From 1986 to 1994 these teams played four intense and heated playoff series where three out of four times there was an upset. That was the formation of this rivalry.

1986-Rangers upset a very good offensive squad in their Cinderella run to the ECF.

1990-Caps out grind a Leetch-less Rangers who could have gone to the Cup Finals with their offense and goaltending alone but had a very shaky D. And $#@@@ John Druce.

1991-The Rangers were looking to go to the next level but the Caps took care of them. This led to Neil Smith shaking up the roster and getting rid of Kissio, Mullen, and of course signing Graves and making trades for Kerr, Messier, and Beuk.

1994-Rangers took care of business in the series that got chippier every game. We all remember the Tikannen and Dale Hunter "kiss."
