The Last Time the Capitals Won in Dallas in Regulation...

It was 1995 and things were a lot different

The Caps got their first win in regulation in Dallas for the first time since 1995. Now that's a long time and the 90s were a very different place. Let's take a look back at what was happening that year:

  • The number one song of 1995 was Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio
  • Toy Story was the most popular movie
  • The biggest TV shows were E.R., Seinfeld and Friends
  • Favorite snacks include Funyuns, Push Pops, Dunkaroos
  • Blue M&Ms were invented 
  • Ebay was launched
  • The DVD was invented
  • Brad Pitt hadn't met Jennifer Aniston yet and was dating Gwenyth Paltrow
  • Bill Clinton was president
  • Mario Lemieux led the NHL in goals with 69 (nice)
  • The Hartford Whalers still existed

You see, a lot has changed in the 24 years between regulation Caps wins in Dallas. 

Oh and I was 2 years old.
