This Sunday the Penguins plays the Capitals in an epic journey to the Stanley Cup.  This match will marked the last time the two teams will play each other in the season.  So far the Capitals have beaten the Penguins this season but maybe it will change tomorrow.  This may not be an important game but it will be entertaining.  Get ready for fights, drama, and twists.

Penguins-Capitals

This classic rivalry dates back to the 80s but recently heated up with the battle between hockey superstars Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby (oh, I mean Crysby).  It all started in 1991 where they met in playoffs for the very first time.  The Penguins beat the Capitals in five games to move onto winning the Stanley Cup.  Every since the playoff face-off, the Caps and Pens have been far from friends.  

The Penguins are picking up some wins in the past week and this weekend is a big one.  First they play their arch nemesis the Philadelphia Flyers during an afternoon game on Saturday and then they head home to face off the Caps.  

With the Capital’s win against Carolina, the Washington Capitals have officially clinched a spot in the playoffs.  Standing as the number one team in the league, the Caps are bringing some heat to Pittsburgh this Sunday.  As a diehard Capitals raised in Maryland, I am routing for another W in Pittsburgh.
