Penguins vs Capitals. 7:30pm. Verizon Center. 1.11.2012

We should win by around 4-1.

Penguins are useless birds who can't fly.

Go Caps, stick a fork in em.

TV: NBCSN
Radio: 1500AM, 820AM, XM and Caps Radio Network
Pre-Game: Pre-Cap Podcast at 2 p.m., Two-Man Advantage at 5 p.m., John Walton’s one-on-one audio with Dale Hunter at 5 p.m., all on washingtoncaps.com.

Pittsburgh Penguins (21-16-4)
Washington Capitals (21-17-2)

Quote:
Two nights after finishing off a fruitless West Coast trip with losses in San Jose and Los Angeles by identical 5-2 scores, the Capitals return to the friendly confines of Verizon Center to start a four-game homestand, their longest to date this season. Washington will have a five-game homestand from Feb.28-March 8, its longest overall in 2011-12.

First up are the Pittsburgh Penguins, in town on Wednesday night. In most recent seasons, a Capitals-Penguins meeting in mid-January would be a marquee match-up featuring two of the league’s top teams, rosters rife with stars on both sides. Both clubs have had more than their share of struggles lately, both on the ice and in the infirmary.

We should, but will we? Two teams that don't know how to win = an OT game in my books.

I would have thought this would be the one team the Caps play where Caps fans on both sides of the aisle (Capsareawesome/Capsareterrible) could just cheer against the *other* team.

That said, the Caps always get up for the Pens. 5-2 good guys.

Did anything come out of that practice sighting of Neal yesterday, amid claims that he's not as badly injured as originally thought?

EDIT: Seems he's playing, as he played 16:41 last night.

Just a bruise. Played 16 minutes last night in a 5-1 loss to Ottawa.

Will you stop posting **** that you make up as of its ****ing news. There is no update on Backstrom starting tonight. He remains day to day until the team clarifies his status.

nothing official on green either. its just common sense, bud. this team doesnt clarify these things. whyno's tweets say green absent "as expected" and then backstrom absent "not a surprise". if you disagree, its ok with me. just say so. the rest isnt necessary.

#Caps lines: Ovechkin-Johansson-Semin, Knuble-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Halpern-Ward, Hendricks-Perreault-Beagle.

Orlov and Kundratek paired.

Tarik El-Bashir
Potential #Caps D pairings: 27-74; 44-6; 81-36 (Kundratek). Nos. 4 and 55 are out there, too.

Looks like Schultz and Erskine to be scratched.

You said nothing about Whyno, which is the point. It's impossible to tell whether the definitive statements that you make are actual news or idle speculation from the desk of txpd. Which the defeats the purpose of reading a news consolidating message board.

I'm surprised Erskine doesn't seem to be getting any favors from Dale and JJ.

They seem to really like puck moving defensemen with an offensive edge.

not really an endorsement of erskine either. its ugly for both of them. orlov and tk are going to make for an interesting view. vokoun(or whoever the goalies is...no announcement has been made and its unclear who the starter will be.....bdf....is that better?) is going to have an interesting time when they are on the ice

I think Erskine is still struggling with the shoulder, so him getting a scratch isnt that big a deal to me. Plus he's a 6th or 7th d man anyways.

Schultz...at $2.75...should be playing...but isn't. Big giant soft piece of garbage. Come on Chicago. You know you want to.

i think its mobility. hunter wants to play man to man and a defenseman has to be able to chase the forwards and keep up to play man to man.

tk is 190lbs.

Nicklas Backstrom placed on IR retroactive to last Tuesday

Stephen Whyno
Backstrom on IR retroactively means he could be activated at any time. IR is 7 day minimum. Gives roster space for Kundratek

Backstrom to IR retroactive to 1/4, now there's a surprise


Orlov Kundratek pairing .... on paper that's scary seeing the two paired together.

Of note, Orlov and Kundratek only played in the same Hershey game once this season on 11/13 vs Bridgeport.

I was thinking maybe they'd pair Kundratek with Hamrlik for the vet/rookie pairing plus the Czech aspect.

Kundratek is Czech so should help in terms of goalie/dman communications, one would hope.
