Capitals limp into a rivalry game with the Penguins

The Washington Capitals are limping while heading into this game with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Caps are fresh off a hard fought 3-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. The team has a record of 1-2-0 during a three-game west coast road trip. This is also a rivalry game for the Caps, which makes it a very important game. The two teams are also tied for a wildcard spot with 56 points a piece.

The team has lost two straight games. Out of 14 games this month, the team has lost seven this month. For a team fighting for a playoff spot, losing seven games, is not a good trait to have. While the team has been struggling, they have been struggling with injuries, and switching lines almost every game.

Most eyes will be on Sidney Crosby, and Alex Ovechkin who are the two biggest stars on the two teams. Ovi was taken with the first overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, while Crosby was taken first overall in 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Crosby has a career total of 540 goals while Ovi has scored 811 goals.
