Islanders, Capitals engage in another playoff series

Not much has gone according to plan in 2020, but the NHL playoffs are bringing at least one slice of normalcy: An Eastern Conference series between the Washington Capitals and New York Islanders.

The Metropolitan Division rivals and frequent playoff combatants will once again meet in the postseason beginning Wednesday afternoon, when the Capitals and Islanders face off in Game 1 of the quarterfinals in Toronto.

The Capitals, who led the Metropolitan and had the third-best record in the East when the regular season ended March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be the third seed after going 1-1-1 in round-robin play last week.
