RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes went end-to-end through much of regulation, then dialed it up a notch in overtime. In the end, a single shootout goal made the difference.

After the first five shooters in the tiebreaker failed to score, Kris Letang made two small dekes to his forehand before lifting a backhand shot under the crossbar to give the Penguins a 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena on Friday.
