The Penguins game scheduled for Sunday against the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center is currently still on, despite the massive storm expected to hit the East coast and potentially cripple the Washington D.C. area this weekend.
The Capitals put out a statement this morning that said their games go on as scheduled, including Sunday’s 12:30 p.m. matinee against the Penguins.
Owner Ted Leonsis said via Twitter: “We will monitor the forecast and consult with the NHL/NBA regarding games this weekend. We will communicate any changes via our platforms.”
The Penguins, who host Vancouver at home on Saturday at 12:30, said they too will be keeping an eye on the situation.
“We are monitoring the situation with the Caps and NHL,” said director of communications Jen Bullano Ridgeley in an email. “We don’t have any further information at this time.”
