The Canes snapped a five game winless streak at home with a win over the tough Calgary Flames this weekend and now take aim at snapping another losing streak as they embark on a lengthy road trip. Carolina has lost three straight on the road, a streak they hope to snap with a win over their Metropolitan Division opponents on Tuesday night.
The power play finally coming alive was the key for the Hurricanes in their 3-2 win against the Flames as their 26th ranked PP unit scored two goals on the day to boost them to the win.
Carolina’s lengthy winless streak was concerning but wasn’t harmful overall to their place in the standings thanks to the loser point. The Canes lost four of their five games during their losing streak, picking up four points despite not winning a single game for over a week.
Ageless blueliner Brent Burns has been a beast for the Canes this season. Burns leads Carolina in shots on goal this season and ranks second on the team in assists with 11, impressive for a 37 year old.
Pittsburgh looks to get back to winning ways as they continue to try to climb the Metropolitan Division standings after a slow start to the season. A recent heater where the Pens have gone 5-1 in their last six games has the team back in the middle of the pack, with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin back to their Hall of Fame level.
Something that is working in the Pens favor is a clean bill of health for their roster. Somehow the team currently lacks a single player on the injury report. A lucky coincidence for the Pens as injuries typically have accumulated by late November during the grind of a long NHL season.
Pittsburgh has had six straight games without a player on the injury report, coincidentally the same time period where they have posted a 5-1 record. The last time the Pens had a stretch of this length with no players on the injury report was during the 2000-2001 playoffs, where the Pens somehow went six games across two playoff series without a player picking up a significant knock.
