The Washington Capitals won their first round of the 2009 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, when they defeated the New York Rangers in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.

Everybody knows about the offensive power of the Capitals, and although the Rangers are not known as particularly offensively gifted, Washington held them to fewer shots on average than any other team in the first round. The Caps also got great goaltending out of their young NHL rookie Simeon Varlamov, who earned two shutouts during the series.

So, we know the team is ready. For the first time since 1998, the Washington Capitals are "Moving On" the Eastern Conference Semifinals. They will be facing the Pittburgh Penguins. Here's the schedule for the semifinals.

Triumph - "Moving On"
