Analysis from Pittsburgh
→ Less than 24 hours after an emotional shutout loss to the Dallas Stars that halted the team's franchise-best point streak, the Carolina Hurricanes fell 3-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in another closely-contested match up.
"It was a quick turnaround. It can be a positive or a little bit tough. Early on we did a good job getting everyone involved. All four lines were going early on. We just couldn't seem to find the one at the end," Jeff Skinner said. "Guys battled hard."
"Last night was tough. To come in here against a pretty good team, we're still fighting trying to get every point possible, it was a pretty good effort by the guys," Justin Faulk said. "We didn't really sit back too much. We're still trying to play our game."
"A real good effort. We did a real good job. One goal short," head coach Bill Peters said. "Guys played hard, and they've been playing hard for a long time. That won't change moving forward."
