The story of the rebranding and reemergence of the Washington Capitals Featuring original interviews with Capitals players, coaches, and staff from the past decade, including team owner Ted Leonsis, as well as the expertise of the NHLs most informed media personalities, Ted Starkeys Red Rising looks at how a chronically underachieving hockey franchise became a success on and off the ice in Washington, across North America, and around the world. Fueled by the arrival of charismatic Russian superstar Alexander Ovechkin, as well as gifted youngsters like Nicklas Backstrom and Mike Green, the Caps have transformed themselves from a team in danger of becoming the NHLs laughingstock pre-lockout, into an organization players, media, and fans respect and adore. Now rivaling the NFLs Redskins for the hearts of Washington fans, the Capitals are a dangerous contender, a true power that could bring the Stanley Cup to Americas capital.
