The Washington Capitals are heading to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 20 years -- and fans are losing their minds. This is the first championship appearance for a D.C. sports team since 1998. The Washington Capitals, led by captain Alex Ovechkin, will be playing Game 1 on Monday against the Golden Knights.
