The regular season has come to an end, and it’s official: the Capitals will begin their quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup with a first-round matchup against their Metropolitan rivals, the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The playoffs begin Wednesday, April 11, but we’ll have to wait until the following night before the first-ever postseason meeting between these two teams gets underway at Capital One Arena.

TV schedule has yet to be released and a few of the times are in flux, as we wait for the Bruins-Panthers game to wrap up the final seeding, but here’s the full schedule for Caps vs. Jackets:
