WASHINGTON — Somewhat lost among the noise of other D.C. sports was the start of the Capitals season.
But keep in mind, this is a Capitals team that has a 101-44-19 record over the past two seasons, and it finished with a league-best 120 points last season, 11 more than any other team.
So if nothing else, take solace in two things, D.C. sports fans: First, this team is pretty darn good. And second, they’re such good buddies. Just look at the camaraderie!
That closeness is what makes the above “Caps House” video — a take on the theme from the show “Full House” set to the 2016-17 Capitals team — so great. It wouldn’t work with a team that didn’t know and love each other. But much of this team has grown up together, and the bonds are real.
That’s something, right?
