Keeping up with the Metropolitans 11/13/16-11/19/16

Your weekly dose of Metropolitan action!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Believe it or not, it's Thanksgiving this week! Roughly a quarter of the regular season has been played, and now is where the strong teams start to pull away from the rest of the crowd. Last year, Washington stormed out of the gate and held strong all the way during their record setting regular season. Will we have another front runner the whole way, or is it gonna be a competition week to week?

The Rangers remained atop of Mount Metro for the last two weeks, see if any of the other Metro teams can jump ahead in the race to the top!

***Game of the week! The Penguins and Rangers will be squaring off in a home and home to start off everyone's Thanksgiving. If either team pulls off a clean sweep, that could potentially be the decider for the Metro this year. Go Pens!!!
