The Washington Capitals will begin their Stanley Cup title defense by opening the season at home against the Boston Bruins. They are sure to have a banner reveal and a pre-game ceremony honoring last season’s championship team.
Boston finished last season in the second round of the playoffs after losing the series four games to one to the Tampa Bay Lightning. After going up in that series 1-0, they lost four consecutive games ending their Stanley Cup title hopes.
They will look to bounce back with a win tonight and spoil the Capitals first game after winning the Stanley Cup.
Boston has not played well against the Capitals recently and have lost ten straight meetings dating back to 2015.
The Washington Capitals captured their first ever Stanley Cup Trophy by defeating the Vegas Golden Knights four games to one. The finals did not start out great for the Capitals as they lost game one by a score of 4-6.
However, the Capitals completely shut down the Golden Knights in games two through four and rallied to secure the title. Of course, Alex Ovechkin was the star for Washington and he will be looking to start the season off right with a win over Boston.
There will be a ton of excitement going into the new season as the Capitals will start their title defense. They match up well against Boston and should not have much trouble taking them down in game one of the brand-new season.
