Washington went to Pittsburgh for Game 6 and picked up an impressive 5-2 win on Monday. The series is now at 3-3. Washington is now 62-22-10 overall and 35-9-3 at home while Pittsburgh is 57-24-12 overall and 22-17-7on the road.

The Capitals dominated Game 6, taking a 5-0 lead on their way to a 3-goal victory. T.J. Oshie started the scoring in the first period and Andre Burakovsky added a goal in the second period. He would score again in the third, joining John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom. Pittsburgh never pulled Marc-Andre Fleury, but he stopped just 21 shots. Braden Holtby only faced 18 shots, stopping 16 of them.

Bet on Penguins vs. Capitals

I haven’t had a great time with this series. Usually Washington is the team to establish an early series lead and then choke. This time around, the Penguins appear to be doing that. Still, the pressure is now back on Washington for Game 7. The Capitals are at home and many expect them to finish things off. However, Washington is just 4-10 all-time in Game 7s. With the Capitals so heavily favored, I don’t want to risk my money on them. The Penguins have won multiple games in Washington already, so I think it’s within reason that they can do it again as a big underdog.
