Capitals Sweep Season Series Against Penguins

-The Pittsburgh Penguins lost to the Washington Capitals 6-3 last night at the Mellon Arena. Sidney Crosby scored a goal and two assists while Alex Ovechkin scored two goals, including an empty netter. Crosby and Ovechkin are now tied for the league lead in goals with 48. Jordan Leopold scored two goals for Pittsburgh, giving him three with Pittsburgh. He has three goals in his last two games. Evgeni Malkin did not play because of an illness. Marc-Andre Fleury let in a few soft goals and only stopped 9 of 12 shots. He was pulled after Washington's third goal and was replaced by Brent Johnson. Johnson stopped 13 of 15 shots. Not good goaltending at all for Pittsburgh. Mike Knuble, who scored last night, had a goal in each game against Pittsburgh. He is a Penguins killer.

Next Game is Thursday against the New York Islanders at 7:30. It is also the final regular season game at the Mellon Arena.
