Brutal burn from the Penguins to the Capitals.

The rivalry between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals has been a natural one from the moment both Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin were drafted and it has flourished ever since.

On Wednesday ahead of a rivalry night game between the two clubs, members or the Pittsburgh Penguins' social media staff decided to take some shots at their long-time rival, and I must  say it was brilliantly executed.

The Penguins sent out a tweet showing both the banner raised to the rafters in Pittsburgh as well as the one raised to the rafters in Washington from the Capitals, and we all know how last season turned out.

The Capitals not to be pushed around issued a response of their own.
