Former general manager of KHL clubs Leonid Vaysfeld shared his expectations from the NHL regular season match Pittsburgh Penguins – Washington Capitals.
“It’s great that Match TV is now showing the NHL. This is very interesting for the fans. The confrontation Malkin – Ovechkin, in whatever form they are, always causes a stir. These are two of the most titled Russian acting players in the NHL. It is very interesting what they will show in battle with each other.
Yes, Pittsburgh lost two matches at the start, but Washington won twice. But it is too early to draw conclusions. And this is such a season when it is difficult to be always in perfect shape because of the covid situation. And too few matches have passed.
Is there a premonition that Alexander Ovechkin will score today? I will reveal a military secret: I have such a premonition in every match. If he scores against Pittsburgh today, few will be surprised, « – quotes the words of Weisfeld » Match TV « .
