ARLINGTON, Va. – The National Hockey League announced today the 2017 Stanley Cup Conference quarterfinals broadcast information between the Washington Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs, which begins Thursday, April 13 at 7 p.m. at Verizon Center. Games 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 will be televised on CSN and streamed live on CSNmidatlantic.com and the NBC Sports app. Broadcast information for Game 6 will be announced at a later date.
Washington will host Game 1, Game 2 and if necessary, Game 5 and Game 7 in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
CSN will surround all seven potential first-round games with more than two hours of live Capitals news, analysis and commentary with one-hour editions of Caps GameTime before games and expanded postgame coverage on Caps Extra and the new Caps Overtime.
All Capitals playoff games will broadcast on 104.7 FM, WFED 1500 and on the 24-hour radio channel, Caps Radio 24/7, devoted specifically to the Capitals. In addition to broadcasting all Capitals games, Caps Radio 24/7 will continue to provide instant news and access to the Capitals, including live game audio and exclusive Capitals playoff-related hockey content throughout the day. The channel is available through the Caps Mobile App by accessing the “Caps Radio 24/7″ button at the bottom of the home screen, through WashingtonCaps.com and also through TuneIn radio, a free app that helps people find and listen to music, sports, news and talk content on the web.
The Capitals led the NHL with a 55-19-8 record this season and captured the Presidents’ Trophy for the second consecutive season and the third time in franchise history. Washington recorded the second-most wins and third-most points (118) in a season in franchise history. In addition, the Capitals set franchise records in home wins (32) and regulation and overtime wins (53) this season. Washington has reached the 100-point mark in three consecutive seasons and leads the NHL in points (339) and wins (156) during that span. The Capitals qualified for the playoffs for the 27th time in franchise history and the ninth time in the last 10 seasons.
The Capitals and Maple Leafs met three times this season, with Washington posting a 2-1-0 record. This marks the first time the Capitals and Maple Leafs will meet in the postseason.
P.S. – The series probably would’ve started on Wednesday, but the Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing at Verizon Center that night.
