The Washington Capitals return to the ice Wednesday night in a match-up against the New York Rangers. The Caps are looking to halt a losing streak.
For the third year in a row, the Washington Capitals will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Washington lost the last two series, but this year feels different.
After Monday night's thrilling 6-3 win, the Washington Capitals have clinched their series against the Columbus Blue Jackets and secured their spot in the second round against - who else? The Pittsburgh Penguins.
Alex Ovechkin's prediction that his team would go to Columbus and win two straight games was realized as the Capitals destroyed the Blue Jackets 4-1 to tie the Stanley Cup playoff series at 2-2. The teams head back to Washington.
For a team that's had trouble with lesser opposition, the just-finished road trip is a sign that the Washington Capitals are moving in the right direction.
