10-unit Play Take #18 Pittsburgh Penguins over Washington Capitals (8:05pm EST) If you watched the first two games of this series, there's simply no question who the better team is. The Pittsburgh Penguins dominated the action for the better part of both games, especially in Game 2. The Pens have outshot the Caps 80-59 overall in the series and have had way more high danger scoring chances so far. Yes, the series is tied and both were one-goal margins, but final scores are often deceiving. Now the series shifts to Pittsburgh, where you could potentially see things get even more one-sided. The Penguins were a strong 26-11-4 during the regular season at home. Evgeni Malkin missed some time down the stretch during the regular season, but he returned a couple of games ago and is finding his rhythm to make their offense even more potent. Braden Holtby was one of the best goaltenders in the league this season, but I don't think the Capitals can count on him to shut down the Pittsburgh offense by himself. There have just been way too many good shots fired so far in this series by the Pens. Washington is also a man down with defenseman Brooks Orpik suspended for the next three games for his vicious hit in Game 2. With Pittsburgh firing on all cylinders right now, it's hard to see the Capitals staying with them. Take the Penguins as our Playoff Game of the Year tonight as we look for our 10th winner in 11 selections.
