No, I'm not talking about the one that is currently being played in Miami.(Go Saints..btw). I'm talking about the one that was played in Chinatown this afternoon. The Caps are proving over and over again that they are going to be tough to beat this season. The Caps stretched their winning streak to fourteen today, in comeback fashion against last year's Stanley Cup Champions. Pittsburgh came out strong, looking to avenge the loss they took at home to the Caps a few weeks ago. Washington showed that "extra gear" that they shift into when things get tough. The comeback was completed by a Mike Knuble rebound goal in overtime. 5-4 was the final. This team is by far the most exciting hockey team I have ever watched, I just hope they aren't peaking too soon. There's room on the bandwagon for you. You just can't have my seat. LETS GOOOOO CAPS!
I looked at January weather statistics for Pittsburgh in recent years, as well as the climate forecasts for this year and came up with what I think will be a good forecast for January 1st. This year is the beginning of a La Nina climate cycle, which means average temperatures and slightly above average precipitation for the Pittsburgh area. I'm also taking into account the recent storm activity and the lake effect snows which have been really cranking over the last few weeks.
I'm going to call for high temperatures slightly below freezing, with a stiff wind from the NW (10-12mph). For the game, more clouds than sun, chance of some sort of frozen precipitation, 60%.
