INJURY TO WATCH
Washington right winger TJ Oshie (upper body) is questionable to play tonight. For the Penguins, center Derick Brassard (groin) and right winger Phil Kessel (undisclosed) are both questionable. Right winger Carter Rowney (upper body) is out indefinitely.
Pittsburgh has won two of the three meetings this season, including the lone matchup since the calendar turned with a 7-4 home victory on Feb. 2. The Capitals are coming in hot, however, with wins in eight of their last 10 games. Washington is coming off a 4-1 home loss to the Hurricanes, but should be up for this game. Pittsburgh has won two in a row after a 5-2 home win over the Canadiens yesterday. With more rest time, I’m going with the talented Capitals on the road tonight.
