Dupuis, Neal spark Penguins to 4-2 win over Wild
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Pascal Dupuis had a short-handed goal and an assist, James Neal scored for the sixth time this season and the depleted Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 on Tuesday night.
Chris Kunitz and Jordan Staal also got goals and Matt Cooke had two assists for the Penguins, who were winless in their previous three games. They have already played eight times in the first 13 days of the season, improving to 4-2-2.
Cal Clutterbuck had a short-handed goal and Guillaume Latendresse scored for the first time in almost an entire calendar year, but the Wild didn’t do much against backup goalie Brent Johnson and fell to 2-2-2. Their four-game winning streak against the Penguins ended.
