Pittsburgh completed a home and home sweep with Washington with a 2-0 decion over the visitors on Tuesday. Sydney Crosby and Jussi Jokinen did the honors for the Penguins who have dominated the Capitals to the tune of eight consecutive victories. In the process Crosby posted his NHL leading 88th point in support of Marc-Andre Fleury's 32 stop performances and his fifth shutout of the season. Washington didn't help out netminder Jaroslav Halak who faced 34 shots in absorbing the loss.

Philadelphia missed out on picking up a crucial two points in the standings following a 2-1 loss to visiting New Jersey on Tuesday night. Travis Zajacgave the penguins a 1-0 lead in the opening frame before Nicklas Grossmann evened the score with a second period tally which set the stage for Jaromir Jagr's goal early in the third with the respective defenses taking over from there. Martin Brodeur picked up an amazing 50th win against the Flyers with 30 stops while the loss went to Steve Mason who recorded 24 saves as Philadelphia fell for the second straight time.
The road team is 5-1 in the past six match ups while Pittsburgh is 4-1 in the last five trips to Philadelphia while the under is 6-2 in the last eight. Right off the bat I would lean Penguins and hope I'm wrong as a Flyers fan but I need to see goalies first...
