    Pascal Dupuis scored two goals to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Dupuis scored late in the second period and in the opening seconds of the third as the Penguins (11-3-1) concluded a five-game road trip on a winning note and halted Toronto's three-game winning streak.

    Elsewhere, a major blunder by Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby helped the New Jersey Devils beat the Washington Capitals 1-0.

    Holtby made 27 saves but his only mistake of the night was a costly one. He roamed behind his net to stop the puck and then fired it up the boards, where Devils winger Mike Cammalleri picked off the pass and fired the puck into an open net for his team-high seventh goal of the season.

    The New York Islanders matched a franchise record of winning 11 of the first 16 games of the season when they beat the Florida Panthers 4-3 in a shootout.
