Caps vs. Pens Recap: MAF's Shutout Clips Caps

Marc-Andre Fleury's 32 save shutout and 2-0 win leaves Washington pointless after 48 hours and two contests.


Caps vs. Pens 3rd Period Thread

Washington was oh-so-close to tying the contest but Evgeny Kuznetsov was rudely denied from five feet out by a spectacular save by Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. The Capitals were outshot again (by the exact same amount) so we're all anticipating a return on investment in the final frame.


Caps vs. Pens 2nd Period Thread

The Penguins started the first with some jump and twenty minutes ended with the home team leading by one thanks to a deflection from Jussi Jokinen ten feet outside of the crease. The Capitals trail in shots by seven - but that's by design.


Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Back to Halak Back-to-Back

Per Mike Vogel, Brooks Laich did not make the trip to Pittsburgh and will be replaced by Casey Wellman tonight, while Jaroslav Halak will take over crease duties for a third-straight game and second-straight night.

Aside from that, well... no morning skate means no clues on what lineup Adam Oates might throw out to wrap up the season set with the Penguins. But with a sudden lack of centers and a promise to "ease" Evgeny Kuznetsov into regular duty, here's one of about eighty billion possibilities for tonight's lines and defensive pairs:


Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin


Dustin Penner - Jay Beagle - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward


Evgeny Kuznetsov - Casey Wellman - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

Jack Hillen - Connor Carrick

...or something like that.

So that leaves Brooks Laich, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injuries, and Braden Holtby backing up Halak. Again.
