After a disappointing road trip, the Caps are back home at Verizon Center for five straight games. Tonight they’re matched up against salty Twitter user/long time rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Heading into tonight’s matchup, Coach Trotz has several lineup tweaks – though there’s no word yet on if #TopLineBeagle is back to being a #BottomLineBeagle. We can only hope.
Meanwhile, the Penguins come into tonight’s affair on three days rest after beating the tar out of the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 last Saturday. In contrast, this is the second game of another Caps’ back-to-back series. The flightless birds from Pittsburgh currently sit second in the Metropolitan division, two points above your Caps, and did some of that damage without Sidney Crosby to start the year. Sid The Kid is back though and has ten goals in 9 games. Tonight should be a barnburner.
Puck drop is at 7:30 on NBCSN. Pierre!
