PITTSBURGH (AP) - Look out, the NHL's highest scoring team is learning to play defense too.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have ripped off 13 straight wins, the second longest streak in franchise history. While they're getting the typical production from star center Sidney Crosby, the Penguins are developing into one of the league's top defensive teams.
Pittsburgh has allowed just nine goals in its last nine games, the lowest total in the NHL over that stretch. Defensesman Brooks Orpik says the team just got tired of trying to win every game in a shootout and knew it needed to tighten things up if it wanted to make a serious run at the Stanley Cup.
The Penguins will try to make it 14 in a row Thursday when they host Winnipeg.
