Game 5 in a critical 2-2 series is tonight for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. The winner is a step closer to moving on, and the loser will have to face the prospects of an elimination game on Monday night in Pittsburgh. This one is in D.C., where the Pens are 4-2 these past two seasons in the playoffs. They’ll need to win at least one more in the Caps home arena in order to keep the drive alive.
