Pens almost give up a shorthanded goal but pens are able to come back and Guentzel scores off a nice pass from Crosby. Penguins only have 5 shots this period but are able to go up 3-1

Cullen and Crosby were not able to score in the empty net but the Bruins are able to score and get closer at 3-2 with 1:01 left

That should be game! McCann get his second into the empty net and yup, the Penguins win 4-2! Great win for the Penguins. Loved the play in the first and third periods but the second period was very sloppy for the Pens. Murray played in his eighth straight game and was really good

I still like McCann a lot more on that top line versus Simon but we will see what Sullivan does on Tuesday when the Pens take on the Capitals

Jared McCann is a really nice, young player. I like him better at center, but he's fit in very well with Crosby. The only nitpick is that he and Guentzel are both LWs, but Guentzel doesn't seem all that bothered by having to play RW.

I also find it funny how Sullivan keeps messing with that top line. it seems like you have one bad shift and you are off that line but Malkin and Kessel have been bad for weeks but that second line continues to stay together. I thought he found a good fit when he put McCann with Crosby a week or so ago but all of a sudden, there's Simon again! Crosby was on a hot streak for quite a few games then when Simon goes back to the top line he goes cold again.

Only 13 games left. Let's see if he can stick with some lines for a few of them

I don't mind Simon, but I think he's miscast as a top 6 forward. I think his best position is probably 3rd or 4th line center, but Pens are loaded with natural centers at the moment. I only wish Sprong had gotten the same leeway and patience from Sullivan.

If I were setting lines right now, I'd have Crosby, Malkin, McCann and Cullen at center. Then Crosby/Guentzel/Bugjustad, Malkin/Hornqvist/Blueger, McCann/Kessel/Simon, Cullen/Wilson/ZAR.

Carolina beats Colorado tonight 3-0 and now has 83 points tied with Pittsburgh and drops the Penguins to the 1st Wild card spot

Blue Jackets lose to the Islanders 2-0 and stay at 79 points and are in the 2nd wild card spot

Flyers win over Ottawa 3-2 and are only 3 points out of a playoff spot with 76 points

Capitals and Penguins will meet in an hour for the last time this season and an interesting fact that I heard on Mark Madden's show is that the winner of the last meeting of the year has gone on to win the Stanley Cup.

Washington on a 7 game winning streak and the Penguins have gotten points in 7 of their last 8 games. A lot of the media is focusing on what the Penguins might do to Tom Wilson as this is his first game back in PGH since he broke ZAR's jaw. IMO, just win the game in regulation and get the two points. That's the only revenge the Pens need to dish out

Some other big games tonight are the Blue Jackets taking on the Bruins and Montreal versus Detroit.

Murray in net, McCann back on the top line with Crosby and Guentzel and Blueger moved up to the second line with Malkin and Kessel

Nice little tribute video shown for Carl Hagelin

Bad goal given up by Murray as it goes right over his glove, no body in front of him screening the goalie with 30 seconds left in the period to give the Capitals a 1-0 lead

Hopefully history repeats itself as the first team to score in these games have lost all of them

Crosby with a terrible turnover at the blue line before the goal. Instead of making the smart shoot in, he tried to make a play while surrounded by 3 Caps. A shoot in probably leaves no time for Wash to skate up ice.

Pens all of a sudden flip a switch and wake up. First the Caps score a fluky goal to make it 2-0 but the Pens come back and score 2 goals in 47 seconds. Crosby and Guentzel score to tie this game up 2-2

Nice! Crosby with a power play goal to give the pens the lead 3-2. Nice goal from Crosby off a nice feed from Kessel. I'm not sure but Crosby might've gotten an assist on that first goal also

Penguins up 3-2 after two periods. Pens turned it on late and finally started getting some shots on net and some traffic in front of Holtby.

Perfect place at the perfect time as the rebound goes right to Kessel and he puts it in for the power play goal. Pens take the lead 4-2 and Malkin with 2 assists gets his 1,000th point of his career. Congrats Geno!

Now let's lock this down and win this game! Would be nice though to see Crosby get a hat trick

Huge goal for the Capitals as the Pens take a too many on the ice penalty. Caps pull within one goal. 4-3 Penguins
