Sunday night, the Edmonton Oilers demolished (seriously, this isn’t an exaggeration at all) the Anaheim Ducks and forced the first Game Seven of the 2016-17 postseason. Monday night, the Washington Capitals have the chance to be the second team in the 2016-17 postseason to do so. All they have to do is win tonight in Pittsburgh. Simple.
The Capitals will need to play some impeccable hockey tonight against not only the disadvantage of being on the road, but also against the return of the HBK line.
Penguins lead the series 3-2.
Puck drop is at 7:30 PM on NBCSN. We’ll see you then.
