3/21/2019TAMPA BAY 
3/26/2019at WASHINGTON 
PITTSBURGH: LAST SEASON: 47-29-6, 100 points. Finished second in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Washington Capitals in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Mike Sullivan (fourth season, sixth NHL season).
ADDED: D Jack Johnson, C Matt Cullen.
LOST: F Conor Sheary, F Tom Kuhnhackl, D Matt Hunwick, F Carter Rowney.
PLAYER TO WATCH: G Matt Murray. The 24-year-old endured an up and down first season as the franchise's full-time starter. His goals against average (2.92) and save percentage (.907) all took significant dips off his previous two seasons. Having spotty play in front of him didn't help. If Murray can return to the steady form that helped the Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017, Pittsburgh will be a tough out in the postseason.
OUTLOOK: Pittsburgh's bid to become the first team in more than 30 years to "threepeat" ended with a loss to Washington. They opted to tinker than totally retool in the offseason, splurging on Johnson and bringing back the 42-year-old Cullen to provide depth down the middle. With Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin around, the Penguins will always be in the mix. But with the core of Crosby, Malkin, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang all in their early 30s, staying fresh for eight months will be a challenge.
CAROLINA: LAST SEASON: 36-35-11, 83 points. Sixth in Metropolitan Division.
COACH: Rod Brind'Amour (first season, first NHL season).
ADDED: F Andrei Svechnikov, D Dougie Hamilton, D Calvin de Haan, G Petr Mrazek.
LOST: G Cam Ward, F Jeff Skinner, F Elias Lindholm, D Noah Hanifin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Sebastian Aho. The 21-year-old led the team last season with 29 goals and 65 points. He's entering his third season, and figures to be the team's top offensive threat ' especially now that Jeff Skinner has been traded to Buffalo ' though it will be worth watching to see how he adjusts to playing center instead of the wing.
OUTLOOK: With each passing year, the Hurricanes grow more tired of talking about their lengthy run of playoff absences. Either way, they'll make history this season ' either by finally ending the drought, or by missing out yet again and matching the longest dry spell in NHL history. They have the defensive corps of a playoff team, but will need improvement from G Scott Darling and their young scorers to generate offense to finally make the postseason.
Penguins, Hurricanes clash in key divisional game

The Carolina Hurricanes wanted to be in important games late in the season and they'll be in that situation Tuesday night at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C.

The Pittsburgh Penguins arrive for a matchup key to the standings within the Eastern Conference.

"You just can't afford any losses," Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "The race is so tight. No one is losing around us."

These teams are back-to-back in the Metropolitan Division, with the Penguins in third place with 88 points and the Hurricanes, who have two games in hand, fourth with 85.

Carolina and Pittsburgh have split two meetings this season, each winning with shutouts on the road. The teams meet again March 31 at Pittsburgh.

This marks the second contest of a five-game homestand for the Hurricanes, who began the stretch with Saturday night's 4-2 victory against the Buffalo Sabres.

Carolina center Jordan Staal collected his 500th career point in that game. He said the magnitude of games is clear for the Hurricanes.

"Whether it's your best game or not, all that really matters is if you get the two points," Staal said. "We want to build on that again. We've continued to do that. You can tell the leadership and character in the room and everyone believing in themselves."

This is the start of a four-game road trip for the Penguins.

Pittsburgh is 6-2-1 across its previous nine games, losing 2-1 in overtime Sunday night to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Despite picking up a team point, it was a disturbing result for the Penguins, who gave up the tying goal with 18.8 seconds left in regulation.

"We're disappointed we didn't close it out," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said.

Other developments are bound to impact Pittsburgh in the coming days.

Sullivan said Penguins center Evgeni Malkin, who notched his 1,000 career point last week, missed the Philadelphia game with what was been described as a week-to-week upper-body injury. His injury status wasn't revealed until prior to Sunday's game.

Pittsburgh plugged in Teddy Blueger on the second line with Malkin's absence. It's too soon to see if that's a consistent combination, though Blueger responded with a goal.

"As far as moving forward, we'll probably take it game to game and see how it goes," Sullivan said.

It has been a roster shuffle for the Penguins, who got back right winger Bryan Rust from a nine-game absence from a lower-body injury.

One staple in the Pittsburgh lineup has been right winger Phil Kessel, who has played in 319 consecutive games. On Tuesday night at Carolina, he should set the franchise record for consecutive games.

Kessel, 31, shares that mark with former forward Craig Adams, who began his career with the Hurricanes before joining the Penguins.

Hurricanes goalie Curtis McElhinney notched the shutout of the Penguins last month. He was in his first game Saturday after serving as the backup for three straight games. He has made 28 starts this season, matching his career high set four years ago with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Hurricanes right winger Nino Niederreiter has 22 points in 25 games since joining the Hurricanes in a trade with the Minnesota Wild. He posted 23 points in 46 games with the Wild this season.
