Penguins Beat Capitals in Decisive Game 7 Behind Marc-Andre Fleury Shutout
The defending Stanley Cup champions are still alive.
The Pittsburgh Penguins went into the Verizon Center on Wednesday and earned a 2-0 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series. Pittsburgh lost two straight after seizing a 3-1 lead but redeemed itself with a critical performance on the road, spearheaded by goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.
As for Washington, the defeat means more of the same considering it hasn’t advanced past the second round since the 1997-98 season, when it lost the Stanley Cup Final.
