Blog: Canes fall to Pittsburgh in OT, 4-3

Posted December 27, 2013

FINAL: Pittsburgh 4, Canes 3: Jussi Jokinen assisted James Neal for the game-winner in overtime as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Carolina Hurricanes Friday night at PNC Arena, 4-3.

End of Regulation: Canes 3, Pittsburgh 3: Drayson Bowman's goal sent the game to OT, but Carolina leads shots 31-24 and have led for the majority of the game before falling behind for a short time in the third.

2:29 3rd: Canes 3, Pittsburgh 3: Drayson Bowman, playing with Patrick Dwyer and Riley Nash tonight, nets the game-tying goal with just 2:29 to play and it's a whole new game at PNC.

6:45 3rd: Penguins 3, Canes 2: Deryk Engelland gets credit for the go-ahead goal for Pittsburgh as his shot from the point went off Ryan Murphy and past Justin Peters. It is the second time in as many games the Canes have fallen behind after entering the third with the lead.

18:02 3rd: Canes 2, Pittsburgh 2: Chris Conner made a nice move on Justin Peters 1-on-1 and snuck in the equalizer five-hole as the Pens and Canes are now level at 2 early in the third period.

End of 2: Canes 2, Pittsburgh 1: All three goals in the game have come in a 32 second span stretching across the first two periods and the Canes tale a 2-1 edge into the third.

The Canes are out-shooting the Pens 25-15 and each team is 0-for-1 on the PP thru 40 minutes.

19:30 2nd: Canes 2, Pittsburgh 1: Each team has scored in the first 30 seconds of the second period after Sekera broke zeroes with less than two seconds in the first. The Canes lead 2-1 after a spurt of goals.

Sidney Crosby tied the game just 16 seconds into the period as he netted his 21st goal of the year. Just 14 seconds later, Nathan Gerbe recorded his second point of the night on a goal assisted by Alex Semin. 

End of 1: Canes 1, Pittsburgh 0: The Canes got a goal from Andrej Sekera with less than two seconds to play in the first period as they take a lead into the first intermission.

The Canes also own a 16-7 advantage in shots on goal and an 11-7 edge in faceoffs won.

20:00 1st: Canes vs. Pittsburgh: Justin Peters will make his third consecutive start in net tonight for Carolina as they look to stop a three-game losing streak against the Penguins.

With Jiri Tlusty gong to IR after an appendectomy, Zac Boychuck will get the start and Drayson Bowman will slide up a line.

The Pens will be without winger Pascal Dupuis, who suffered a lower body injury Monday in the Pens 5-0 loss to Ottawa.


PREGAME

The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to get back in the win column on Friday when they emerge from the Christmas break to take on the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena (7 p.m., Fox Sports Carolinas / 99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio).

Pittsburgh was on its longest winning streak of the season before having its seven-game tear halted on Monday with a 5-0 loss in Ottawa. Erik Karlsson collected a goal and two assists to help the Senators rout the Penguins and hand Pittsburgh its first setback since losing on Dec. 7 in Boston.

The Metropolitan Division leaders were shut out away from home for the first time since a 1-0 decision at Toronto on Feb. 1, 2012.

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed all five goals on 29 shots for the Penguins, who also lost forward Pascal Dupuis to a lower-body injury early in the first period after he collided with teammate Sidney Crosby.

"Dupuis is going back to Pittsburgh to be re-evaluated," Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said. "We're hoping it's not a severe injury."

Pittsburgh has been decimated by injuries lately, although it's hard to tell considering the Pens lost for just the second time in 14 games on Monday. Dupuis joins key players like Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Paul Martin on the shelf. Wingers Beau Bennett and Tanner Glass, and defensemen Rob Scuderi and Brooks Orpik are also currently sidelined due to various injuries.

Malkin has sat out the last five games with a lower-body issue, and like Dupuis, he is questionable for Friday's game. Pittsburgh defenseman Deryk Engelland also is available for tonight's test after serving a five-game suspension for an illegal check against Detroit's Justin Abdelkader.

Crosby, meanwhile, will try to rebound after having a 10-game point streak halted in Monday's shutout loss. Pittsburgh's captain is leading the NHL with 54 points (20 goals, 34 assists) and he has seven goals and 25 helpers in 24 career games against Carolina.

After dropping the first test of a four-game road trip on Monday, the Pens hope to get back on track by continuing their dominance of Carolina. Pittsburgh is 2-0 against the 'Canes this season and has won four straight and seven of the past eight encounters. The Pens also have won three of the last four meetings in Raleigh.

Carolina will try to reverse the recent trend against the Pens, but the Hurricanes have struggled lately, losing three straight and six of their past seven trips to the ice.

The Hurricanes were dealt a 4-3 regulation loss Monday night by visiting Columbus, as Ryan Johansen and Jack Skille scored 1:28 apart late in the third period to lift the Blue Jackets to the comeback win. Johansen tied the game with 4:02 left and Skille put the Blue Jackets in front at 17:26 of the third with a rising shot from the right circle that beat Justin Peters.

Jeff Skinner scored twice in the loss, but he couldn't beat Blue Jackets goaltender Mike McKenna from in close in the final 30 seconds of the game. Skinner has 10 goals over his last 10 games, giving him a team-high 14 scores in just 26 games this season.

"It's a tough way to lose," Skinner said. "We generated a lot of opportunities, but just couldn't hold onto the lead."

Alexander Semin contributed a goal and an assist for Carolina. Peters, who turned aside a season-high 47 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss at Tampa Bay Saturday, made 21 saves on Monday.

Peters could get the start again over Cam Ward, who hasn't played since losing to Washington on Dec. 20.

Carolina is just 7-8-4 as the host this season and has lost four of its last five games in Raleigh.

    Great effort on all of our goals, but now it's two consecutive games played very well in front of Peters and only a point to show for it. He's kept us in a lot of games but as a fan I don't think he's a long-term solution as starter. What do we do now? We just sent K. to the minors. And I'm a big #12 guy but I'll have to admit the contrast with #87 is obvious. They're not even in the same time zone in terms of leadership right now, and it's not just skill set.

    Canes ought to play all their games on the road. They sure can't win in front of the ones paying the bills. They didn't mention E. Staals name once, I wonder why.Did he even play tonight.

  • sanacito Dec 27, 2013

    Great game...the canes just don't have the talent, especially when it comes to having a real captain. All you had to do was look at the impact that Crosby had on this game vs E.Staal
