For the first time since the 2006-07 season, the Washington Capitals will not reach the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Capitals were mathematically eliminated from reaching the postseason Wednesday night when the Detroit Red Wings earned a point for their shootout loss in Pittsburgh and the Columbus Blue Jackets captured two with a win at Dallas. Those results gave each team 91 points, which is the maximum Washington could acquire if it was to win its final three games. But because the Capitals don’t hold the first tiebreaker of more combined regulation and overtime wins, they have been ousted from the race.
