The National Hockey League's Metropolitan Division was formed in 2013 as part of the Eastern Conference in a league realignment. It is also a successor of the original Atlantic Division and one of the two successors to the Southeast Division. Six of its teams were previously together in the Patrick Division from 1981-93 (one joined in 1982). It is the only NHL division without a Canadian team, with five of the division's clubs located in either the New York City area or in Pennsylvania.
The Metropolitan Division contains some of the most historic and intense rivalries in the NHL, including Flyers-Rangers, Devils-Rangers, Flyers-Penguins, Islanders-Rangers, Capitals-Flyers, and Devils-Flyers. Three of its teams (Rangers, Islanders, Devils) are within the league's largest market (New York), the Flyers are in the fourth largest market (Philadelphia), and the Capitals in the seventh largest (Washington, D.C.). Games between Metropolitan Division teams are frequently shown on national television.
