Unlike in Game One, the Capitals were able to hold onto their multi-goal lead in the last game, evening up their series with the defending Stanley Cup champions. The scene now shifts to Pittsburgh as the Pens try to consolidate the home-ice advantage they’ve earned for the now five-game series.

A late goal from Mark Scheifele gave the Jets a chance to race out to a 2-0 lead in the series, but Kevin Fiala’s goal in double overtime set this Western Conference Semifinal up to match the hype it had going in.
