Caps Take On The Pens

A few weeks back, the Caps hosted the Pens in the Verizon Center and walked away with a 2 point shutout. It was by the slimmest of margins, a 1-0 win. In the last three games, the Caps have been shutout twice. Once at home 3-0 and once on the road 3-0. Going into Sundays matchup, the Caps look to continue to correct their troubles on the road. On Wednesday night, the Caps blanked the Habs in Montreal providing a lot of hope for playing on the road. However, Friday night, they were back into bad habits. The penalty kill hurt them and they didn’t do anything on the powerplay. Sunday’s game should be a close one, considering the Caps always step up to the challenge of playing the Pens due to the rivalry.

It has not yet been announced who will be in the crease for the Caps on Sunday, but one has to assume it will be Neuvirth. He played great on Wednesday night, and he has great numbers against the Pens in his entire career of two seasons.

Maybe an anger filled, rivalry game will inspire the Caps to play good tomorrow and build off of that for road games the rest of this year. We shall see. Puck drop is set for 12:30 AM, so we should expect the game to start at 12:40 AM or so.

Until then.
