Raising the Banner!

October 10, 1998

The Time had come. At 7:06pm EDT, October 10, 1998, the Washington Capitals kicked off their 25th Season.

To remind the crowd of why the banner was awarded, a highlight video showed our favorite memories.

The Washington Capitals are the Eastern Conference Champions!

The 1998-99 roster was introduced, with the loudest cheers going to playoff hero Olie "Zilla" Kolzig and Captain Dale Hunter.
