The Caps completed a 4 game season sweep with a 6-3 win in Pittsburgh last night. The exclamation point was Alex Ovechkin's empty net goal with .2 second left. I saw that as a very definitive messages to the Pens. This was the first year in the history of the Capitals francise that they swept all the regular season games from the Pens. I agree with my buddy Kevin though, we'd rather have 4 more wins against the Pens in April. The playoffs start next week! I cant wait!
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%.
