PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins hope to carry over their momentum into the season's second half starting Tuesday night against Ottawa.

The Penguins won their final three games before the All-Star break to move into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Captain Sidney Crosby has recorded a point in seven straight games. The two-time MVP says his production is a byproduct of improved play by his line.

Pittsburgh's offense is starting to click. The Penguins have scored at least four goals in four of their last six games led by Crosby and All-Star center Evgeni Malkin.
