The Noon Number: Metro Magic

A look at Washington's record within the Division and the road ahead

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

.778 - The Capitals' points percentage against Metro Division opponents so far this season, via a 6-1-2 record. Washington is one of five teams with just one intra-divisional regulation loss on the season (Tampa Bay, Florida, Minnesota and Los Angeles are the others), and have outscored their division rivals 29-18 in those nine games.

These numbers may bode well, with five of the team's next six games coming within the Division... but here it is mid-December and the Caps have yet to face any of their biggest Metro rivals, Pittsburgh, Philly or the Rangers.
