A statistical look at the season series between the Caps and the Jackets

And so it’s set.

Capitals vs. Blue Jackets. Red, white, and blue vs. blue, white, and red. The first-ever postseason meeting between the two squads... but certainly not the Caps’ first run-in with Jackets’ head coach John Tortorella. (Bring your ponchos.) A team that’s struggled to get out of the second round facing a team that’s never left the first. Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson vs. Artemi Panarin and Seth Jones.
