We knew the match-up, it was a matter of when.  The NHL finally told us Tuesday evening that the Pens and Caps second round series will begin Thursday at 7 in Washington D.C. with the rest of the schedule yet to be announced.

This year’s regular season four game series was split, the teams even split the pair of home games.  Pens won the first game in the nation’s capital and the Caps won the final game on April Fools’ Day in Pittsburgh.

The teams have met ten times previously in the post-season with the Pens winning nine of them.
