The Stanley Cup Finals are within sniffing distance, but the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals must do battle in game 1 of the second round in the playoffs in a must see game from the Verizon Center on Apr. 28. It’s going to be a hell of a fight between two evenly matched teams, but only one can make it through. Who will it be? Click down for the live stream to find out!
Now this is a real head-to-head battle of who’s better. Penguins star Sidney Crosby and the Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin have long been the faces of the NHL. But rather than look for individual honors, and out-doing each other on the ice, they will play like the team players they are and do what’s great for their respective franchises.
But that also means these could expect some rough treatment on the ice, with Alex likely to come into some rough-housing from Evgeni Malkin on the Penguins, who is his Russian international counterpart. It’ll be fascinating to see how Alex takes to that kind of treatment.
Pittsburgh were in ruthless form in game 5 of their round 2 game, smashing the Rangers 6-3 on Apr. 23 to sweep the series 4-1. They will be hoping for plenty more goals again.
