Penguins wrap up Atlantic Division with latest win.
The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched the Atlantic Division title with their 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.
The Penguins are now 30-10-0 for the season, and a remarkable 16 points clear of the New York Islanders in second spot in their division.
Their feat looked in jeopardy as they fell behind in the third, but three goals in quick succession ensured that they sealed the win.
Beau Bennett and Evgeni Malkin scored 13 seconds apart, while there was also a first goal for Brenden Morrow.
Pittsburgh remain without the injured duo Sidney Crosby and James Neal, but still had enough fire-power to hand Carolina its club-record eighth straight home loss.
