The NHL action on the ice will feature the Pittsburgh Penguins (24-15-8) and the Washington Capitals (25-19-6) at Capital One Arena in Washington on Thursday, January 26.


The Sidney Crosby-led Penguins will hit the road against the Capitals with a 10-10-4 record away from home and looking for their second straight win following a 7-6 home win in overtime versus the Florida Panthers last time out.


That was a hard-earned victory as the game went with an alternate lead and deadlocks on the way to the final deadlock at 6-6 forcing the match to go into overtime.


Defenseman Kris Letang led his team with two goals and two assists including the winning goal from a power-play shot in the extended period.     


Pittsburgh’s Center Sidney Crosby managed to add another three points to his scorebook after punching in a goal and dishing out two assists in the victory.


Crosby is on his way to scoring 100 points in the year in which he currently compiled a total of 57 points by totaling 23 goals and 34 assists over the course of the season.


Crosby led the way for the Penguins to earn a wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference.   


The Pittsburgh Penguins are 5-10 straight up in their last 15 contests and 1-7 SU in their last 8 road outings played.


The Penguins are 4-1 straight up in their last 5 games when playing on the road versus Washington while the totals went UNDER in 5 of Pittsburgh’s last 7 matches played against a rival from the Eastern Conference.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Washington Capitals Predictions 1/26/2023


The Washington Capitals are returning home after a disappointing road match leading to their one-point loss and will try to get back by beating the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday evening.


Washington dropped to 25-19-6 overall and 12-11-3 on the road record following a heartbreaking road loss at 2-3 versus the Colorado Avalanche on January 24.


The Capitals come into this match-up riding on a two-game losing streak after that loss. Left-wingmen Conor Sheary (12) and Alex Ovechkin (31) scored one goal each to give Washington a 2-3 score in the loss.    


The Capitals’ Left-wingman Alex Ovechkin at 37 is playing like a young stud after leading the way for Washington with 31 goals and 22 assists for 53 points after playing for 49 games on the year.


Ovechkin is on his way to scoring a total of 50 goals for the 10th time in his pro hockey career that would possibly shatter Wayne Gretzky’s goal record within the next few years of his NHL career.


Gretzky played 20 seasons for four teams (including the Oilers and the Kings) in the NHL with a total of 894 goals and 1,963 assists.    


The Washington Nationals are 2-5 straight up in their last 7 contests while the totals went OVER in 4 of Washington’s last 5 matches played versus Pittsburgh.


The Capitals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 home outings and 1-4 straight up in their last 5 games when playing at home against the Penguins.   


Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals. The NHL Pick for this contest is Pittsburgh -110. This will be a battle between two famous iconic superstars in NHL history.


Crosby-led Penguins will take on Ovechkin-led Capitals in their quest to make a better standing in the playoffs.


However, the clear winner in the leadership will be the one that won three Stanley Cups. The prediction: Pittsburgh Penguins will win 5-2.
