Jets Grounded in Penguins' Deep Freeze

Standard Spin: The Pittsburgh Penguins made it look easy on Saturday (although their goaltending left a little to be desired), defeating the Winnipeg Jets 8-5.  And who didn't get on the scoresheet?  Most notable was Evgeni Malkin with 5 points, but Chris Kunitz had 4 of his own.  Jordan Staal scored his first goal since returning from injury, and he also added an assist.  James Neal notched his 29th on the year.  It was just one of those games where it was good to have a piece of the Penguins - 11 different skaters recorded points.

Other game notes: It wasn't half bad to have some Jets either, 10 of whom recorded points.  Little, Wheeler and Stapleton each had 2 point nights. (2/12/12)
