Malkin, Penguins extend streaks

PITTSBURGH — Evgeni Malkin can't really explain what's going on with the Penguins. He'd rather just enjoy the ride.

Malkin pounded home a rebound 1:31 into overtime to lift the Penguins to their sixth straight win, a 4-3 triumph over the Capitals on Sunday.

"I have great confidence now, you know?" Malkin said. "You win six games, I think everyone has great confidence now. … And having fun."

Malkin has scored in six straight games, matching the longest streak in the league this season. He added two assists to push his league-leading point total to 58.

Game highlights: Tyler Seguin scored the decisive goal in a shootout as the Bruins beat the host Flyers 6-5. … Jonas Hiller made 43 saves and the host Ducks beat the Avalanche 3-2 for their sixth straight win.
