Congratulations to the Washington Capitals for being the best regular season team in the NHL and winning their franchise first President's Trophy.
The Caps clinch with 114 points and 4 games left on the schedule. The only team that was close to upsetting the Capitals were the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks lost in overtime to the Colorado Avalanche tonight.
The Capitals are guaranteed home ice advantage throughout the post season, even in the finals. The Caps were the first team to wrap up their division and Conference in the league.
