On Wednesday, the Capitals defeated the Rangers, 2-0 at home. The win also clinches Washington their second consecutive Metropolitan Division title and President’s Trophy as the NHL’s best regular season team.
There's always a first for everything...this is the FIRST time the Caps and the Wizards have won a division title in the same season. FACTS!— Scott Abraham (@ScottABC7) April 6, 2017
This is quite an achievement for Monumental Sports because it’s the first time the Wizards and Capitals won their divisions in the same season. And both teams remain in good form as they head toward the playoffs. It’s surreal!
This is a great time to be a D.C. sports fan because ... it may just be the year when both teams make runs to the NBA and NHL Stanley Cup Finals!
