Capitals on ropes entering Game 3 at Penguins

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are looking for more of the same Monday when their playoff series resumes with Game 3 at PPG Paints Arena.

The details behind those plans, however, are vastly different.

The Penguins, while looking for improvements, simply want to add another victory to their resume after taking a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series by sweeping the first two games in Washington.
