Penguins end Bruins’ 19-game point streak with 4-2 win
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jared McCann scored twice, Matt Murray finished with 39 saves and the Pittsburgh Penguins handed the Boston Bruins their first regulation loss since January with a 4-2 victory on Sunday night.
David Krejci picked up his 19th of the season and John Moore got Boston within one when he scored with just over a minute to go. But the Bruins couldn’t complete the comeback, ending their 19-game point streak.
It was the first regulation loss for Krejci and company since Jan. 19 against the New York Rangers.
Jaroslav Halak made 33 stops, but Boston remained winless in Pittsburgh since December 2015.
Led by Copley, Hagelin and Nick Jensen, the Capitals killed off all five minor penalties they took and won despite being outshot 34-18. They haven’t lost since adding Hagelin and Jensen to their lineup before the trade deadline.
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Aleksander Barkov reached 30 goals for the first time in his career, and Florida earned its second straight win since a costly six-game slide.
Making his third NHL start, Sam Montembeault stopped 19 shots as the Panthers finished their season series against the Red Wings with a 3-0-1 record.
The 23-year-old Barkov had at least 21 goals in each of the previous three seasons, but he had never reached 30 until he made it 6-1 7:44 into the third period.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Carl Grundstrom scored his second NHL goal in his second career game and the Kings won for just the second time in 15 games.
Jakob Silfverberg and Daniel Sprong scored for the 14th-place Ducks, who followed up an impressive performance against Montreal with a lifeless effort against their neighbors. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots.
