Saturday, April 24, 2021, Washington, D.C. swept Long Island in a “baseball-hockey” doubleheader.” It’s only the third time the Nationals/Capitals played the Mets/Islanders on the same day. It’s also the first to take place in the same area.
Nationals 7 Mets 1
Location: Citi Field, Flushing Meadows
Capitals 6 Islanders 3
Location: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale
Since the MLB and NHL regular seasons typically only overlap a little in the spring, these matchups have been rare. The Nats have only been around in their current incarnation since 2005 and this only started happening in 2019. It’s now happened each year since, though the most recent were due to COVID-19 schedule changes.
