The key players of the Pens/Caps rivalry have been the same for years. Some faces are gone (Staal, Semin) and some are new, but the intensity and emotion will definitely be the same as long as the captains are Crosby and Ovechkin.
For Washington, Braden Holtby, who got his first win of the year versus Philly on Friday night, will be in the net. This will be his first look at the Penguins and there's of him. On the other side, there will be no lack of familiarity, Tomas Vokoun gets the nod for the black and gold against the team he played for last season.It's the Pens and Caps on NBC on Super Bowl Sunday for the third year in a row. Should be a great warm up for the big game later in the day, if that has anything for you.
