Pittsburgh • 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 moved within three victories of its own NHL record for consecutive wins. Malkin, back from an upper-body injury, got his first goal in three weeks.

Tomas Vokoun had 20 saves and 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.

The league record for consecutive wins was set by the Mario Lemieux-led Penguins in 1992-93.

Senators 3, Rangers 0 • In Ottawa, Ben Bishop turned aside 24 shots to earn his second career NHL shutout, leading Ottawa to a win over New York.

Andre Benoit, Guillaume Latendresse and Colin Greening scored for the Senators, and Mika Zibanejad and Chris Neil chipped in with two assists apiece. EASTERN CONFERENCE
