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.
