As superstars align, Oilers, Pens focus on improvement

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- A game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Edmonton Oilers can be circled on the calendar well in advance for the matchup between stars Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid.

Perhaps it will play out that the centers who are widely considered the top two players in the world -- Crosby, 30, who has captained Pittsburgh to three Stanley Cups, including the past two; and McDavid, 20, who won the NHL scoring title and the Hart Trophy as league MVP last season -- will steal the show Tuesday night when the teams meet at PPG Paints Arena.

The teams, however, are more interested in getting on the right track.
