Washington Capitals vs Pittsburgh Penguins – Place a Bet with Sportingbet
Washington Capitals welcome two-time defending Stanley Cup holders Pittsburgh Penguins to the Capital One Arena on Saturday evening in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Round 2 playoff series.
The Penguins are 9-1 against the Capitals in their 10 previous post-season meetings and when they went 1-0 up in this series with a 3-2 victory in D.C. after being two goals down, it was looking ominous for the Caps. However, a 4-1 win in Game 2 at the Capital One Arena, followed by a 4-3 victory in Pittsburgh after a goal from Alexander Ovechkin with just over a minute of regulation time remaining, has put them in the driving seat.
The Penguins won’t relinquish their crown without a fight, but another narrow victory for the Caps looks the pick in this one as things stand.
Pick: Washington Capitals
