Kind of strange for it to happen so early in the year, but the Pens and Caps met for the 4th and final time this season. The Pens came in hoping to even up the season series and were also looking for their first regular season win in Pittsburgh since Caps coach Dale Hunter actually played in the NHL (well, not quite, but almost). The fans were treated to a pretty entertaining game that featured big performances from the star players. Check out our photos and video after the jump.

The Penguins looked to extend their winning streak to five games Friday night against an old nemesis. It didn't matter that they had already beaten the Canadiens twice this season, Montreal always seems to give Pittsburgh trouble. Check out our photos and video after the jump.

The Pens visited Verizon Center for the second and final time this regular season Wednesday night looking to snap a 5-game losing streak. The Caps were hoping to get things back on track after dropping a couple of games out west. The Pens gave an effort they can probably be happy with but once again it was not enough as Washington capitalized on a late first period defensive gaffe that allowed Jason Chimera to score the lone goal of the game. Tomas Vokoun's 30 saves would secure the win.

Friday's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers met with such critical acclaim that the Pens put on an encore performance Saturday night vs the Devils. Martin Brodeur's 41-save performance capped off a back-to-back offensive nightmare that saw the Pens throw 80 shots on net and score only twice. The weekend's action left Brooks Orpik with plenty to say.
