Fehr scores twice as Caps beat Pens for first time in nearly three years

Sunday December 28th, 2014
In 2011, Washington Capitals forward Eric Fehr scored two goals to propel his team to a 3-1 over the host team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, in that year’s Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, the league’s premier outdoor hockey game.

Almost four years later, and a smidge under five days before the Capitals will play host to the Chicago Blackhawks at the 2015 Winter Classic, Fehr had another two-goal game against Pittsburgh, a game the Capitals won 3-0.

It was also the first time Holtby backstopped a win over the Penguins. 

In his last 10-game stretch, the 25-year old goaltender has a 7-1-2 record and a .917 save percentage on the season.  

Pittsburgh, plagued by injuries, and illnesses like mumps, is 5-2-3 in its last 10 games. The Capitals have rolled through the month of December with only one loss in regulation and a 8-1-2 record.
