The Washington Capitals were founded in 1974 and are part of the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals entered the NHL as an expansion team and endured one of the worst seasons in league history right out of the gate. They finished 8-67-5 in 1974-75, setting a record for the worst winning percentage in NHL history (.131). More than 40 years later, in 2018, the team won its first Stanley Cup title. The Capitals play their home games at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington, D.C.
