I like to think that the headline photo captured Brett Connolly dancing. It’s Friday and we’ve got hockey, so let’s dance.
The first place Washington Capitals travel to Pittsburgh tonight to take on the third place Penguins. Seeing as these two teams don’t have much of a history and aren’t family with each other, this will be a good chance to get acquainted. For Caps fans, it’s a rare chance to get to watch players such as Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel, and Evgeni Malkin.
