Hurricanes Vs. Penguins Score Update: James Neal And Pittsburgh Tie It 1-1 After Two Periods

After two periods at Consol Energy Center, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes are tied at one. The Pens evened it up in the second on a James Neal goal eight minutes into the period. It was Neal's 21st of the season, as he teams with Evgeni Malkin on one of the most dynamic and productive lines in the league. Malkin and Chris Kunitz were credited with the assists.

The Pens who are looking to win their fourth in a row, have absolutely blitzed the lowly Canes in the first forty minutes. They outshot Carolina 21-3 in the second period, and have a 37-10 advantage overall. Justin Peters, who is giving regular netminder Cam Ward the night off, has stood on his head and played brilliantly to keep his team in it so far. Pittsburgh will look to punch one through in the third to take home their fourth win in a row.
