Don’t look now, but we just got finished wrapping up an entire decade of hockey when the clock struck midnight on January 1st, 2020.
The previous decade gave us as hockey fans so many lasting memories. The goals, the hits, the fights… and of course the saves.

The Capitals would go on to win Game 2 and, as they say, the rest is history.
