Tonight’s energy is all about amplifying the natural talent these professional athletes. Finally…this is what playoff hockey should look like.
Capitals vs. Penguins
Tonight the astrological boost is benefiting both teams giving the Caps a very slight .08 edge over the Pens.
Astrologically speaking, this energy shift is long overdue for the Capitals. Why? Because the Capital’s notoriously struggle during Mercury Retrograde. Their first round showing was proof of their lack of command under this chaotic energy. That said, the change in energy tonight is refueling them with incredible focus, accuracy and timing. Performances will likely be more consistent with what fans have seen during the regular season and what you’d expect from a roster of this caliber.
Ovechkin, Johansson, Williams, Kunzetsov, Burakovsky, Eller, Winnik, Beagle, Orlov, and Holtby will be making a statement. Along with several other Caps (See below).
The Penguins come in to this game minus Captain Sidney Crosby and his trusted side kick Connor Sheary. This is a tough blow for the Pens but luckily, the positive game day energy is fueling their fire as much as their opponent. The Penguins and Capitals have VERY similar roster compositions and the key tonight will be the talent match-up of those players who are benefiting most.
At the time of this writing, it’s unclear who will be in for Crosby and Sheary so our best guesses are below. That said these players will be key to the Penguins holding on to a win tonight: Kessel, Bonino, Hagelin, Malkin, Kuhnhackl, Cole, Schultz, Dumolin, and Fleury could make tonight’s match up a powerful showing. But it will likely take every on the Pens roster to own their favored energy.
