The Capitals have enjoyed much success on Super Bowl Sunday- a 14-6-2 record, including a 14-5-1 mark at home- but few of the Caps' Super Sunday games are as memorable as their 2010 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
As the Caps and Pens prepare for their second Super Sunday match up in four years, much of the conversation at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex Saturday surrounded the Feb.7, 2010 meeting.
"It was one of those [games] you always remember," Jason Chimera recalled.
Chimera and the Capitals trailed Pittsburgh 4-1 late in the second period, before rallying for a 5-4 win in overtime. It just happened to be Washington's franchise-record 14th straight win.
"We definitely felt like we were unbeatable during that stretch," said Eric Fehr, whose goal at 17:12 of the second period cut Pittsburgh's lead to 4-2.
"We were scoring a lot of goals at the time and even when we were down, we felt confident enough that we could come back."
