It doesn’t get much better than this.
Sure, it would be ideal if Sidney Crosby was healthy enough to play, but the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins are still loaded with eye-catching talent as they start their seasons.
The Capitals should be fired up to play the spoiler role as the Penguins raise their Stanley Cup banner.
Washington rolls out the likes of Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Nicklas Backstrom while Pittsburgh counters with talents such as Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Phil Kessel.
Yeah, this should be a lot of fun. Watch online or via the NBC Sports App.
