The two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins are starting to build momentum after an uneven start to the season. Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist apiece, and the Penguins won their season-best fourth straight game, 5-1 over the slumping Sabres on Saturday.

After keeping the puck out of the net for three periods, Tristan Jarry tucked it in his bag for a keepsake. The rookie made 34 saves for his first NHL shutout, Sidney Crosby extended his point streak to five games and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-0 on Friday night.
