Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Two winning streaks enter, one winning streak leaves as the Penguins and Devils battle for first place in the Atlantic Thunderdome. Er, division.

Loading Scores

Pittsburgh (8-3-0, 16 points) has won five straight games, shaking off the rust of a three-losses-in-four-games stretch to take hold of first place in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. Sidney Crosby is riding a six-game points streak and Marc-Andre Fleury has won three straight starts.

The Devils, meanwhile, have won three in a row after dropping a 5-1 decision to the Penguins last Saturday. The Devils trail the Pens by just one point in the Atlantic (6-1-3, 15 points) and can move into first place with a clean win Saturday.

Marc-Andre Fleury will get his third straight start opposite Martin Brodeur, who will appear in his 1,200th NHL game.

It's the first of a weekend home-and-home between the clubs that will have big implications for the division. Pittsburgh is 5-1-0 in Atlantic games, while the Devils are right behind them at 4-1-1.

Pittsburgh has taken the last three meetings between the clubs dating back to last season by a combined 15-5 score. They'll look to make it four straight over the Devils and six straight overall Saturday at Prudential Center.
