Penguins-Hurricanes Preview

(AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes took a small step toward ending their recent woes by beating one of the NHL's best teams.

The Hurricanes will try to sweep their back-to-back games against Pittsburgh on Saturday night and avoid a season-high third consecutive home loss as well as their fourth in as many visits from the Penguins.

Carolina (7-12-3) had dropped six of seven and three in a row before a visit to Pittsburgh on Friday night. That appeared it would be monumental challenge for the scuffling club with the Penguins (15-5-2) having gone 5-0-1 in their prior six home games.
