The Ottawa Senators and Washington Capitals will face each other twice before the season ends in 10 days.

After that, they could be seeing a lot of each other.

As the Capitals arrive at Scotiabank Place Thursday, many are viewing this game -- and next Thursday's game in Washington -- as a possible preview for a first-round East playoff series between the No. 3-seed Caps and the No. 6-ranked Senators.
