(Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to halt a four-game losing streak when they take the ice tonight at the RBC Center to face the host Carolina Hurricanes.

The Penguins' latest setback came Friday night against the visiting Ottawa Senators. Dany Heatley's two goals and Jason Spezza's goal and two assists helped the Sens skate past Pittsburgh, 6-3, at Mellon Arena.

Michel Ouellet and Evgeni Malkin notched a goal and one assist, while Maxime Talbot scored once for the Penguins.

Marc-Andre Fleury absorbed the loss despite stopping 38 shots for Pittsburgh, which is in the midst of its longest skid since dropping four straight from March 1-8 of last season.

The Hurricanes were last in action on Thursday night, when they earned an easy win over visiting Washington. Erik Cole's hat trick and Cam Ward's 20 saves led Carolina to a dominant 5-0 win over the Caps.

Eric Staal collected a goal and one assist, Scott Walker chipped in two assists and Trevor Letowski notched a goal in his second game back from a three-week absence for the Hurricanes.
