Game #37 - vs Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals (14-19-4, 32 pts) at Pittsburgh Penguins (18-16-2, 38 pts)

The Pens get back to it tonight at the Igloo against the Caps. The Caps have been struggling, losing four of the past six. The only two games they won in that span were a pair of 3-2 wins against Tampa Bay. The Dolts are the only team in the east that might be worse than the Caps.

Having said that, the Caps are just 6 points out of the 8th playoff spot. The Eastern conference is a land of mediocrity this year, with only the Sens and Devils being more than 7 games over .500 (the top 5 in the West are at least 7 games over).

This is a game the Pens need. They need to get back over .500 at home. They desperately need the two points, especially since they don't seem to be able to win against anyone in their own division. They also need to get their special teams going in the right direction, and the Caps are a good opponent to do that against.

I'll be at the game tonight, hopefully with my camera.

Let's Go Pens!
