Re: Pens Tidbits
Penguins vs Capitals tonight on Versus at 7:00 PM.
This is a pretty scary game. While we dominated the Caps for the most part last season, they have won five of their last six games, including games against the Stars, Sabres, and Sens. On top of that they have been playing with some high intensity. I'm sure they will send that bum Brashear out to jump on Malkin and Crosby, we will need Thorburn, Ruutu and Petro to do the same to Ovechkin.
Going to be a close one in my opinion. 5-4 PENS.
Penguins are 1-5 in past six games at Washington. ... RW Michel Ouellet does not have a goal in seven games. ... Road power play ranks eighth in NHL, with conversion rate of 18.4 percent.
Capitals have gone 7-6-2 at home. ... Ex-Penguins RW Matt Bradley has three goals, all unassisted. ... Are 8-3 against opponents who had 100-plus points last season.
Hidden stat: Capitals have outscored their opponents, 10-4, during the final minute of periods
