DENVER, March 4 (UPI) -- Evgeni Malkin continued his hot play with his 38th goal of the season Saturday and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat Colorado 5-1 for their fifth straight win.

Steve Sullivan, Deryk Engelland, Richard Park and Arron Asham also found the net for Pittsburgh.

Marc-Andre Fleury earned the victory with 35 saves.

Matt Hunwick scored and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 23 saves for Colorado.
