Finally, A Win

Right after the Scouts finally got to play a home game, they were treated to a midnight flight to the District of Columbia for a tilt against the Capitals the next night. Perhaps buoyed by fan support and a valiant effort the night before, the Scouts collected their first ever win. Of course, it didn't hurt that the Capitals were fellow expansionees, and, well, the worst team in NHL history. Still, the win didn't come easily; the Scouts rallied from 0-2 and 2-4 deficits to prevail 5-4.

Sadly, the Scouts would have only 14 more victories to celebrate that season, and just 12 during their next (and last).
