Washington Capitals - Verizon Center Pictures - NHL Panorama
This panorama of the Washington Capitals playing on home ice was taken by James Blakeway.  The Capitals were established in 1974 and joined the NHL® as an expansion team for the 1974-75 season.  In 1997, the team moved from their suburban home arena in Landover, Maryland to Washington D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood.  In 2007, the Capitals unveiled new uniforms marking a return to the red, white, and blue color scheme reminiscent of their original logo used from 1974 to 1995.  The 2009-10 team won the franchise’s first-ever Presidents’ Trophy and, the next season, the team earned the top seed in their conference for the second straight year for the first time in franchise history.

Washington Capitals Panoramic - Verizon Center Picture
This panorama, taken by James Blakeway, spotlights the Washington Capitals® in Game 2, as they defeat the New York Rangers® 1-0 in overtime, to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series. The Capitals held firm when they were a man down, then went on to make the winning goal in overtime. A razor-thin margin in the playoffs between these teams is typical, as five of their seven games in the last year’s postseason were decided by one goal, including three games that went into overtime play. This is the third consecutive season that the Rangers have faced the Capitals in the playoffs, and the fourth time in the past five seasons.
