There's a recap of last night's game against Washington, there is an interesting story about a speechwriter and his connection to the Pens, and Marc-Andre Fleury is still doing Marc-Andre Fleury things. More on these topics, plus more stories in today's Pens Points!

Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...

The Pens and Caps finally played last night and it had a little bit of everything. Sidney CrosbyAlex Ovechkin. A crazy play in the Penguins' crease. And perhaps most importantly, the Pens walked away last night leading the series 1-0 with a 3-2 win! [Recap]

Marc-Andre Fleury has been stupendous this postseason. Last night was no different. [Post-Gazette]

Here is an interesting story about a Washington Post writer, a die-hard Capitals fan who wrote speeches for President Obama. Oh, and it just so happened that he wrote Obama's speech for the Penguins' White House visit last year. [Washington Post]
