Two huge high school hockey fans just went viral for a successful promposal which included a reference to the Caps and Penguins.
Phillip asked Megan to prom with a campy poster that read “taking you to prom would be like the Caps beating the Pens in the second round… unbelievable.”
The quip perfectly captures the Capitals postseason failure against the Penguins over the last several decades. According to Wikipedia, the Capitals have lost nine of ten playoff series against the Penguins. Pittsburgh has beaten Washington in the second round the last two seasons on their way to back-to-back Stanley Cups.
