Penguins aim to rebound against red-hot 'Hawks

CHICAGO -- The Pittsburgh Penguins coughed up a late lead Tuesday night, which likely won't put them in the best of moods heading into a Wednesday test against the NHL's hottest team.

The Penguins squandered a two-goal advantage in a 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars and now must follow that up with a trip to Chicago to face the blazing Blackhawks, who have won nine of their last 10 games.

Pittsburgh hasn't put up great numbers on the road and fell to 13-11-5 away from home. But it's most likely how the Penguins lost that will likely stick with them as they prepare for back-to-back games against Chicago.
