Playoffs[edit]

Patrick Division Semi-finals[edit]

Washington vs. New York Islanders[edit]

Game 5 of this series was marred by a vicious check on the Islanders' leading scorer, Pierre Turgeon, by the Capitals' Dale Hunter, moments after Turgeon scored a third-period goal to put the game and the series out of reach for Washington. Hunter received a 21-game suspension for the hit, which carried over into the 1993–94 season.
