For the third-straight season, the Washington Capitals will face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Monday night, Washington beat Columbus 6-3 to advance to the second round and Alex Ovechkin scored two goals in the victory to ensure another playoff matchup against Sidney Crosby.

After the game, Ovi was asked about facing the Penguins again and it seems like he's looking forward to the challenge to say the least.


In the locker room, Ovechkin elaborated on what he said on the ice:

Based on what has happened the past two years (Penguins beating the Capitals and winning the Cup both times), we're sure Pens fans can't wait either.
