The Capitals weren't even on the ice when they won the franchise's first President Trophy, thanks to a San Jose loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche last night. Please join Hockey Mom in a toast (albiet with coffee as it is early morning) to congratulate the boys on this shining occasion!
The President's Trophy gives the Caps home ice advantage throughout the playoffs and tops off what has been a brilliant regular season (yes, of course we all have our eyes on that big post-season prize). Some of the other notable milestones the team has recorded this season include setting the franchise record for wins (51) and points in a season (114), as well as wins (23) and points on the road (53). Let's keep this train rolling and our focus on that bigger silver statue that awaits the league's ultimate champion - meanwhile congratulations Caps!
