Pittsburgh Penguins (38-24-7, 83 pts) at Washington Capitals (32-29-8, 72 pts)
Moving the clocks forward an hour last night, combined with the early start to the game today means the Pens will feel like they're starting a hockey game at 11:30 AM EST. Hope they like to wake up early.
I'm not ready to wake up yet, so this will be short.
The playoff contenders are starting to distance themselves from the playoff pretenders in the East. The result of that, though, is that the Pens are just 8 points separate first from eighth. The Pens can ill afford to slide in the standings.
Let's Go Pens!
