Being there is a good decision. The Capitals have played the Penguins in the second round of the playoffs three of the last four years, winning one of those series. The year they did win, 2018, they went on to win the Stanley Cup.
Update: According to the Penguins, Ovechkin was joined by the rest of his teammates to watch the game.
