PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby scored his 13th goal, Tomas Vokoun stopped 31 shots, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 on Sunday for their ninth straight win.
Joe Vitale added his first goal in more than a year for the Penguins, who have beaten the Bruins five consecutive times.
Tyler Seguin scored his 10th goal for Boston, and Tuukka Rask made 16 saves but couldn't stop the Bruins from losing to Pittsburgh for the second time in less than a week.
The Penguins scored three times in the final 7 minutes Tuesday to steal a 3-2 victory. There were no dramatics necessary this time, as hockey's hottest team never trailed to remain unbeaten in March.
Pittsburgh, which moved into first place in the Eastern Conference - two points ahead of Montreal - has allowed just five goals in five games.
SENATORS 4, JETS 1
OTTAWA (AP) - Jakob Silfverberg scored twice to lead Ottawa over Winnipeg.
Guillaume Latendresse and Kyle Turris added goals for the Senators (15-8-6), who got 25 saves from Robin Lehner.
Zach Bogosian scored the lone goal for the Jets (15-12-2). Ondrej Pavelec made 38 saves, but Winnipeg's three-game winning streak was snapped.
Trailing 2-0 heading into the third, the Jets finally beat Lehner at 3:26 as Bogosian's shot from just inside the blue line made it through traffic and just under the crossbar.
Evander Kane had a great chance to tie the game midway through the period on a 2-on-1 break, but was robbed by Lehner, who made a great pad save.
