Sputtering Capitals, Penguins battle for Metro supremacy

The anticipation of a showdown between the Metropolitan Division co-leading Pittsburgh Penguins and host Washington Capitals on Sunday afternoon is tempered some by the recent play from both teams.

Washington has lost four straight (0-3-1) and Pittsburgh has dropped back-to-back games for the first time since Nov. 29-30.

To boot, the Capitals and Penguins lost to teams far below them in the standings on Saturday afternoon.
