And so it's set.

Capitals vs. Maple Leafs. Red, white and blue vs. blue and white. The first ever playoff series between the Caps and the Original 6 team from Toronto. Two long-suffering franchises looking to break a lengthy drought. Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom vs. Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Michael Nylander’s former team vs. Michael Nylander’s son. Age and experience vs. fresh-faced youth.

There'll be plenty of time to dive into those storylines and others in the days ahead, but first things first - the numbers. Below are the Caps team and individual stats for the three games this season against the Maple Leafs.
