Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins shows stable results throughout the season. Sullivan’s players are firmly entrenched at the top of the Eastern Conference standings. At the moment they occupy the third position, 80 points on their account.

They gave away an amazing series of three home victories, then went on the road and suffered a devastating defeat from Toronto Maple Leafs (0-4). Surprisingly, this was one of the few fights in which the Penguins couldn’t hit their opponents’ goal. Everything was to go smoothly in the next game with Buffalo, but the Penguins came out unprepared for the match and already in the starting period missed three pucks. As a result, they lost with the score 2-5, although the double was noted by Evgeniy Malkin.

We should not forget that the club from Pennsylvania has one of the most powerful attacking lines. They have such players in their lineup as: Sidney Crosby, Eugeni Malkin, Bryan Rust – all of them are among the best strikers in the league.

Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals gave a great start to the regular season, and for a long time headed the Eastern Conference standings, but now it has begun to decline. To date, the club is ranked 4th, with 80 points in the asset. Throughout the regular season the Capitals showed a very insecure game in defense, but it was offset by their powerful attack. In extreme matches, Todd Reirden’s players have sharply reduced their performance, the team leaders stopped scoring points.

Washington lost four games in a row for the first time this season. The Capitals had a great chance to rehabilitate themselves in the game with Montreal, but they did not take advantage of it and lost in the overtime 3-4, and in the next meeting with New Jersey Todd Reirden’s boys had several opportunities to distinguish themselves in the power play and finish the meeting in their favor, but in the end they themselves earned a minority and conceded in the last minutes, losing 2-3. We remind you that Aleksander Ovechkin made the 700th puck.

Penguins vs Capitals Prediction

In our opinion, the game will not turn out to be rich in goals, as both teams have recently had problems with attack.

The Capitals can play well on their court, but the Penguins are usually not doing so well on the road.
