This is the second of four games between the Pennsylvania rivals. On Jan. 19, in the season opener for both teams, Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 of 27 shots in a 3-1 Pittsburgh win in Philadelphia.

Penguins: With three straight wins, the Penguins took over the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings at the start of the week.

While most attention is focused on the offensive exploits of Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Evgeni Malkin, one of the biggest reasons for the Penguins' run up the standings is their play defensively.

The team has improved its goals-against average from 2.66 in 2011-12 to 2.38 this season, while still allowing just 27.4 shots per game. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury also has been better, with a 2.34 GAA and .914 save percentage, and he's allowed two or fewer goals in seven of his 11 starts this season.

Flyers: Claude Giroux showed he is a leader in both word and deed Monday against the New York Islanders.

Two days after ripping his team for its listless effort in a 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, Giroux scored a pair of goals, including one 26 seconds into the game, leading a 7-0 rout of the New York Islanders.

"As a team, we weren't satisfied how we showed up every game and how we played," Giroux said in the Philadelphia Daily News. "It was unacceptable -- no intensity, no will to pay the price to win the game. Everyone today was paying the price to win. It's a lot more fun to play that way."

Pens may lease the Consol Energy Center but the Flyers own it. ;)
