Capitals

As the Washington Capitals started their quest for back-to-back, the memories from last spring still lingered in the minds of fans who finally got to see Washington win their first Cup championship after 44 years.

It's hard to move forward and put those moments in the past, especially given the circumstances, but the Capitals managed to do so this season. And their playoff hype video shows just how far the team has come since last year – and of course, gives us chills.

The video highlights the Cup championship and the parade, and then goes into the many accomplishments the Capitals saw this season, including the banner-raising ceremony, Nicklas Backstrom hitting 600 career assists, Ovechkin hitting the 50-goal mark for the eighth time in his career and more.

You can check out the video titled "New Day" below:

"New Day" is a fitting title as the Capitals continue to shift their focus to this postseason campaign and find a way past the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round.
