Carolina Hurricanes vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview NHL 2018 Full HD
The Carolina Hurricanes, not exactly at the top of prognosticators’ lists as Stanley Cup contenders entering the season, are among the teams clawing to make headway in the Metropolitan Division and, by extension, the Eastern Conference.
But the Hurricanes (18-13-8) have accomplished more at this point than their opponent Thursday night at PPG Paints Arena, the two-time defending Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins (20-18-3).
Carolina is coming off a 5-4 overtime loss against Washington on Tuesday and is 7-2-1 in its past 10 games. That boosted the Hurricanes into the final wild-card spot in the East and has convinced them that they can continue to put together a nice run of games.
“Once you get in (a playoff spot), you need to keep climbing and keep getting points,” Hurricanes veteran winger Justin Williams said.
