Malkin scores twice in return, Penguins rally for 6-5 win to extend home win streak to 12

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Evgeni Malkin scored twice in his return from injury and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-5 on Sunday afternoon.

James Neal added two goals for Pittsburgh, which matched a club record by winning its 12th straight home game. Jussi Jokinen picked up his third goal in two games and Matt Niskanen put in the winner with less than 8 minutes left.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots as Penguins coach Dan Bylsma won his 232nd game with Pittsburgh, moving into a tie with Eddie Johnston for the most victories in franchise history.

Evander Kane had two goals and an assist for the Jets. Jacob Trouba, Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele also scored as Winnipeg remained winless in Pittsburgh since 2006. Al Montoya made 33 saves, but couldn't make an early two-goal lead stand.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
