Since the Washington Capitals entered the National Hockey League back in 1974, the team has, for the most part, had the consistent support of a reasonably devoted fanbase. 

Yes, it's worth noting that D.C. is without question a town that supports its Redskins first, but at least since the 2004-05 NHL lockout, the Capitals have certainly made a case to be considered Washington's No. 2 team behind Robert Griffin III and the 'Skins. 

The volume of Capitals fans may not be nearly as great as one of the game's long-tenured franchises such as Detroit, Chicago, New York or any of the seven Canadian NHL teams, but this is a fanbase that has been on a drastic rise in terms of numbers and enthusiasm since Alex Ovechkin broke into the league in 2005-06. 

With that in mind, here's a look at the top five signs that you're a diehard Capitals fan.
