2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Monday schedule, open thread, and how to watch
There is only one game on the docket tonight, but it should be a very good one.
The Penguins got off to a disappointing start to their series against the Capitals, losing the first tilt in a wild overtime period. However, they were able to come back in game two, edging their rivals 2-1 in regulation to even the series up as it shifted back to Pittsburgh.
Now, with a chance to take home ice advantage in the series, the Penguins will definitely want to get a win tonight, so that they have the opportunity to put their opponents on their heels before going back on the road.

Olli Maatta will not be playing for the Penguins tonight, but neither will Brooks Orpik for the Capitals, as he was suspended for his hit on the former. Whether or not there is any bad blood from that incident, we should be in for quite the game tonight.
