Capitals hire Stanley Cup-winning coach Peter Laviolette

Peter Laviolette sees the Washington Capitals as another opportunity to take a team to the Stanley Cup Final and try to win it all again.

The Capitals see Laviolette as the experienced, steady hand who can help them contend for another title in what could be the final few years of their championship window.

Washington made Laviolette the first Stanley Cup-winning coach hired in the franchise's 46-year history on Tuesday - and only the second with previous NHL head coaching experience during the Alex Ovechkin era.
