PITTSBURGH – Matt Cooke had a goal and an assist, four other Pittsburgh players scored, and the Penguins earned their sixth straight win by beating the St. Louis Blues 5-1 on Tuesday night.
Kris Letang had two assists, and Tyler Kennedy, Evgeni Malkin, Ruslan Fedotenko and Alex Goligoski had goals. Only five of Pittsburgh’s 18 skaters failed to record a point in the win that pushed the Penguins’ record to an NHL-best 8-1.
Paul Kariya scored for the Blues, who are 1-3-1 in their past five games.
The Penguins took a season-high 43 shots and controlled play for much of the game against the Blues, who are on a road trip that has taken them to both coasts. St. Louis won its previous game at Anaheim on Saturday.
