No. 7: Washington Capitals
In the Caps’ most recent affair, the team battled back from a two-goal deficit in the third to bring home a win in OT. The season has had its ups and downs for Washington, but this is still the deadly team that we saw last year edge closer to the Stanley Cup. Goaltender Braden Holtby has continued to be very reliable as the Capitals have allowed the third fewest goals in the NHL (79).
