Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 11 – Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals (2-7-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (7-3-0)

ROOT, NHLN-US. CSN-DC – 7:00 pm/et

Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA

This feels almost exactly like the kind of game that the Penguins overlook, doesn't it? The struggling Capitals visit Pittsburgh. The Penguins have won four-in-a-row. The Pens have a big home-and-home with the Devils coming up and they just dispatched of the Capitals on Sunday. On the other hand, the Caps are desperate for a win as they sit in 15th-place in the East and 30th in the entire league. Hopefully we're wrong.

Happy October 19th.

Season Series: 1-0-0

Last meeting that counted: February 3, 2013. Penguins won 6-3.

What we said in our recap:

The game was different from what we've seen so far. It was high-intensity, but then everyone realized how big of a mess the Caps are. They look like a team just thrown together. And why in the world did they ever fire Bruce Boudreau? Maybe the team is just uncoachable.

It's a big win because it was against Washington.
