The Presidents’ Trophy-winning Washington Capitals will look to carry momentum from their stellar regular season into the Stanley Cup playoffs as they host the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night in Game 1 of their first-round series.
Just one of the previous seven Presidents’ Trophy winners went on to raise the Cup, while three — including the 2009-10 Capitals — bowed out in the first round.
The Flyers, meanwhile, have been one of the NHL’s hottest teams over the past month-and-a-half, going 17-7-3 over their last 27 games to nab the Eastern Conference’s second wild-card spot on the final weekend of the regular season.
