Washington Capitals (2-0-0) vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (3-0-1)
TV: NHL Network for people outside Pittsburgh, ROOT sports for those in, CSN-DC
Unlimited news today. Quick recap:
Kunitz re-signed for two years.
MAF is out tonight. He is sick.
Malkin is a game-time decision. ( He'll be taking part in a ceremonial faceoff, so don't flip out if you see him, and then he doesn't play)
Some guy was cleared for "full contact." today
The Penguins have been horrible, at home, against the Caps for the last few years.
A.O has been way too quiet to start the season.
Only 1 point in two games. Lifetime, A.O. has 32 points in 24 games against the Pens.
He is a shocking +14 too.
The last time these two teams played, the Pens were just starting to settle into life without Malkin and Crosby. Actually, the day after the the Caps loss, the Pens pulled the trigger on the Neal / Gogo trade.
Who will score for the Caps:
- Jason Chimera. He has scored like 5,000 goals this season. Third line of the Caps is kind of beastly.
Who will score for the Pens
- James Neal. He is gaining confidence. Would love to see him roof one.
