Alex Ovechkin had a secondary assist but once again made little impact on Sunday's game. (Yahoo!)
The Washington Capitals were spanked on home ice Sunday afternoon by the Pittsburgh Penguins, falling 6-3. After falling behind twice, Washington tied the game twice before Pittsburgh pulled away with three goals in the second period, two of which came in a little over half a minute. Tomas Vokoun, making his first start in Washington since being traded in June, was very good, despite one error, and proved to many that the Penguins have an excellent goaltending tandem. With the loss, Washington is now 2-6-1 on the season and near the NHL basement.
As with all Penguins-Capitals affairs, this one got off to a blistering start, with Chris Kunitz and Mike Green trading goals in the first five minutes of the game. Following the two early goals, the pace did not slow down at all, with more chances arriving for both teams. Just before the midway mark of the period, Pittsburgh t...

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In a Super Bowl Sunday matinee that featured superstars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin, it was Chris Kunitz who stole the spotlight, scoring a hat trick to send the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-3 victory over the Washington Capitals. Paul Martin, Matt Cooke and Kris Letang also scored for the Penguins, who are on their first three-game winning...
He was involved in two of the highest profile trades in Penguins history. What’s more, he’s ranked sixth on the team’s all-time list of highest scoring defensemen. Yet many Steel City hockey fans seem to have all but forgotten Moe Mantha, who arguably was the team’s best blue-liner at the dawn of the Mario Lemieux era.
The son of Moe Mantha, Sr., a minor-league defenseman...

The Washington Capitals will welcome the Pittsburgh Penguins to Verizon Center this afternoon for their traditional Super Bowl Sunday matinee game. Pittsburgh, who won their last game against the Devils 5-1 on Saturday, are 5-3-0 for ten standings points; this...
This might be the easiest goal John Carlson will ever score in his NHL career. Carlson dumped the puck in off the glass, hoping to get the puck in deep so his team could make a line change. Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun left his crease, ready to play the puck behind the net only to find the puck had taken an awkward bounce off a stanchion, sending it directly at the now empty...
While the Pittsburgh Penguins dominated the New York Islanders for the better part of five seasons, they haven't been able to keep up of late.
The surging Penguins try to avenge last week's loss to the Islanders as these clubs meet again Tuesday night at Nassau Coliseum.

Separate and distinct from the scoreboard verdict, there was a disquieting vibe to Super Sunday’s matinee tilt between the Penguins and Capitals. I sat down low in Verizon Center for it, and I didn’t like the vibe at all.
This game is a special tradition on our hockey calendar. While there are a handful of other games this day, Pittsburgh and Washington own Super Bowl Sunday...
