Penguins vs Rangers: NHL Metropolitan Leaders Meet in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Penguins: Top Eastern Conference club

Being as Pittsburgh owns a 17 point lead over New York, using the term “top two teams in the Metropolitan Division” is a bit of a stretch – but it’s true none the less. Boasting three of the top 14 NHL point producers (Crosby 77, Malkin 57, and Kunitz 55) the Penguins are the class of the Eastern Conference as they hold a six point lead over the Boston Bruins for home ice advantage in the playoffs. Since the calendar flipped over to December, Sid the Kid & Co. have posted a 22-6-1 record and they have won 12 of their last 15 contests.

New York Rangers: Playoff spot is not a lock for Big Apple Blueshirts

Although they currently hold one of the eight playoff positions in the East, the Rangers are going to be in a heated battle down the stretch as Philadelphia, Columbus and Washington are all four points or less behind them in the not so marvelous Metro Division. New York is playing on back-to-back nights (with travel) as they dropped a 2-1 home ice decision to the NHL Western Conference cellar dwelling Edmonton Oilers last night. Despite that stumble, the Blueshirts have won ten of their last 14 games to earn their second place ranking.
