Pens’ Win Streak At 10 Games With 2-1 Victory

Posted By Sam Greenberg On March 20, 2013 @ 1:03 PM In NHL | No Comments

Defenseman Matt Niskanen scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Sidney Crosby had two assists and the Pittsburgh Penguins extended their winning streak to 10 games with a 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.

Niskanen’s goal at 11:58 came nine seconds after the Penguins killed a four-minute penalty in the third period.

The winning streak is the longest of the season for the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins and the second-longest in the NHL this season.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves and Crosby picked up his NHL-leading 36th and 37th assists for the Penguins, who were without reigning MVP Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) for the sixth game in a row. The Penguins were also without defenseman Kris Letang (lower body injury).
