A lot is on the line for game 6 between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Capitals are looking to tie up the series and the Penguins are looking to punch their ticket to the third round. Washington managed to stay afloat with a game five win at home, but with the venue heading back to Pittsburgh, things may get dicey. The last thing the Penguins want to do is choke in this series, so the defending champions will give it their all tonight.
The Capitals have not been consistent at all in this series. While they were able to take away a win after back to back losses, their chances looked bleak after game four as the Penguins took a 3-1 series lead. Game five saw what seemed to be a reenergized Washington team as they were able to dominate the Penguins up and down the ice. But the Caps will have to copy their play if they want to keep their postseason alive. Washington has not made it to the Eastern conference finals since 1998, so a win tonight will force a game seven and hopefully turn things around for the Capitals.
With wins in game one and two, it looked like the Penguins were going to sweep the Capitals. However, after Crosby went down in game three, the Penguins lost some of their playoff magic. While they were still able to take away a game four win, a game five win has the Capitals inching closer and closer to forcing a game seven. With Crosby cleared to play in game six, the Penguins can close out this series and get ready to play the winner of the Rangers/Senators series. A nice rest and practice will give the Penguins and edge over their third round competitors, so with the home crowd cheering them on, it is up to the Penguins to finish the Capitals off.
