When the final buzzer went at the Verizon Center on Wednesday night, the Caps had earned their eighth win in a row.
That may not seem like a massive number, but it’s the longest winning streak for Washington since they had ten straight wins in 1983-84 season – over 25 years ago. In fact, it equals their longest streak since 1989.
WashingtonCaps.com Senior Writer Mike Vogl posted a great piece about that streak 21 years ago. There are some great Caps names from the past in the article – Dino Ciccarelli, Pete Peeters, Bob Rouse, Calle Johansson, Mike Ridley, and the late Doug Wickenheiser to name a few.
Check out Mike’s blast-from-the-past here.
