Latest from the Road
Our first trip to Pittsburgh since 2001 was one for the books! An early start made getting to the Steel Town easy as traffic was light and the travel was swift. Our Roadies were treated to some surprising hospitality as the PPG Paints Arena faithful were welcoming and friendly. The game was too, as the Caps took a 3-goal lead in the 1st period, and a 4th goal in the first minute of the 3rd on a beautiful short-handed play. The Pens staged a comeback scoring two in a row, but Holtby shut the door after that, allowing the Caps to finish off the home team with another goal later in the period. We left Pittsburgh victorious with a 5-2 final score.
