COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Deryk Engelland, Chris Kunitz and Jussi Jokinen scored and backup Jeff Zatkoff had 19 saves in his first NHL win to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins past the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-0 Saturday night for their fourth victory in a row.
Zatkoff, 0-2 with a 5.06 goals-against average and a .818 save percentage coming in, made several big stops but wasn't very busy. He's backing up Marc-Andre Fleury while Tomas Vokoun recovers from preseason surgery.
Engelland scored on a rapid-fire one-timer and Kunitz picked up his eighth when a shot went in off a Blue Jacket's stick in the third. Jokinen added an empty-netter.
A crowd of 18,634, including thousands of Penguins fans, cheered wildly when it was announced that Columbus will host the 2015 NHL All-Star weekend.
