The Washington Capitals have lost complete control of their best-of-seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins took both Game 1 and 2 in D.C. and the series is now headed to Pittsburgh for the next two games. The Penguins have outplayed the Capitals in every facet of the game, and after completing the two-game sweep at the Verizon Center to start the series, their fans felt the courage to overtake part of the city as well.
Following Saturday’s 6-2 Pittsburgh win, Penguins fans celebrated the win across the street from the Verizon Center on the steps of the National Portrait Gallery. The scene adds insult to injury for a Capitals team that appears destined to lose to their hated rivals for the 10th time in 11 playoff series, if they don’t somehow turn things around.
