The 1992–93 Washington Capitals season was the Capitals' 19th season of competition.

Offseason[edit]

Regular season[edit]

During the regular season, the Caps set a club record with nine 20-goal scorers, three of whom were defensemen (Sylvain Cote, Kevin Hatcher and Al Iafrate).[1]

Washington tied the Boston Bruins and the New York Islanders for the fewest short-handed goals allowed, with just 8.[2]

On Friday, November 13, 1992, the Caps lost on the road to the New Jersey Devils by a score of 3-0. It was the first time the Caps had been shut out in a regular-season game since Sunday, October 29, 1989 when they lost on the road to the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 1-0. Prior to their loss to the Devils, the Caps had gone 245 consecutive regular-season games without being shut out.[3][4][5][6]
