Earlier, I wrote about tonight’s Capitals-Penguins showdown. Now, it’s your turn to share your opinion.
We know the Caps have been playing strongly as of late, while the Penguins could be readying themselves for a surge. The game between these longtime rivals promises to unusually heated, as the Metropolitan Division lead is at stake.
The Capitals will have to find balance if they want to secure two points tonight. Between shutting down the offensively capable Penguins while scoring some goals of their own, there will be plenty to keep them busy. Let’s not forget goaltending, though. In the event of a defensive collapse, Braden Holtby must be prepared to make stellar saves. While Marc-Andre Fleury has shown weakness in the past, he’s been playing a phenomenal game thus far.
But who will come out on top: the Capitals or the Penguins? Vote below, and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
