The Pittsburgh Penguins will hope to record their fifth win in their last six games when they face fierce rival, the Washington Capitals tonight.
The Penguins, lead by Team Canada's Sidney Crosby, are the runaway leaders in the eastern conference so far this year and have won 12 straight games at home.
The only player in the league with more goals than Crosby is Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin, who has found the net 33 times this season.
Ovechkin's work has catapulted the Capitals' to fifth in the conference and a chance to make the playoffs for the seventh straight year.
Washington may have revenge on their mind after being shut out by the Penguins in a 4-0 defeat in November.
This will also be the teams' second meeting as divisional rivals.
The Capitals will be playing their fifth game in a week whilst the Penguins last played four days ago.
Washington defenseman Jack Hillen will miss the game on injured reserve whilst Pittsburgh are without Joe Vitale, James Neal, Brian Gibbons and Beau Bennett.
