Know the Enemy:
 
 
 
The Caps are here for one final regular season game.
The second last regular season game in Igloo history.
 
Washington is 3-0 against the Penguins this year.
They lead the league standings by approximately one billion points.
 
The road to a second straight Stanley Cup will likely go through the Capitals.
 
There's also that Sid/Alex storyline that no one ever talks about.
 
Crosby leads the league in goals with 47.
Ovechkin is right behind him with 46.
 
The winner of tonight's game will not be awarded the Stanley Cup.
The Penguins lost the season series to the Capitals last year, but they beat them when it mattered.
Both teams have already qualified for the playoffs.
What happens tonight technically means nothing.
 
However, a win tonight would definitely be sweet.
 
Especially while we're battling with New Jersey for the Atlantic division title.

Semyon Varlamov will be in net for the Caps.

 

 


 
 
 
 
He's had a rough year, but we think he's got at least one more big win left in him.

 
Do it.
 

Go Pens.
