A look at a couple of strong home teams

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Pittsburgh Penguins at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

262 - Number of regular-season home wins for both the Capitals and Penguins since the start of the 2008-09 season, tied for most in the League over that span. Of those 262 wins, each team has picked up 10 against the other - the Penguins are 10-10-1 against the Caps in Pittsburgh over the last 10+ seasons, while the Caps have a 10-7-3 record when hosting the Penguins.

They’ll have a chance to improve on that record, tie up the season series, and break the tie for home wins tonight when they host their Pennsylvania brethren tonight.
