PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Languishing on a perpetually rebuilding team for more than a year taught David Perron a valuable lesson about confidence.Good teams have them. Bad ones not so much. After wasting away in Edmonton, Perron has rediscovered his soft hands — and the back of the net — in Pittsburgh.The forward scored twice and added an assist in a 7-2 thrashing of reeling Minnesota on Tuesday night, as the Penguins put together the kind of outburst that has been rare at times this season for one of the leagues most potent attacks.As soon as I stepped in here I could feel the (confidence) in this group, said Perron, acquired on Jan. 2 to give Pittsburgh some needed scoring depth. We started feeding off of that pretty quick and it was a good night for everyone.A series of injuries has forced the Penguins to rely heavily on goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to keep them in their usual spot near the top of the Eastern Conference. The players on injured reserve, however, are dwindling. The team that pushed the Wild around looked a lot like the one that steamrolled through the first month of the season.Paul Martin, Kris Letang and Chris Kunitz each had a goal and an assist for the Penguins. Marcel Goc and Brandon Sutter also scored for Pittsburgh and Sidney Crosby picked up three assists as the Penguins posted their second-highest goal total of the year.We havent been scoring like we thought we could, coach Mike Johnston said. Certainly getting some lines back together and playing two or three games with similar combinations, youre seeing some improvement.Fleury made 30 saves and has now beaten every other team in the league.Niklas Backstrom stopped 29 of the 35 shots before being pulled following Letangs goal midway through the third period. Jonas Brodin and Justin Fontaine scored for the Wild, who have lost six straight and did little to make a case for embattled coach Mike Yeo. The team held a lengthy players-only meeting afterward, but it will take more than just clearing the air to get Minnesota back on track.Were so easy to play against, forward Zach Parise said. We lose battles. The details of our game are terrible. We dont make it hard on the other team.The Wild have been one of the leagues biggest disappointments at the seasons halfway point, wasting any momentum carried over from last years surprise run in the second round of the playoffs.The opening 20 minutes against the Penguins was a microcosm of the last three frustrating months. Minnesota dominated at stretches early thanks to some sloppy play by Pittsburgh, which gave the puck away in its own end with alarming regularity. Yet the Wild couldnt convert on several glistening opportunities and once the Penguins found their footing, Minnesota was simply no match.We use the word unflappable and for whatever reason its not in our vocabulary right now, Yeo said. For whatever reason we just fall apart and we start to press and make bigger mistakes.Goc scored for just the second time since the Penguins acquired him from Florida last March, swatting a rebound out of the air past Backstrom 6:16 into the game. Forward Zach Sill picked up the primary assist, giving him his first NHL point in his 48th game, the second-longest pointless streak to start an NHL-career in league history.Perron collected his second goal in Pittsburgh and seventh of the season 12:04 into the first, grabbing a meaty rebound in front of Backstrom, then switching quickly from forehand to backhand and slipping the puck by the stunned goaltender.Backstrom stuffed Kris Letang on a breakaway early in the second and the Wild responded with Brodins second goal of the season on a wrist shot from near the top of the right circle. It was a one-goal game for all of 93 seconds. Kunitz camped in front of Backstrom and flipped a rebound that caromed off Evgeni Malkin into the net.It was all the cushion Fleury would need. The Penguins poured it on in the third and tied its largest margin of victory this season.NOTES: Penguins F Steve Downie left early in the second period after taking an elbow to the face from Minnesota D Ryan Suter. ... Penguins D Olli Maatta will undergo shoulder surgery on Wednesday and miss the rest of the season. ... Pittsburgh plays at the New York Islanders on Friday. ... The Wild visit Buffalo on Thursday. Ron Oester Jersey .ca. Mr. Fraser, It looks like Martin Brodeur is coming back to play for the Blues. I was wondering if you have any great stories or fond memories of your time on the ice with Brodeur - in the NHL, or maybe even the Olympics. Benito Santiago Jersey . In an interview with La Presse this week, the five-time Stanley Cup champion and three-time NHL scoring leader specifically took aim at wingers Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty, saying they cant show up in a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final and come up empty in Game 6. https://www.cheapredsjerseys.us/1635s-au...ersey-reds.html. Old times for a defence that has looked just plain old recently? "No," safety Ryan Clark said. "We used to be much better than that. Reggie Sanders Jersey .

A steady downpour and low temperatures were predicted for much of the night. No makeup date was immediately announced, although it was determined that the game will not be part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Derek Carr had three touchdown passes to lead the Oakland Raiders in a 24-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
