Braden Holtby's third shutout win of the season was the highlight of the night from Pittsburgh. Washington won on goals from Eric Fehr and Marcus Johansson in their first matchup with the Penguins this season.
Both teams traded chances in the middle frame but neither could dent the twine. Washington had two power play chances but once again got nothing from them. The Capitals outshoot their hosts by five with twenty minutes left to play.
