Malkin scores in return, Penguins rip Jets 4-0 to push winning streak to 14

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pascal Dupuis scored twice and Evgeni Malkin had a goal in his return to the lineup, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night for their 14th straight win.

Chris Kunitz had a goal and an assist and Sidney Crosby had two assists to push his league-best points total to 56 as the Penguins capped a giddy 24 hours and moved within three victories of the NHL record for consecutive wins.

Tomas Vokoun stopped 20 shots and even recorded his first assist while getting his 50th career shutout.

Al Montoya, making just his fourth start of the season, made 39 saves for Winnipeg but the Jets were no match for the NHL's hottest team.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
