Here are your Pens Points for this Wednesday morning...
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes dueled last night in the comfortable confines of PPG Paints Arena. An opening salvo from Sidney Crosby gave the Penguins an early 1-0 lead. The Hurricanes, ever a potent threat, and looking to find their mojo again, got the better of the Penguins, scoring the next two goals before Jake Guentzel tied the game with less than a minute left in regulation. The Canes took the winning point in OT. [Recap]
