PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Penguins squandered a two-goal lead late in the third period, but Evgeni Malkin won the shootout by deftly faking out David Aebischer as Pittsburgh beat Montreal 5-4 for its fifth consecutive victory Thursday night.

Erik Christensen also put the puck past Aebischer for the Penguins, who won their second shootout in a row - they beat Dallas 4-3 on Friday - after losing five of their first six.

Montreal lost its fifth in nine shootouts as Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stopped the final two Canadiens shooters, Chris Higgins and Tomas Plekanec, after Alex Kovalev had matched Christensen's score.
