Penguins look to continue winning ways vs. Golden Knights

The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to extend the NHL's longest active win streak Saturday when they take on the visiting Vegas Golden Knights.

The Penguins, who will be playing on back-to-back nights at home, picked up their fifth straight win Friday, 4-2 against Dallas. They have outscored opponents 23-11 during the streak.

"We're trying to establish an identity for our team. I think that's what we're starting to build on," said Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang, who had two goals Friday and has 10 points.
