-- The Penguins (26-8-0, 52 points) lead the Atlantic Division by 15 points. With 14 games left, Pittsburgh has a seven-point lead in the Eastern Conference for home-ice advantage until the Stanley Cup Final. The Penguins have won 13 straight, the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. The 1992-93 Penguins won 17 in a row, an NHL record.


-- Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is day-to-day with a neck injury after being bumped by teammate Tyler Kennedy in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Fleury has been brilliant of late, allowing just three goals in five games. Backup Tomas Vokoun finished the game, stopping 12 shots to safeguard the win.


-- The Penguins are led by captain Sidney Crosby, who is tops in the NHL with 54 points, 11 more than Tampa Bay centre Steven Stamkos and 12 ahead of teammate Chris Kunitz. James Neal has 17 goals and 13 assists.


-- Pittsburgh has sold out Consol Energy Center for 271 straight games.


-- Penguins defenceman Kris Letang is out with a broken toe. Newcomer Brenden Morrow played for the Penguins on Tuesday and Douglas Murray skated at practice with the team for the first time on Wednesday.
