Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: the Caps are leaving the bubble after a 4-0 loss to the Islanders last night.
Your not-so-savory breakfast links:
- In case you want to relive last night, check out recaps and postmortems from WaPo (and again), NHL, NBCSW (and again, and again), TSN, AP, ESPN, Sportsnet, RMNB, and NoVA Caps (and again).
- The latest episode of Japers’ Rink Radio was recorded pre-Game 5, but you should still give it a listen if you haven’t yet. [Rink]
- Ready to get emotional about Braden Holtby? Me neither. [NBCSW]

Stanley Cup Final: Sept. 20 – Oct. 2, estimated.
2020 NHL Draft: Oct. 6
Start of Free Agency: Oct. 7, or seven days after the Stanley Cup Final
Start of Training Camps: Nov. 17
Start of 2020-21 NHL season: Dec. 1
Finally, thank you to everyone who followed along with us here at the Rink during this weird, wacky season. It sure was a wild ride, wasn’t it?
