PITTSBURGH, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Brandon Sutter ignited a three-goal Pittsburgh second period just 70 seconds into the stanza Friday and the Penguins went on to down Columbus 4-2.

Pittsburgh won its third in a row and reached 10 wins in its 14 games this season.

A power-play goal in the first period by Chris Kunitz put the Penguins in front and they then broke the game open with three goals during the first 5:34 of the second.

After Sutter snapped a shot by Sergei Bobrovsky, Kris Letang and Jayson Megna added goals for a 4-0 lead. Bobrovsky was removed after Letang's goal and was replaced by Curtis McElhinney, who allowed a goal on 14 shots.

Derek MacKenzie and Ryan Johansen produced the goals for Columbus, which will host Pittsburgh Saturday.

Marc-Andre Fleury picked up the win by stopping 37-of-39 shots.
