Penguins, 'Canes clawing to stay in contention

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes might well have their claws out when they meet Tuesday night at PPG Paints Arena -- not so much with the intention of playing a nasty game but rather to try to climb over the other's back in the tight Metropolitan Division.

Pittsburgh (25-21-3) and Carolina (21-18-8) sit just below the wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference. With a win, the Hurricanes would pull within a point of the Penguins, with two games in hand.

Carolina has won both previous meetings this season.
