After ousting the Columbus Blue Jackets (the fourth-ranked team in the league during the regular season) in five games, the Pittsburgh Penguins are moving on to face none other than long-time rival Washington Capitals in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Caps, a top team in the league at the conclusion of the 2016-17 regular season, recently finished a six-game playoff series in overtime against the Toronto Maple Leafs. This is the tenth time the two teams have met in the playoffs, with most recently being last year when the Pens came out on top after six games.
The Caps will have home ice advantage for the first two meetings of the second round against the Penguins on April 27 and April 29.
