A look at the fight for first in the weakest division in hockey

USA TODAY Sports

2 - Number of Metropolitan Division teams with more wins than losses so far this season as the Pittsburgh Penguins (13-8-0) travel to Washington to face the Capitals (12-8-1) in a battle for first place tonight.

The two teams are also the only Metro clubs with positive goal differentials (+11 and +10, respectively), and the only ones that have scored as many goals as they've allowed at five-on-five.
