WATCH LIVE: Penguins at Capitals - Wednesday Night Rivalry

Barry Trotz and Alex Ovechkin are in their third year together in Washington, and the coach knows that his success behind the bench is intertwined with Ovi's success on the ice.

How’s this for a fitting opportunity: Alex Ovechkin could very well score his 1,000th regular season point in a game between the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins tonight.

Some might not appreciate the link between the two generational stars, but they truly fit the bill for “Wednesday Night Rivalry.” It doesn’t hurt that both teams are contenders in the East and on hot streaks heading into this game, either.

(In case you’re wondering, Crosby isn’t far behind Ovechkin with 982 points in his somewhat injury-stunted career.)

You can watch the action on NBCSN, online and via the NBC Sports App.
