The Carolina Hurricanes, (23-18-6) are visiting the new rink of the Pittsburgh Penguins, (29-15-4) again tonight and will try to extend their one game winning streak.  The Penguins are without the services of superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but Jordan Staal has returned to action and of course goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is always capable of stealing a game.  

Cam Ward will be in goal for the Canes.
