Washington Capitals Release Regular-Season Schedule

Posted on June 22, 2014 by Elliott Smith

The Washington Capitals announced their 2014-15 regular-season schedule June 22, a slate highlighted by a season-opening home game Oct. 9 against Montreal, the Jan. 1 Winter Classic contest against the Chicago Blackhawks and a game on Super Bowl Sunday against the St. Louis Blues.

The Caps will have four home stands of at least three games, with a five-game stretch at Verizon Center from March 5-15. On the flip side, they will have eight stretches of at least three road games, with a season-high four-game journey away from Washington, D.C., taking place Feb. 11-17.

Some games of note for Washington include the visit from the Pittsburgh Penguins, who will arrive for the first time Jan. 28. The defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings will make their lone appearance in D.C. Feb. 3, while new coach Barry Trotz will get a visit from his former team, the Nashville Predators, March 28.

Washington will have a healthy slate of weekend games, with 19 contests on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. It will also have games on the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 28 versus the New York Islanders); New Year's Day (versus Chicago); and Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 1 versus St. Louis), the seventh straight season the Capitals have hosted a game that day.

The team, in a press release, stated that venue for the Winter Classic was yet to be determined; although it is widely thought the game will be played at Nationals Park. Ticket information and uniform designs will be released during the coming months.
