An underdog topples the favorite

When the Capitals first debuted in 1974, few NHL teams found them to be worthy rivals. The Big Bad Bruins, led by legends like Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito, were happy to skate over them. However, in 1983 the Capitals made it to the playoffs, piquing the interest of the NHL. In 1990 the Capitals barreled into the Wales Conference finals to square off against the Bruins, but they fell to Boston in four games. Since then Washington has become a growing threat in the Eastern Conference. In 1998, after missing the playoffs the previous year, the Boston Bruins were eager to redeem themselves – only to be shunted from the competition by the Capitals. In 2012 the two faced off again in the first round of the playoffs, and again Washington emerged victorious.

Now, the tension between the two, stoked by these playoff showdowns, is reaching a fever pitch. Whether you're a diehard fan of the Boston Bruins or a loyal supporter of the Washington Capitals, it's time to join the fan frenzy at the arena.
