PITTSBURGH — Evgeni Malkin scored twice in his return from injury and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-5 on Sunday afternoon.


James Neal added two goals for Pittsburgh, which matched a club record by winning its 12th straight home game. Jussi Jokinen picked up his third goal in two games and Matt Niskanen put in the winner with less than 8 minutes left.


Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots as Penguins coach Dan Bylsma won his 232nd game with Pittsburgh, moving into a tie with Eddie Johnston for the most victories in franchise history.


Evander Kane had two goals and an assist for the Jets. Jacob Trouba, Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele also scored as Winnipeg remained winless in Pittsburgh since 2006. Al Montoya made 33 saves, but couldn’t make an early two-goal lead stand.


Malkin missed nine games with a lower leg injury, but hardly looked rusty. He scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season and added an assist as the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins extended their home dominance.


Hurricanes 2, Predators 1


RALEIGH, N.C. — Alexander Semin and Jeff Skinner scored and Anton Khudobin made 31 saves to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to their season-high fourth straight win.


Patric Hornqvist tied it for Nashville with a power-play goal at 6:46 of the third period when he tipped in the puck at the right post for his ninth goal. But the Predators, who had earned points in four straight games, dropped their third in a row.


The Hurricanes, who played without injured captain Eric Staal, took a 1-0 lead on Semin’s goal 4:28 into the game. Carolina went ahead for good when Skinner scored with 3:31 left.
