Pittsburgh is seeking its 11th-straight victory on Saturday afternoon.

The Penguins will look to keep their 10-game winning streak alive on Friday when they face the Devils in a St. Patrick's Day matinee at 1 p.m. inside the Prudential Center.

Pittsburgh (43-21-5) is coming off a 5-2 triumph against the Rangers on Thursday night that saw center Sidney Crosby and defenseman Kris Letang return to the lineup after extended absences. The team now sits just four points behind New York for first place in the Eastern Conference.

New Jersey (41-25-5), meanwhile, is looking to stay hot as well. The Devils beat Colorado 1-0 in a shootout last time out and have won five of their past six games.

The last time these two teams met on Jan. 7, New Jersey earned a 3-1 victory at CONSOL Energy Center behind goals from Adam Henrique, Ilya Kovalchuk and Dainius Zubrus as well as a spectacular 41-save performance from goalie Martin Brodeur.
