that they’re doing away with the Reverse Retro since Fanatics now has the jersey rights and not Adidas. But hopefully the Caps can put together more events like this in the future.
