The Washington Capitals traveled up north to play the mustard colored flightless birds in their alliteratively named arena. This intense rivalry is always good for a nice blood pressure raising, test of the heart, body, mind, and soul.
Jakub Vrana got the Caps on the board first late in the first period with a wicked wrist shot over the shoulder of Matt Murray. Jake The Snake got on the board once more in the second. Jake Guentzel got the Pens back in it and Sidney Crosby tied the game only moments later.
Sidney Crosby got his second to give the Pens their first lead. Phil Kessel extended the lead. John Carlson pulled the Caps close. Empty netter from one of their Florida dudes.
Pens beat Caps 5-3.

Next up for the Caps is another date with the Flyers in Philly. You may remember the Caps jumping out to a 5-0 lead on the Flyers last week before the game ended a lot closer at 5-3. Always a good one between those two teams.
