Penguins out for better showing against Capitals

The star power associated with the Washington Capitals-Pittsburgh Penguins rivalry will be on display, but a few elements will be missing when the teams meet in the Steel City on Friday. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who has 13 points in 13 games after a start slowed by offseason wrist surgeryand a bout with COVID-19, is expected to be on the ice. Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, who ranks among the NHL leaders with 20 goals and 41 points, also is expected to play.
