It’s a Washington Capitals screaming eagle reverse retro gameday! Tonight the Caps will debut those beauties against the Pittsburgh Penguins in what is sure to be a big East Division matchup.
Coming off a win over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday afternoon, the Caps are looking to carry over the momentum that they started last Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
In that game against the Penguins last week, the Caps played their best game of the season.
The occasion also marked their first win of the season over their rivals. Alex Ovechkin (one goal, three assists) and Evgeny Kuznetsov (two goals, two assists) each lead the Caps this season in points against the Penguins.
