The Washington Capitals dropped a 3-0 decision to the New York Islanders on the final day of the NHL regular season. The game was meaningless to the Capitals and we now know that the boys will be taking on the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round of the playoffs.
The Caps out-shot the Isles 29 to 24.
A player with more 1,000 career games on his NHL odometer has finished as the League's goal-scoring leader 3 times. Here's the list:
