It's always must-see TV when Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby go head-to-head. They'll meet again Wednesday night in front of a nationally televised audience.

Now division rivals, the Penguins enter this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game with a 16-point lead on Washington (22-16-8) in the Metropolitan Division.
Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer this season, has 15 goals and 45 points in 26 career games against the Capitals. Ovechkin has 22 goals and 40 points in 32 games against the Penguins.
Pittsburgh (33-12-2) has won 12 in a row at home.
