The Penguins are reeling on a seven-game losing streak to drop to 4-6-2 on the season. Pittsburgh had started things out looking like a contender in the East with wins in four of five games. The Penguins rank 26th in goals allowed per game and on the penalty kill, which has been the major issue this season.
The Capitals ended a four-game skid with a 5-4 win over the Edmonton Oilers at home on Monday night. The Capitals are 6-6-2 on the season and four points ahead of the Pens at the bottom of the Metro Division standings. Washington has been solid on special teams but are struggling to score at even-strength, ranking 21st in goals per game at 2.86.
