PITTSBURGH (AP) – Patric Hornqvist had his first career hat trick, beating goalie Louis Domingue three times as the Pittsburgh Penguins made quick work of the sinking Arizona Coyotes 6-0 on Monday night.
Chris Kunitz and Kris Letang both had a goal and an assist. Matt Cullen scored his ninth of the season and Sidney Crosby added three assists as Pittsburgh began a busy week by sending the Coyotes to their sixth straight loss. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30 shots for his fifth shutout of the season and the 43rd of his career.
Domingue made 27 saves but Arizona was never in it while going winless on a five-game road trip. The Coyotes have dropped eight consecutive games away from home and haven’t won on opposing ice since Jan. 25.
Pittsburgh has won three of four.
