The division rival Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are set to renew hostilities on Wednesday when they meet at Verizon Center.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (1-1-1): After getting pierced for 11 goals in his first two appearances of the season, goaltender Matt Murray earned his first victory with a 26-save shutout of Nashville, although he praised his teammates. “We weren’t happy with either of the games prior to this,” Murray said. “This is our first really good team effort and I think every single guy in the room stepped up.” Defenseman Ian Cole lost some teeth after taking a slap shot to the mouth Saturday and will not be available, but forward Patric Hornqvist (hand) could make his season debut.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS (2-0-1): T.J. Oshie scored twice and set up another tally as Washington built a pair of two-goal leads at Tampa Bay, but he lamented the fact that the team took its foot off the pedal. “Early in the season here, that’s a learning moment for us,” said Oshie, who had 10 points in four regular-season games versus Washington last season. “I feel like every year you kind of get that same thing. Once you get a lead, you start sitting back. So we’ll get that out of our game.” Evgeny Kuznetsov has eight assists, including on each of Ovechkin’s goals.

Oddsmakers opened the Capitals as -128-moneyline favorites versus the Penguins, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

A powerful Russian leader surely was not mentioned on the first leg of the Pittsburgh Penguins‘ visit to the nation’s capital. Expect that to change as the Penguins prepare to face Alex Oveckin and the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night, a matchup coming 24 hours after the reigning Stanley Cup champs were feted at the White House.

Pittsburgh has dual concerns entering the latest chapter of the Sidney Crosby-Ovechkin rivaly — slowing down Washington’s offense and its Russian superstar captain. The Penguins finally have something to build on, blanking Nashville in a Stanley Cup Finals rematch after they were outscored 15-5 in their first two games. Conversely, the Capitals are coming off their first loss, blowing a two-goal lead in an overtime defeat at Tampa Bay. Ovechkin was kept off the scoresheet in the setback after a scorching start in which he pumped in seven goals in the team’s first two wins.

Washington lost its last outing, a 4-3 result against the Lightning on October 09. Bettors who backed the Lightning at -114 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Pittsburgh was a 4-0 winner at home against the Predators. Bettors on Pittsburgh at -150 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
