Have the Caps ever beat the Penguins in a playoff series? It sure doesn't seem like it.
One time, in 1994. The Penguins have won 9 of 10 playoff series against the Caps, including the last 7 in a row. And in each of the five years they won the Stanley Cup, they beat Washington along the way. So it's a huge series for both teams, but then again every playoff series is huge.
