From Caps Instagram: “My name is Alex Ovechkin, I lead the nhl in goals.”
The Capitals have had the Penguins number so far this season, and that number is zero. In 120 minutes of hockey, Washington has outscored Pittsburgh seven goals to none.
But the Penguins of February 17 are healthier than previous versions, and Holtby has been averaging 3 goals against over the last 10 days. It’d be a nice trick to end the road trip with another blowout over a division rival, but the Caps are gonna have to bring the ruckus to get it done.
The lineup makes me think they might pull it off. Puck drop at 7 PM on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Johansson– Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich – Fehr – Ward
Beagle – Latta – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen

Kris Letang had a friendly chat w/ex-Penguins assistant Todd Reirden, now with Washington, outside the visiting dressing room. Still chummy.

Tonight’s episode of Parks & Recreation is titled The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show, so if I’m cranky tonight it’s because I’m missing that.
