Penguins Keep Capitals in Check This Time

The Washington Capitals played hard against the Pittsburgh Penguins last night, but couldn’t quite close.  The first lead they had was after the first shooter in the shootout, but promptly lost that lead when the Penguins first shooter, defenseman Kris Letang, got one past Michal Neuvirth. Six rounds later, it was over with the Penguins heading home as winner in the Winter Classic preview.

There is nothing useful I can say about this game, which is fine, because Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine Never Breaks and others have and will say plenty better than I could anyway.  I took some photos and you can see them below or on flickr.
