Game Thoughts: I am anxiously awaiting this one! The Pens won a thriller yesterday in Philly, 5-4… thanks to Biron’s gaffe with 2+ minutes to go. Washington lost at home on Friday, so I expect them to play much better today. The stars usually shine when these two meet. I don’t think the Pens will be able to pull off back-to-back wins this weekend, but they’ll force the game to overtime. Enjoy this game, everyone!!
Prediction: Capitals 4, Penguins 3 (SO) The rest of tonight’s predictions: Avalanche over Hurricanes Bruins over Lightning Blackhawks over Wild Rangers over Maple Leafs
