No.3: Washington Capitals

Previous: No. 2

Record: 46-17-8 (100 points)

To no one’s surprise, the Capitals clinched yet another playoff berth and will be battle tested in the tough Eastern Conference. Braden Holtby continues his quest to repeat as the Vezina Trophy winner, while Alex Ovechkin found himself snapping his tough 10-game scoreless drought. Make no mistake, the Washington Capitals are built to win the Cup, but do they have what it takes to find playoff success after countless failures in the postseason?
