(Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to remain the hottest team in the NHL when they shoot for a 10th straight win Tuesday against the visiting Washington Capitals. Pittsburgh has been perfect so far in March, going 9-0 to record the clubs longest winning streak since an 11-game run from Feb. 21-March 17 of last season. You can watch the game live on TSN2 at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Thanks in large part to the current hot streak, the Penguins have opened a 12- point lead over the New Jersey atop the Atlantic Division and also are two points ahead of Montreal for the top seed in the East. Pittsburghs most recent triumph came Sunday in a home decision over the Boston Bruins, who had won five of six heading into the showdown. The Penguins won 2-1 and Joe Vitales goal with 32 seconds left in the first period stood up as the game-winner. Tomas Vokoun stopped 31 shots for Pittsburgh and captain Sidney Crosby added the other goal to bring his NHL-leading point total to 48 (13 goals, 35 assists). "Its been different guys who have stepped up every game," Crosby said of the win streak. "Seeing Joey V get a big one for us before the end of the first period and then Voky playing the way he did today, it seems like its always different guys. Thats what you need in order to have success consistently." Pittsburgh did get some unwanted news Sunday as defenseman Kris Letang left after the first period with a lower body injury and did not return. Letang leads all NHL defensemen with 28 points this season and his status for this game is unknown as Monday was an off day for the club. The Pens have played their last five games without star center Evgeni Malkin, but last seasons Hart Trophy winner has been skating and is day-to-day. Pittsburgh has won seven straight on home ice since a 6-5 loss to Philadelphia on Feb. 20. The Pens, who are closing a three-game homestand Tuesday, are 10-4-0 in the Steel City this season. While Pittsburgh has vaulted to the top of the East, Washington is still seven points out of a playoff spot. However, the Capitals have won two of their last three games, including a 5-3 decision in Sundays home test against Buffalo. Jason Chimera and Marcus Johansson scored 43 seconds apart in the second period to help Washington earn the recent win over the Sabres. Alex Ovechkin, Troy Brouwer and Mathieu Perreault also scored for the Capitals and Braden Holtby made 27 saves for the win. "Its a big, big win for us tonight," Chimera said. "Guys have a good feeling now and just hopefully well keep it going." Tuesdays tilt kicks off an important four-game road trip for Washington, which is just 4-8-1 as the visiting team this season. After this test in Pittsburgh, the Caps will play two straight in Winnipeg before closing the swing Sunday against the New York Rangers. Pittsburgh has won its last two home games against the Capitals after Washington had taken the previous eight encounters in the Steel City. The Pens have won both matchups in 2013, giving them victories in three straight and four of the last five meetings.

TORONTO – Posted above the whiteboard at the far end of the Maple Leafs dressing room is one puzzling slogan. "Burn the Boats" reads the more mysterious and striking of two mantras posted at the teams practice facility. The mystery behind the message lies with Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. In the hours before the Leafs took to the ice for training camp on Sunday, Carlyle delivered a motivational and seemingly moving speech to his group, weaving a tale into his efforts to illustrate the point. "He had a story about people crossing the sea to take the treasure," James Reimer recalled. "When they got there they burnt their boats so they either had to take their treasure or die. Thats what Burn the Boats means." Essentially the story and subsequent slogan comes down to one central message. "Were all in it together," said Reimer. "Theres no looking back. Theres no turning back. Theres no out. Were in it together. Were going to fight for each other. Theres no safe zone to go back to and regroup really." The second slogan is less cagey, reading "Make Today Count". The Leafs have missed the playoffs in each of the past seven seasons. Carlyles intent is clear, wedge his group together at the outset of a hasty 48-game season.

(Sports Network) - Red-hot right-hander Zack Greinke aims for a seventh straight victory when the first-place Milwaukee Brewers visit Wrigley Field today to close out a four-game series with the Chicago Cubs. An offseason trade acquisition from Kansas City, Greinkes National League debut was delayed by a non-baseball injury in the spring, and he was 0-1 after dropping an 8-0 decision at Atlanta in his initial appearance with the Brewers on May 4. Hes been everything advertised since, however, winning six decisions in seven starts while nearly halving a bloated 9.00 earned run average down to 4.69 through 48 innings. The 27-year-old Floridian downed St. Louis, 5-3, in his most recent start, improving to 6-1 on the year after allowing seven hits and three runs in seven innings. Hes pitched six or more innings in all but two of his eight starts and allowed three runs or less in five of eight. Milwaukee moved a game ahead of the NL Central Division pack in Wednesdays third game against the Cubs, as Rickie Weeks finished with three hits and a solo home run and the middle of the order did plenty of damage in a 9-5 victory. Casey McGehee, Corey Hart, Yuniesky Betancourt and Jonathan Lucroy each drove in two runs and Prince Fielder scored three times for the Brewers, who snapped a two-game skid. Chris Narveson (4-4) piccked up the win, surrendering four runs on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks over 5 1/3 frames.dddddddddddd The Brewers now lead the Central over skidding St. Louis, which dropped its fifth straight Wednesday in Washington. The Cubs are fifth in the six-team division, 11 games back. Reed Johnson drilled a three-run home run for Chicago, which had prevailed in the first two tests of this series. Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano (5-4) sat through a 102-minute rain delay only to give up five runs on nine hits with two walks and six strikeouts over six frames. The Cubs start another offseason trade prize, right-hander Matt Garza, for the 12th time this season in todays finale. A 15-game winner last season with Tampa Bay, Garza finally got his first two wins of 2011 by beating Arizona and St. Louis on April 30 and May 11, respectively. Hes dropped two in a row since, however, allowing 11 hits and six runs in 10 innings against Cincinnati and Philadelphia - games in which the Cubs were outscored by a 15-3 margin. Garza lost a 6-0 verdict at Milwaukee back on April 9 in his lone career start against the Brewers. Chicago has won just three of the 11 games hes pitched. The Brewers took two of three at home over the Cubs in early April, while the teams split six meetings last year at Wrigley Field. ' ' '
