If the Toronto Maple Leafs defeat the New York Islanders in regulation on Sunday, Washington will clinch a playoff spot, marking its eighth consecutive trip to the postseason.
The Capitals (42-23-10) sit in the second Wild Card spot with 94 points, leading the Islanders by 15 points with seven games left in the regular season. Washington moved within three points of Pittsburgh for third in the Metro with Saturday’s 8-4 win over the Canadiens.
