The Washington Capitals opened the NHL season with a thud in Atlanta losing 4-2. They have a chance to put the loss behind them real quick because they play their home opener tonight at Verizon Center against the New Jersey Devils at 7pm. There are some very high expectations for this years Capitals season and they must make a deep run into the playoffs. They are still a very young team and their window of opportunity to the Stanley Cup will remain open for at least the next 4 or 5 years, maybe even longer. They do have the best player in the world that is just hitting his prime inAlexander Ovechkin and the team will always have a chance as long as he is on the ice. I know it's no fun to start the season with a loss, but don't worry because this Caps team is seasoned enough and will do some very big things that hockey fans in this town have never seen, a Stanley Cup parade in D.C. is what I'm referring to! So sit back have a coke and a smile and enjoy this NHL season!
