RALEIGH, N.C. -- On one of the stranger days in franchise history, on a day in which the Penguins made a blockbuster trade only to have it rejected by the NHL and then have to rework it so that not one but two valued members were sent packing, they still managed to do what they've done best lately.

They won.

Phil Kessel scored twice, and he, Evgeni Malkin and Jake Guentzel all put up three points as the Penguins throttled the Hurricanes 6-1, Friday night at PNC Arena. It was their largest margin of victory all season, it extended their winning streak to six, and it pushed them back atop the Metropolitan Division at 36-22-4.
