The Metropolitan Division-champion Capitals will face the New York Islanders in the playoffs for the eighth time, and the first since Washington defeated the New York Islanders in seven games in 2015. The Capitals finished the 2019-20 season with a record of 41-20-8 record, claiming the Metropolitan Division for the fifth consecutive season. The Capitals became the eighth franchise in NHL history to win five consecutive division titles and the first since the Anaheim Ducks from 2012-13 to 2016-17. With 90 points in 69 games before the suspension-shortened 2019-20 season, the Capitals were again on pace to reach the 100-point mark.
