The seventh-seeded Washington Capitals will travel to Boston to challenge the defending Stanley Cup Champion Bruins in the first game of their round one playoff series.

In the last five years, the Capitals have won the Presidents Trophy once and the Southeast Division Championship four consecutive times, ending that streak this season. However, they have been unable to make it past the Eastern Conference semifinals.
