Penguins determined to maintain dominance vs. Capitals

The Pittsburgh Penguins have found success against the Washington Capitals early this season, winning four of the first five meetings. Pittsburgh will try to add to that when it comes to Washington on Thursday night for another matchup.

The last victory came on Tuesday came when the Penguins used a Kasperi Kapanen goal just 1:43 into overtime for a 3-2 victory over Washington. The speed that Pittsburgh employs on a regular basis bothered the Capitals on many occasions, a big reason the Penguins out-shot them 37-22.

"I thought we were playing the game hard," Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. "We were trying to play the right way. It wasn't perfect by any stretch, but there aren't too many games that are. But I thought from top to bottom we were playing hard."
