Longest Streak in How Long?

By Mark Solway | January 28th, 2010

When the final buzzer went at the Verizon Center on Wednesday night, the Caps had earned their eighth win in a row.

That may not seem like a massive number, but it’s the longest winning streak for Washington since they had ten straight wins in 1983-84 season – over 25 years ago. In fact, it equals their longest streak since 1989. Senior Writer Mike Vogl posted a great piece about that streak 21 years ago. There are some great Caps names from the past in the article – Dino Ciccarelli, Pete Peeters, Bob Rouse, Calle Johansson, Mike Ridley, and the late Doug Wickenheiser to name a few.

Check out Mike’s blast-from-the-past here.

Washington is now NINETEEN points clear of their next closest Southeast Division opponent. Wow.
