On a night when Nicklas Backstrom was honored before the game for his 600th career assist, we had ourselves a little Capitals-Penguins fun!

With the Caps down a man just over halfway through the frame, Dmitry Orlov trickled a weak backhand treacle that dribbled directly to Pittsburgh’s Jack Johnson in the slot. Johnson slid the puck over to Sidney Crosby, and Sid the Skid paddled it home to make it 1-0 Pens after twenty.

Second period ahead...
