  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1994, "Don Beaupre became the Washington Capitals' All-Time leader in playoff wins, with his 18th, in a 4-2 win over the Rangers, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Beaupre passed Pete Peeters, who had won 17 playoff games for the Caps." Olie Kolzig came along a few years later and bested Beaupre's mark, ending up with 20 playoff wins, which is ten more than Semyon Varlamov currently has.
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Lawrence Nycholat and happy 54th birthday to Tony Cassolatto.
