After dispatching the New York Rangers in just five games, the Penguins will have a much tougher task in their quest to advance past Round Two. The Capitals were the NHL's best team during the regular season, and though they had some difficulty finishing off the Philadelphia Flyers last round, they have all the necessary tools a Stanley Cup contender requires.
It's another matchup between Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, and it should be a long, entertaining series.
