Pittsburgh looks to extend its red-hot streak and catch the first place Rangers by winning their 12th consecutive home game against the Islanders Tuesday night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are the hottest team in hockey, and at 8-1-1 in their last ten, could extend that run against an Islanders team they're a perfect 4-0-0 against this season. With the Isles all but officially eliminated from playoff contention, they'll hope to spoiler to Pittsburgh's chances at catching the Rangers, who lead the Atlantic - and the Eastern Conference - by a single point over the Pens (101-100) with seven games remaining.

Of the many red-hot scorers for Pittsburgh, Pascal Dupuis might be the hottest at the moment. The right winger is the middle of a 10 game points streak for the Pens (8 goals, 5 assists). Dupuis also leads the team with points against the Isles this season (seven). The Pens have won 11 consecutive home games against the Islanders, and five games in a row.
