Maple Leafs Vs. Penguins: Pittsburgh Looks To Keep Winning Streak Alive

The Pittsburgh Penguins look to extend their winning streak to eight games as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at home on Tuesday evening.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been cruising along without star center Sidney Crosby, thanks in part to the play of Evgeni Malkin. On Wednesday night, the Penguins will host the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first game of a two game series. The Penguins have won seven games in a row and will look to make it eight as Malkin, the NHL's leading scoring, hopes to pick up right where he left off before the All-Star break.

The Maple Leafs are also trying to pick themselves up as they come back from the All-Star break, trying to pick up another win as they try to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2003-2004 NHL season. They're currently tied with Florida and New Jersey for the final two playoff spots, so a victory over the Penguins could go a long way.
