Pittsburgh vs Washington: can the "Capitals" take revenge?

On January 20, "Washington" will play with "Pittsburgh" again and will try to rehabilitate from the past defeat. Will the "Capitals" succeed to prevail? You will find it out in our prediction. 

Pittsburgh Penguins

"Pittsburgh" did not start the new season in the best way. The team met "Philadelphia" at away match, losing twice to its opponent (6:3 and 5:2). The performance in defense badly let down, the defenders allowed almost everything to their opponent, as a result of which they missed 11 goals in two matches.

The "Penguins" were able to rehabilitate quite quickly, beating "Washington" on their own ice (4:3). The "Penguins" added well to the speed in the second half, which allowed them to win back. Although the game only came to life when the first or second line was on the ice, the rest of the time they were clearly inferior in speed.

Washington Capitals

The first match of "Washington" this year was quite productive. The team was able to defeat "Buffalo" with a score (4:6). Though in the return match, the opponent was still able to resist "Capitals", it could not escape the defeat; as a result, the second win for the "Capitals" (1:2).

The third match for the Washingtonians was already away, where they had to meet "Pittsburgh". Despite the defeat in the shootouts, "Washington" seemed stronger than the opponent throughout the match, but lacked a bit of luck in realizing the chances. One shot by "Ovechkin" could correct the situation at the end of the match, but the puck hit the post twice, never ending up in a goal.
