The Pittsburgh Penguins have already clinched a playoff spot.
On Tuesday, the Penguins, the big winners in the days leading up to the NHL trade deadline, clinched the Atlantic Division.
The Penguins fell behind by a goal to the Carolina Hurricanes in the third period, but roared back with three goals in the final 10 minutes and 11 seconds for the 5-3 win.
Not only did the Penguins get the win, they got a goal from Brenden Morrow, who was acquired in a trade with the Dallas Stars prior to the deadline.
It was Morrow’s first goal as a member of the Penguins.
The Penguins, who in March went on a 15-game winning streak, have won their last two games after a brief two-game losing streak.
