Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't have their
newest star on the ice, but received a contribution from one of their old ones
to pick up yet another victory.
Evgeni Malkin delivered a goal in his return from a nine-game absence, while
Tomas Vokoun turned back all 20 shots he faced as the red-hot Penguins ran
their winning streak to 14 straight games with a dominating 4-0 decision over
the Winnipeg Jets at the CONSOL Energy Center.
Pascal Dupuis scored twice and Chris Kunitz added a goal and an assist for
Pittsburgh, which made some additional headlines with its blockbuster
acquisition of two-time 50-goal scorer Jarome Iginla from the Calgary Flames
in the early-morning hours of Thursday.
Iginla has yet to join his new teammates, with the accomplished veteran
forward likely to make his Penguins' debut when Pittsburgh hosts the New York
Islanders on Saturday.
Vokoun, pressed into duty with No. 1 goaltender Marc Andre-Fleury injured in
Tuesday's 1-0 triumph over Montreal, also notched an assist in addition to
recording his 50th career shutout.
Al Montoya finished with 39 saves for the Southeast-leading Jets, who entered
the matchup of division front-runners having won two straight.
