With the NHL’s return to the schedule this weekend, many fans have been hoping to see the Fender-Parallel Universe, which was originally created in 2015, return for a second season.
The NHL announced on Friday that the two-time Stanley Cup champions would take on the Washington Capitals in the third game of the series.
The league announced on Twitter on Friday night that the Caps had clinched their first playoff berth since 2010.
The Capitals had lost their past four games to the Flyers and Blackhawks, who both reached the Stanley Cup Final last year.
Washington has not won a playoff series since 2006, when it defeated the Los Angeles Kings in seven games.
The Caps were in a battle for their first home playoff series victory since the 1994-95 season, when they defeated the Dallas Stars in six games.
Ahead of the Caps’ trip to Washington, they were without forward Scott Hartnell, who is on injured reserve with a broken right hand.
Washington has lost two straight games to Philadelphia and Detroit, and has lost five straight overall.
