Rocky Bleier Steelers Jersey .com) - The top two teams in the Metropolitan Division will clash Wednesday evening in D.C. as the Washington Capitals welcome the Pittsburgh Penguins for a battle at the Verizon Center. You can watch the game on TSN2 at 8pm et/5pm pt. With 26 points on a 13-8-0 record, Pittsburgh is just one point ahead of the streaking Capitals for first place in the Metro, the newly-named division that makes up half of the realigned Eastern Conference. This is the first of four scheduled meetings between the Pens and Caps during the 2013-14 regular season. Pittsburgh enters Wednesday on a four-game winning streak in this series and also has taken three of the past five meetings in the nations capital. Washington, however, is coming off its third straight victory and can match a season-best winning streak with another triumph in tonights divisional matchup. The Capitals opened November with four consecutive wins, but then dropped two in a row before getting back on track with their current hot streak. Washington has scored four goals in each of its wins during the three-game stretch and the club last played on Sunday when it downed the visiting St. Louis Blues by a 4-1 count. Alex Ovechkin continued his terrific start to the season with a two-goal performance against the Blues. The Russian superstar has 17 goals on the season, tying him with Alexander Steen of St. Louis for the NHL lead. Ovechkin, of course, led the league with 32 goals in 48 games last season and won his third Hart Trophy at the end of the lockout-shortened campaign. Ovechkin enters Wednesday on a three-game goal-scoring streak and has four markers during that stretch. The 28-year-old winger has registered 22 goals and 40 points in 31 career games against the Penguins. John Carlson and Mikhail Grabovski each scored a goal while Nicklas Backstrom posted three assists for the Capitals on Sunday. Braden Holtby made 46 stops to earn the win. "I think weve been playing decent hockey and hopefully well continue to grow," said Washington head coach Adam Oates. The Capitals have won six straight home games and havent been defeated in D.C. since dropping a 2-0 decision against the New York Rangers on Oct. 16. Pittsburgh enters Wednesdays showdown having won two of its past three games, but the club is just 2-4-0 since winning four in a row from Oct. 28-Nov. 2. The Pens last played on Monday when they recorded a 3-1 home victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Brian Gibbons, Brandon Sutter and Sidney Crosby each scored third-period goals to back 27 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury in the triumph at CONSOL Energy Center. Gibbons, making his NHL debut after being recalled from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Monday, added an assist on Sutters marker that came just 62 seconds after the rookie snapped a scoreless tie. Evgeni Malkin delivered a pair of helpers for the Penguins, who had registered only eight goals in dropping four of their previous five coming into Mondays tilt. "I think I am just taking it all in right now," Gibbons said. "I dont usually show a lot of emotion, but on the inside I am really happy." Crosby is tied with Steen for the NHL lead in points with 26. Like Ovechkin, Crosby has fared well in tonights matchup during his career, posting 14 goals and 43 points in 25 career games against the Capitals. Fleury is 13-7-2 with a 2.60 goals against average in 23 career games against Washington. Holtby is 0-3-0 with a 4.53 GAA in three outings versus the Pens. Capitals defenseman Mike Green has missed the past two games with a lower-body issue, but was able to practice on Tuesday. However, he may need a little more time to get into game shape before returning. Heath Miller Steelers Jersey .J. - Percy Harvin is ready to go, and theres no question in his mind hell be playing Sunday. Terry Bradshaw Steelers Jersey .com) - Jenny Boucek is the new head coach of the Seattle Storm. . The Tiger-Cats announced on Friday the linebacker has signed a new contract with the team through the 2016 season.Jordan Spieth admitted that his second round score was a couple of strokes higher than he was aiming for at Augusta. The defending champion held a two-stroke lead after the first round but has seen his advantage cut to a single shot following a round of 74, leaving him four under for the tournament.After two birdies in his first three holes, Spieth double bogeyed the fifth and despite further gains at eight and 15, he twice carded back-to-back bogeys - at nine and 10 and 16 and 17 - and now has Rory McIlroy (-3) breathing down his neck. Spieth holds a one-shot lead after the second round at Augusta I thought it was it was couple of strokes higher than what I was looking for, I thought even par was a good score today, Spieth told Sky Sports.Especially playing 11 and 12, getting two pars there on two of the harder holes on the golf course and being a couple under early, I thought it was a couple higher than the goal.Its a bit disappointing in that sense running off but its pretty much a brand new tournament coming our way the last two rounds.The 22-year-old American felt that conditions got significantly more difficult as his round progressed and said that he found it difficult to keep a cool head on the back nine. Spieth carded 74 in his second round Today was my learning experience for the week, said Spieth. It was really, really tough to hold it together on that back nine.Even when I was trying to lag putts, I still had three or four feet, and when the greens are crusty and one hundred people have walked on them that day and theyre that fast, its so difficult even to make those two or three footers.It was just a grind on each hole and emotionally that just gets you going a little and its very difficult to just keeping thinking that its okay with a smile on your face.I think the person who walks the tallest is going to end up winning these next couple of days, Ive obviously got Rory, who has proven himself in major championships, right on my heels and a bunch of other major contenders at Augusta. Antonio Brown Jersey. Amateur Bryson DeChambeau said he has no doubt in his mind that he can win the Masters, after outplaying partner Jordan Spieth during their second round Amateur Bryson DeChambeau played alongside Spieth and despite a triple bogey seven on the last, finds himself just four shots off the lead, saying he had no doubt that he could win the Green Jacket.Its not a score you want on the last hole but I just hit a couple of bad drives and thats what led up to it, he said.Ive been driving the ball good all day, pretty much, and unfortunately I messed up at the last but thats golf. Im not worried about it, Im looking forward to the weekend too.Ive always enjoyed Jordans company out there and, again, he was a gentleman and I enjoyed it thoroughly out there with him.I learnt a lot from him out there I think, patience, being comfortable out there and just going and executing a golf shot - it was quite fun out there.Its impossible to know just how much this experience is going to help and I think going forward itll definitely help, I just dont know how much.
