TORONTO -- Pascal Dupuis scored two third-period goals to lead the Penguins to a 3-1 victory against Toronto at the Air-Canada Centre tonight.
Dupuis broke a 1-1 tie at 17:50 of the third when he took a feed from linemate Chris Kunitz and beat Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens from above the left hash mark.
The victory extended the Penguins' winning streak to seven games and raised their record to 20-8.
Neither team scored during the first period, when Toronto generated nine shots on Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and the Penguins got five on Scrivens.
Tyler Bozak of Toronto finally broke the scoreless tie at 10:01 of the second period, taking a cross-ice pass from Cody Franson and beating Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury from along the goal line to the left of the net.
The Penguins pulled even at 12:42 of the third, as Pascal Dupuis got a cross-ice, backhanded feed from Sidney Crosby and threw a shot by Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens from between the right circle and the crease.
The goal also netted an assist for Kunitz.
After Dupuis got what proved to be the game-winner, Craig Adams clinched the victory by scoring into an empty net with 9.4 seconds left while the Penguins were killing a penalty.
The Penguins are off until Saturday, when the New York Rangers will visit Consol Energy Center at 1:08 p.m.
