Scouting the Capitals

By The Tribune-Review
Sunday, February 18, 2007

Washington Capitals (23-26-9) at Penguins (31-17-9)

When and where: 3:30 p.m. today at Mellon Arena

TV/radio: NBC/105.9 FM

Probable goaltenders: Jocelyn Thibault (2-5-2, 3.29 GAA); Brent Johnson (4-7-4, 3.72 GAA)

Notable: The Capitals have lost 11 of their last 15 games and are coming off a 3-2 shootout loss Thursday to the Tampa Bay Lightning. They'll also be without starting goaltender Olaf Kolzig for at least three weeks after the perennial starter suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee during Monday's practice. ... Alexander Semin hit the 30-goal mark for the Capitals against the Lightning. ... The Penguins and Capitals last met in a surprising 2-0 defensive battle that the Penguins won Feb. 3. ... Five of the NHL's top six goal scorers age 22 and under will be on the ice today: Ovechkin (34), Semin (30), Evgeni Malkin (28), Sidney Crosby (26) and Jordan Staal (24). Carolina's Eric Staal is the sixth, with 24 going into yesterday's game.
