Dupuis quietly thriving for Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has carved out a career as a role player only too happy to play in the shadows of his more high-profile teammates.

The way Dupuis is playing, it's hard to consider him a role player anymore. The veteran has already set career highs in goals (23) and points (50) with two weeks left in the regular season. His 10-game point streak is the longest active streak in the NHL, territory usually reserved for teammates Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby.

Dupuis has found a way to thrive on whatever line he's put on this season, whether paired with Malkin and James Neal or Crosby and Tyler Kennedy, as he was in a 5-2 victory over New Jersey on Sunday.
