The name is thought by some to derive from the Anglo-Saxon word _Stocc_ meaning log, tree trunk or wooden post. 'Stockton' could therefore mean a farm built of logs. This is disputed, because when the word Stocc forms the first part of a place name it usually indicates a derivation from the similar word _Stoc_, meaning cell, monastery or place. 'Stoc' names along with places called Stoke or Stow , usually indicate farms which belonged to a manor or religious house

National Hockey League
The NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE (NHL; French : _Ligue nationale de hockey—LNH_) is a professional ice hockey league currently comprising 31 teams: 24 in the United States and 7 in Canada. Headquartered in New York City , the NHL is considered to be the premier professional ice hockey league in the world, and one of the major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada . The Stanley Cup , the oldest professional sports trophy in North America, is awarded annually to the league playoff champion at the end of each season . The National Hockey League was organized on November 26, 1917, in Montreal , Quebec after the suspension of operations of its predecessor organization, the National Hockey Association (NHA), which had been founded in 1909 in Renfrew, Ontario . The NHL immediately took the NHA's place as one of the leagues that contested for the Stanley Cup in an annual interleague competition before a series of league mergers and folds left the NHL as the only league left competing for the Stanley Cup in 1926. At its inception, the NHL had four teams—all in Canada, thus the adjective "National" in the league's name. The league expanded to the United States in 1924, when the Boston Bruins joined, and has since consisted of American and Canadian teams

Washington Capitals
Red, white, blue MEDIA Comcast SportsNet Washington WRC (NBC 4) Federal News Radio (1500 AM) The Fan (106.7 FM) OWNER(S) Monumental Sports "> Capitals left-wing Errol Rausse chasing Boston Bruins defenseman Ray Bourque in 1979. The Capitals' inaugural season was dreadful, even by expansion standards. They finished with far and away the worst record in the League at 8–67–5. Their 21 points were half that of their expansion brethren, the Scouts. The eight wins are the fewest for an NHL team playing at least 70 games, and the .131 winning percentage is still the worst in NHL history. They also set records for most road losses (39 out of 40), most consecutive road losses (37), and most consecutive losses (17). Head Coach Jim Anderson said, "I'd rather find out my wife was cheating on me than keep losing like this. At least I could tell my wife to cut it out." Schmidt himself had to take over the coaching reins late in the season. (Only once in NHL history has another team even come close to matching this futility: the 1980–81 Winnipeg Jets finished with nine wins and 57 losses, but a relatively impressive 14 ties.) In 1975–76 , Washington went 25-straight games without a win and allowed 394 goals en route to another horrendous record: 11–59–10 (32 points)

British Hockey League
The BRITISH HOCKEY LEAGUE was the top-flight ice hockey league in the United Kingdom from 1980 until 1996 (with a short break between 1981 and 1982), when it was replaced by the Ice Hockey Superleague and the British National League . The league replaced three regional leagues: the Inter-City League in southern England, the English League North in northern England and the Northern League in Scotland. The league was sponsored by Heineken until 1993 and during this period was best known as the Heineken League. The league changed format several times. The top level Premier Division was formed in 1983, and a second tier Division One was formed in 1986, being split into North and South conferences for the 87/88 and 93/94 seasons. The third tier Division Two was founded in 1987, renamed English Division One the following season and split from the league in 1992 and later dissolved. In 1996 a major reorganization of the league structure led the two remaining divisions to split into different leagues; resulting in the dissolution of the British Hockey League and the creation of the Ice Hockey Superleague to replace the premier division, and the British National League to replace division 1, respectively. Durham Wasps and Whitley Warriors were the only two teams to consistently feature in the top division of the BHL throughout the duration of the league's history
