As you're well aware by now, the Caps are in the Stanley Cup Final and will be taking on the upstart Vegas Golden Knights. Tickets and travel are obviously expensive, so if you want to watch the games in a fun, exciting environment with a large crowd, one of the DMV's local watch parties is probably your best bet.

How will you find the right watch party for you? That's why we're here. Below, we've compiled a list of some of your watch party options for Games 1 and 2 of the series, including one held by the Capitals at Capital One Arena. It's probably fair to assume that one will be the biggest.
