A Quiz: Test Your Knowledge about “Penguitals”

How well do you know the players who have seen both sides of the rivalry?

NHL: Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

When the Washington Capitals signed Conor Sheary to a one-year deal on December 22, it marked the third former Penguin acquired since last February who is expected to play for the Capitals this season.

By our count, when Sheary suits up for opening night he will be the 72nd player to have dressed for both the Caps and the Penguins (a total which also includes Daniel Sprong and Justin Schultz, should they both make the opening-night roster as well) – 68 skaters and four goaltenders.

So we’ve given you Sprong, Schultz, and Sheary... how many other players can you name who have played on both sides of this longtime rivalry?

  • 0-10: Go eat a cheesesteak, ya Flyer fan
  • 11-30: You may be experiencing some selective amnesia. We understand.
  • 31-50: Not bad but perhaps you need more half-smokes and Primanti’s in your diet.
  • 51-65: Joe Beninati and Mike Lange goal calls are your ringtones, aren’t they?
  • 66-72: ...Mike Vogel, is that you?

So... how’d you do?

[Ed. Note: Tomas Vokoun also played for both teams but we had some of that selective amnesia and didn’t include him. Oops!]
