This afternoon’s game is a battle for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals and Hurricanes have been trading the number one and two spots for quite some time; currently they’re tied with 31 points each, with the Hurricanes having the edge because of having fewer games played.

The Capitals come into town after a tough watch in Florida, which saw the Capitals score three goals in the first four minutes of the second period. Alex Ovechkin recorded his 28th career hat trick to help the Capitals to a 4-3 victory.
