Penguins host Hurricanes after reversal of fortunes

The Pittsburgh Penguins and visiting Carolina Hurricanes enter their game Tuesday having ended very different streaks in their previous outings.

Carolina arrested a five-game losing streak Saturday with a 3-2 home win over the Calgary Flames, while the Penguins' five-game winning streak ended with a 4-1 loss to the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Hurricanes went 0-1-4 during their skid, managing to pull out four points, so a regulation win provided some relief after they felt like they were playing well enough to win before the breakthrough.
