Things did not look good for the Capitals after two games.
Facing a 0-2 series hole after losing both games in Washington, it looked like it could be an early summer. The Caps were going to be the first team to ever lose a series in the playoffs to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
But the Caps rallied.
Washington won the next four games and turned what looked like it would be another postseason disaster into a postseason triumph.
Only once in franchise history had the Caps rallied from a 0-2 deficit and only once had the Caps won four straight games to win a series. They managed both against the Blue Jackets.
